Solar/Batterypack Phone Chargers
Not trying to be funny, but do you need a mobile phone while touring? Part of the appeal of cycling for me is the un-electronicness of it though I am not averse to electronic devices when not on the move.
If going really remote, will there be a mobile signal anyway?
'I do not believe in the three-speed gear at all', the sergeant was saying. 'It is a newfangled instrument, it crucificies the legs, the half of the accidents are due to it.' (From 'The Third Policeman')
Needed phone for:
Booking bus from Ullapool to Inverness
Booking Hostel in Inverness
Checking for camping/bunkhouse/hostel availability in Stornoway
Phoning guy that looks after Ardvourlie so we could get in
So yes I did need it.
Although mostly what I used the phone for was GPS tracking.
Do Nellyphants count?

Some people I know of are cycling to the Arctic Circle from London at the mo (only 5 days away from it as I write) and are using these products to keep their phones and other electronics charged - i guess they must be working well as the twitter and facebook updates are coming through daily.
