I found this video on metacafe and it works nicely and you can't beat the price. I'm sure some of you can come up with an even better design. :D

That'll be helpful, big time. I'll use that for my Pocket PC and all too, schwing!

This is a very useful video. I have almost everything except the old garden lights, time to go tale sale hunting.

Think you could charge multiple things at once with a USB hub? Probably won't be too effective though...

And you can always add more panels? or just make a separate set?

I wouldn't spend too much though because it seems they are getting cheaper (http://cgi.ebay.com/Solar-Charger-SC002-SK-for-cell-phones-ipods-and-more_W0QQitemZ260170158553QQihZ016QQcategoryZ48618 QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) every day but this set is a little less powerful than the homemade.
