Solar charger (phones/i-pods etc..) Green issues etc..

I recently bought one of these:

http://www.solio.com/charger/

on my way back from the UK. Was about 35 and works well (Came with a limited selection of adaptors though). There are many other simular devices around and coming to the market.

This one has a built-in Litium battery which once charged can directly charge your device and/or via the sun. Works with most phones, i-pod, and organisers.....

One way to try and do my bit and reduce my energy consumption.

I'd like to find other Solar devices, in the home there are so many chargers and/or small devices that are powered on 24/7, would be nice if some of these could also run off solar power. All my chargers are plugged into a bank of plugs each one with a switch so it can be turned off when not in use (you can get these from Jumbo etc..)

Found a solar 'auto' Lawn mower, but these cost several thousand at the moment (otherwise I'd get one).

Anyone have any other good ways to become more energy efficient?

I don't normally travel to the UK, this was the first time in years, too busy doing things locally

But I think a family funeral is justification to make the trip.
