FreeLoader Solar Charger in Nigel's Eco Store

We’ve just got this great solar gadget in stock. As featured in The Independent this weekend, the FreeLoader Solar Charger is “a smart eco-friendly device that soaks up the power of the sun and stores it for up to three months, meaning you can use it to charge your electronic gadgets” such as mobiles, mp3 players, pdas and more. It can also be charged from a USB port on your PC or laptop.

In the Independent it came in the top 10 best camping gear.

It compares favourably with the Solio solar charger, but costs quite a bit less.

Get yours now from Nigel’s Eco Store.
