LET THE SUN SHINE: A picnic in the park sounds nice, but not with the beeping of your dying iPhone in the background.

But wait, thanks to the Surge, now you can. NovothinkSolar Surge solar charging cases let you buildup your battery with good old Mr. Sunshine’s rays. All you have to do is plop it down in direct sunlight. Plus, it works for iPod touch, and it’s Apple certified, so you know it’s good stuff. GET IT: $70. Solararcadia.com.
