I'm looking at solar ovens right now.  How cool it would be to be able to still cook, even without a fire!

I found a neat little solar charger that charges AA batteries.

It can also charge USB devices.  I am outfitting my supplies using mostly AA devices so I can always have the use of them.  Also I have a few adapters that fit on AA batteries so they will work with other sizes like D-cell and C-cell.  It is pricey but worth a look. 
Endure... Honor requires nothing less.

That is nice. I have a solar kit, but it's not portable. This would be great for many things. During end times you could carry this with you on scouting runs, and not have to worry about your essential items dying on you. Items such as walkie talkies would greatly benefit from something like this. Nice find!
Stay informed, information is our first line of defense!

Aldwin, welcome to the Town Hall!
Thanks for your post and the idea. A solar battery charger! Methinks I will add this to the over-all Survival List. (One of the Topics here.)
Keep On Keepin' On,

Aldwyn that does look like a nice compact unit.
