2006 roundup #18: Solar panels bust out all over


This year we saw solar panels hit the high street (and your clothes) and the Nano-matching black Solio from Better Energy Systems. The Solio is a first class gadget charger (to the point where Clinton gave them to delegates at his climate change summit) but this year my favourite solar charger is the Sunlinq, which rolls up like a tiny sleeping bag so you can easily carry it around as power for any gadget you like.  Comes in sheets of 6.5, 12 or 24 panels at about half a kilo per, starting at £85.  (Or you can DIY your own panels.)  [GT]
