The Spark iPad (and other tablet) Charger

Check out what I’ve discovered.  I found a company called Voltaic that makes bags to charge your must have electronics.  For those of you that regularly carry around an iPad, mobile phone, digital camera or navigator this little beauty will charge them all using the power of the sun!

This same company also makes backpacks that can charge laptops and other various goodies! Check out Voltaic from their website. I can’t personally vouch for how well it works as I don’t own one but it looked so cool that I just had to share!
