Most gadget chargers only serve one purpose, but the A-Solar Travel Pal design team decided that energizing devices was not enough.

As the name suggests, the A-Solar Travel Pal is a charger that relies on the sun to boost dying gadgets. Aside from this function, this nifty item packs a safety device within its small frame. There's an attached torchlight and an audible alarm to signal people or scare off attackers. The A-Solar Travel Pal also has a variety of connectors to charge devices that don't use USB cables. The internal battery has a high capacity and takes about 11-14 hours for a full charge through sunlight. It's compact, lightweight and would make a great travel companion for any adventurer.
