Scotty Pro - solar battery charger

I spotted this on I Want One Of Those. It’s the Scotty Pro solar charger from German company Solarc.

Pop this little solar charging beauty in direct sunlight for a few hours and it will charge up its rechargeable AA batteries enabling it to power up your mobile phone, games console, MP3 player, digital camera or any other USB-powered device, and it will run for up to 12 hours.

Of course it’s not always sunny (sadly) but that doesn’t matter, because you can stick a couple of standard AAs into your Scotty Pro, and it’ll charge up your devices just the same. Come rain or shine, the Scotty Pro is an indispensable power provider for a multitude of appliances when you’re out and about.

The Scotty comes with a mass of adaptors for mobiles, and a USB cable that will charge iPods, digital cameras, PDAs and any device with a USB port. Now you only need one charger when you’re on the move.

I’ve got the Scotty … amateur, I guess. I got it a few years ago with just the Psion 5/5mx adapter. Certainly, the other adapters would be a cool addition to my basic solar unit.


An alternative might be Powermonkey and Powermonkey explorer, which appears to be the solar version.
