While Samsung may be helping out the cause by offering charging stations in major airports at no cost to the traveler, you really can't rely on being able to find an open outlet nowadays. In this constantly connected world, it's not a surprise to find yourself running low on power.
That's exactly why I was stoked to find the eton solar radio + charger + flashlight all in one. Not that I'll necessarily ever use the radio or the flashlight (I might...), but I will certainly use the built-in solar panel and the hand-crank to generate renewable energy and power my cell phone when I need it. This is a compact, sleek little device perfect for travel - it has a lightweight solar powered radio that gets AM/FM, an earphone jack, LED lights, a cell phone charger and of course, rechargeable batteries that can be boosted by hand.
