  • Solar charger

    For $339 you could probably afford to buy 6-10 spare camera batteries (or those emergency phone chargers) that weigh less than the solar charger, take up less room. and don't restrict access to your backpack.

  • Not for photographers

    That's all gadgets for consumers and not photographers.

  • As a photographer....

    I love the innovation.
  • If you're willing to buy lenses for a phone . . . (and other thoughts)

    If you're willing to buy lenses for a phone . . .

    . . . maybe, just maybe, you should be looking into a DSLR.

    "Panono" "Price: $549"

    ". . . you throw the ball in the air . . ."

    . . . and watch $550 shatter into a million pieces that one time you fail to catch it?

    "The Selfie"

    Those earbuds that come with your iOS device with the volume controls? They also do the same thing.

    "Fuse 10W Solar charger" "Price: $339"

    I'd rather buy a small, portable battery. Much cheaper, and still lasts all day.
    • I'm not sure

      I'm not sure someone that would be happy with a $20 lens stuck on a smartphone would appreciate the DSLR even on the low end.
