DIY iPod Solar Charger – cheap and cheerful


How to build your own cheapo iPod solar charger. A soldering iron, a bit of Velcro, steady hands and the usual caveats and you’re done.

 I looked everywhere for a lightweight solar iPod charger. Nothing fancy, just something I could attach to the top of my backpack. I couldn’t find one anywhere, I couldn’t even find instructions on how to build one. So, I set about building one for myself. As this was all about getting very light materials, this set-up is very simple but the charger has no protection from branches, rain, or marmots.
