Not sure it'd be as tough and it's mainly water resistant whereas this one looks pretty much waterproof...and bowling ball proof.

I met up with Ben the other day at an alternative energy car show in our area. We talked a bit about the solar panel, it is not your run of the mill panel. It has some additional nice features in addition to the ruggedness that make it pretty nice. For instance, it has an automatic restart. So, if a cloud goes in front of the sun and the voltage drops and say your phone stops charging. The automatic restart will automatically start charging your phone when you get enough voltage again. A regular solar panel will not restart charging.

Ooo, can I win?

I probably can't, eh? I didn't see any small print!

Yay! It is people like Ben and Josh that drive this eco culture. Without them, the people like us could not point at actual products that were designed by a tangible, specific person or team of actual individual people to touch or speak to in person. This "builder" type of individual is dying slowly in society, as the industrial age makes way for the information age. I pledge to mercilessly promote this product to all I know . Just give me some cards and literature to spread the awareness.

Congrats! That's a sweet gizmo.. ;) Enjoy it, I would..

I can build you a nice 5 volt portable stereo amp/speaker to go with that. Bluetooth and all..

Here's an example..

Its temporary solar recharge via USB but there were interrupted will come when charging some device so far would install solar panels in your home might be better utilized.

Most of these were designed for the 5 volt Amp/Bluetooth units that I build except for the Whammer-Jammer with all of the LiPo's and the Lepai. It operates at 12 volts and the Bluetooth unit operates from a separate 5 volt bank battery. All totally portable and will operate for many hours on battery. Connect via Bluetooth and yer jammin'..

Took the Whammer-Jammer to the drive-in. Everyone around me turned their junk off.. LOL..

Here's some pics on ImageShack. Note that I moved the same Amp/Battery/Bluetooth around to most of the other speakers..
