Thanks to the built-in solar panels, the Solio Hybrid 1000 and Solio Magnesium can charge your mobile phone from the energy it collects and stores from the sun. One hour of direct sunlight will give the Hybrid 1000 15 minutes of talktime, where as the Magnesium will offer 20 minutes.
Both boast mini USB adaptors allowing them to be connected to any compatible phones. Furthermore, the Solar Magnesium is compatible with an iGO tip that allows you to use your Magnesium to charge a multiple of different handsets, though this iGO tip will need to be purchased separately.
