Solio CLASSIC SOLAR CHARGER
As the summer bows out, try to catch that last bit of heat outside. Grab your laptop, take a long lunch and don’t come back to your cubicle. But you’ll need this Solio charger for some juice. The Solio has both a solar panel and battery so it can charge your gadgets using power from the sun or from a wall socket. One hour of sunshine nets 20 minutes of additional talk time on your phone. Just don’t waste it playing Brick Builder. ($99.95; solio.com)
