Solar-Power Mobile Charger Is Shiny, Stylish

The international luxury accessory company Dunhill, based in London, has released a solar power mobile device charger that appears to be as impressive in performance as it is in style.

We first caught sight of the shiny new device over on the GreenLaunches blog, and noted the beautiful design and sleek case that is seemingly uncommon for similar solar chargers. We’ve seen several similar devices, but many are either too bulky, too weak or still in the development stage.

The lightweight aluminum solar charger from Dunhill claims to be able to hold enough juice to power a mobile gadget for 30 hours, and the device itself can be charged from a USB port on a personal computer, or by the built-in solar panels.

The price of the new solar-power charger is not listed since the charger is only available in a handful of speciality shops in the United States, mostly in New York and California, but we’re betting it’s on the pricey side, qualifying it mostly as a high-end novelty item.
