Anyone who owns a 4G smartphone knows that if you surf the web, make a few phone calls, and update your Facebook page, you’re lucky if your device can last half a day. If you’re away from an outlet, your only option is some sort of external battery.

A new solar charger has turned up that will work with just about any gadget on the market called the Switch 8 Solar Recharger.
