The Phoebus solar charger is a small and portable charger designed to juice up your gadgets using the sun's rays.

The Phoebus solar charger, whic was designed by Tommaso Ceschi, does not look like most solar chargers with its quirky, almost human-like form. The charger is also very small and can be clipped onto a book bag or placed in the pocket when not in use. The charger juices up gadgets using its attached mini USB cable. While not all gadgets charge using a mini USB cable, it isn't outside the realm of possibility to think that adapters could be designed.

When people talk about integrating solar power into our everyday lives, they need to be highlighting designs like the Phoebus solar charger. Phoebus is small and accessible; a gadget that isn't tough to envision hanging off of purse straps or keychains.
