With the increasing shift towards solar power energy, not to mention our increasing tendency to bring our electronics into the wilderness with us, it's no surprise to see technology companies taking the same step like with the Lava Solar Charger.

The black and orange defibrillator-looking device, which is slightly bigger than a iPhone, has a built-in solar panel and a rubberized, matte finish. The charger has a 3.5-watt solar panel, and the internal battery can hold up to 4,000 mAh of power. While the Lava Solar Charger can also be charged externally by USB or Mains, the charger can fully recharge a device's battery in eight hours.

The charger comes with two regular USB ports, a micro-USB charging cable and a standard USB cable, giving you the option to charge two devices at once. A blue LCD screen shows the progress of the charge, and with a full load, the Lava Solar Charger can recharge a device multiple times over the course of a day.
