PowerFilm rollable solar-powered battery charger

Didn't we talk about this, oh, 5 years ago?  It would be nice, but I bet it doesn't catch on..  We are *so* deap-rooted to the notion of bringing stinkin' batteries with us everywhere...


PowerFilm have created a roll of solar material that allows one to recharge cellphones, cars, and other rechargeable electronics with a rollable solar panel.  They’re made by Iowa Thin Film Technologies and are available in three sizes with varying power outputs.  The largest, at 12 x 73-inches, will put out 1.2 Amps and only weighs 1.9 pounds.  Available connectors include cigarette lighter, battery chargers, and daisy chain connectors.  Prices start at about $150.   MMmmm.  Sun juice.
