Weather-resistant and rugged enough for any backcountry condition or activity, the solar panel boldly goes with you anywhere. And the Switch 8 puts the sleek and sexy into solar power, with its slim, light design and efficient powering capabilities. Now there's no reason to send smoke signals, read tree bark, or sing lame songs no one can dance to; recharge your cellphone, GPS, flashlight, or audio player for safe, civilized travel.
