Solar charger for ipod/phone ?

Anyone got any recommendations for a decent solar powered charger for my ipod [and phone]

I have searched around a bit and found lots of cr@ppy ones, nothing that jumps out as worth the ££, not that I want to pay a lot, but would rather buy something good once rather than cheap junk that doesnt last anyway.

Any tales or recommendations ?

Thanks
Sarah :flower:

The new free loader pro looks good and will charge camera batteries as well. About £70 from CAT.
Has anyone seen the plot, I seem to have lost mine?

I have a classic freeloader but have to say it has not been as impressive as I had hoped. We tend to charge the phones via a 12v socket from the solar panels / battery or via the car.
