Cell Phone Solar: The Video



I wrote about Cell Phone Solar before at solarray and in one of my diaries at dailykos.


What I wrote a few months ago and what I learned in Jamaica is still true:

Cell phones change everything
Cell phone solar with AA/D battery charging is a useful minimum scale
The price point should be $10 American or less

Hi, George,
I read your post about the Newlite Portable, Solar LED Lights on Cool Tools.
You mention:"The only quibble ... there's a light sensor that will not allow the lamps to go on in the daytime. I'd prefer a switch so that I can decide when to turn them on or off without being overridden by the sensor.
Solution: Place a small piece of electrical or masking tape over the sensor, and you are back in control!

I put electrical tape and then some wadding and then duct tape over the sensor but there are still times when the light won't light in strong sun.

George,

that is unspeakably cool. One of my biggest problems is that I do not remember to charge my cell at night, yet I walk everywhere, often in bright, bright light. The perfect solution!
