Expower(R) Solar Panel waterproof shockproof Charg&hellip by EXpower
4.0 out of 5 stars Green charging, 27 July 2014
A rather nice solar charger in an eye-catching shade of green that means it is unlikely to get lost at the bottom of your rucksack, if offers the potential that you can recharge itís reserves whilst you are out and aboutÖ as well as your other gadgets.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sticky stuff for phones, 27 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The goo.ey skin provides a bit of protection for the rear of your phone (not the corners or edges), as well as adding a welcome splash of colour and a pleasantly soft surface. Adhesion to the phone proved to be resilient to the knocks youíd expect from day to day use and being placed into pockets or bags and it is supposedly thin enough that the phone can still be placed into another case for added protection (that will depend on how snugly fitting your existing case is as the pairing of phone and skin wouldnít go back in my case). I found that the skin did also stick to my existing case, although the desirability of this will depend on individual taste and your colour scheme… Read more
