    In this era where communication can mean life or death, its not easy to survive without a phone to keep in contact with your loved ones and those who matter in case you get lost. The problem of power is obvious since your phone battery will likely run low in a matter of time. A solar charger or a solar powered mobile phone would come to the rescue here. Anyone who knows of such brands in the market?

    I know someone with a Samsung galaxy S5 solar case. It has 3800 mAh of capacity, the cover material is made from PVC and the Solar Charging rate is around 380mA, that means it will take approximately 4 to 5 hours to fully recharge the solar case battery.

    Your maths seems a bit wonky there! ten hours in theory twelve hours in reality!
    3800 divide by 380 = 10 hours! plus charging loss's!

    I keep a mobile phone for emergencies ONLY, its not used for any other purpose, consequently it stays in my pocket most of the time, I take it out once a month to see if it needs charging, it dosent usually.
