The portable phone-charger that soaks up data and free sunshine

From Wired:

Berlin-based start-up Changers is taking action against climate change -- and they're starting with phone charging. "If everyone contributes a little, we can alter behaviour," says Hans Raffauf of Changers. The company has developed a solar-powered phone charger that measures energy production and shares the data with others.

Solar charging is great, but paying extra to crow to the world about it seems silly.

Solio offer a couple of nice solar chargers and have since at least 2006. In fact, you can go to REI and find a fair selection of devices to fit most budgets. Amazon also have some devices.
