Solar Powered Experiment

A week ago, a powerful storm ripped through the area and took out the power (and many trees, as well).  I was fortunate that the power was out for only 12 hours, but some people in the area were without power for up to five days.

During this powerless interval, it put things into perspective how dependent we are upon electricity.  Fortunately, I was not immediately worried about being left with dead cell phones due to having a Solio and an iGo Charge Anywhere on hand.

In light of the past week’s events, I am experimenting if I can go a week by charging my iPhone by using nothing but solar power.  Fortunately, the weather has remained fairly sunny lately, so being able to get a sufficient amount of sunlight to power my mobile phone should work.
