The first apple endorsed solar charger for your iPhone 3G and 3Gs is finally a reality!! Novothink, a developer of alternative energy products, has developed a solar charger that is ready for production and due out this fall! Unlike several other iPhone accessories and battery extenders, this charger will not interfere with with your usb access, camera, talk, or speaker capabilities. Resonably slim at 4 7/8″ X 2 5/8″ X 7/8″, this charger is available in 8 different colors and will only set you back $70. Considering a new car charger is ~$30, I find this price pretty reasonable. Only 2 hours of direct solar exposure provides about 30 minutes of talk time on a 3G network or 60 minutes of talk time on a 2G network.
