Thin-Film Rollable Solar Charger Is Quite Hardy Indeed

Perhaps you’re already in the habit of rolling up a yoga mat when you hop on your bike or jump in the car. Why not a portable, rollable solar charger, designed to make the most of the sun’s rays?

This all-in-one off-grid charger by Powerfilm takes care of your portables (cellphone, camera, and iPod) using your product’s DC charging cable, while also offering sunny solar juice for AA/AAA/C/D battery chargers. Oh, and another bonus: a portable PowerPack that can travel with you, fully charged, when carrying the Rollable Soalr Charger itself isn’t convenient, offering portable power for laptop charging, remote lighting, AC appliances and more.

According to Envirogadget, the Rollable Solar Charger’s panels are made of thin-film photovoltaics on-plastic covered in a fluoropolymer coating for weather resistance and waterproofing. Which means that this device–unlike many of the solar chargers on the market today–can be used on a boat or in the rain. It retails for $299.95 through Solar Sphere.
