Normally, we wouldn't be interested in covering an accessory such as Amzer/Moftware's 3500 mAh Battery Backup Solar Charger ($100/$70), as it looks and feels like a cheap knock-off of the iPhone 3G, but some users might be interested in its features: a full face solar panel capable of recharging the internal 3500mAh battery inside -- enough to recharge an iPhone 2.5 times -- and a USB cable for times when the solar panel can't get the sunlight it needs. No cable is included for the iPod or iPhone to connect to its USB port; a battery life indicator button and an on-off switch are found on its sides. That crazy pricing? Amzer badges this unit with a $100 price and then sells it directly for $70. Make of that what you will.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
