That is, unless you have a solar charger like the Solio Mg. This handy little scamp converts solar rays into juice or, if you prefer, charges up from the mains.</p> <p>The new Mg edition improves on the first Solio by adding a magnesium alloy casing. This gives it extra strength without adding weight, and earns it more style points into the bargain. </p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £100.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Reengineered for explorers, the tough Mg edition charger will keep your gadgets running on pure sunshine </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/solio-hybrid-mg-edition </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/solio-hybrid-mg-edition/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/solio-hybrid-mg-edition/review#comments Geek accessories Hybrid Mg edition Solio Wed, 01 Oct 2008 05:00:00 +0000 Simon Osborne-Walker 10983 at http://www.stuff.tv Solio Solar Charger http://www.stuff.tv/solar-charger/solio-solar-charger/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> There’s no need for your camping trip to be totally gadget-free – the Solio will breath life back into flat mobiles and more </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1280" height="854" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/SOLIO-CLASSIC__94632_zoom_0.jpg?1364300389" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Don’t get us wrong, we think trees are great – but we’ll be damned if we’ve ever found one with a mains socket for our MP3 player.</p> <p>Trees cleverly get their energy from the blazing battery in the sky, and so can your gadgets thanks to the Solio.
