Best of The Rest
So what of other solar powered chargers that didn't make it into the top 5? For the most part these chargers offer good all-round performance, but were not iPhone specific - a lot of them are quite large with many extra attachments needed, such as the Powerpod (pictured left), for example. A little bulky, but if you need it to charge other devices too, then you might find this an ideal solution.
The i-Sun Power Charger was the only exception to this rule, as it is a neat design that was created for the iPhone as well as the iPod. This model did not make it into our top 5 list though, as many users marked it down on power - a lot of people said it wasn't powerful enough for an iPhone at all, despite its $50 price tag.
Finding the best solar charger for iPhone for you, strongly depends on if you need it to give you a full charge, or just a small boost, and of course, how much sunlight you are likely to get. Either way, there will have been an option here for you, to keep your phone going whether you are at a music festival, stranded at the airport, or camping in the great outdoors.
