We have missed the release date of this cool Kodak Solar charger last month. Kodak Solar charger is nearly an ‘universal charger’ because the solar charger works with almost any kind of gadgets you have. This including digital camera, PMP, cell phones, iPods and many more.
The Kodak has two slots for two rechargeable AA batteries to fit in. The device will browse power from sun to the dime desk lamp light source and store the power to the battery. You can even connect it to your PC via the USB port to charge it up.
Here is the detail Press Release of Kodak Solar Charger:
