Personally I am holding out for the Mophie juice pack to take care of my iPhone 3G battery shortcomings, but this latest option has something nice going for it. The solar powered gadget offers the ability to charge and protect your iPhone 3G at the same time.
The flip style charger has a high capacity 1500mAh battery which will let you charge from a solar source and store the power for when your phone needs it most.
The charger features a removable belt clip, and also has a miniUSB cable that will allow you to charge it from a PC when a good solar source is not available. The device itself can pick up a charge in just about 3 hours.
