Made for iPod?!? Who wants to be listening to an iPod when you're out in the wilderness?

I have seen solar backpacks before as well as solar AA battery chargers. The only things I have with me that require power are my camera, GPS receiver and hand-held radio station. I have two batteries for the camera, and can get probably 500-600 pictures out of that -- a number I'd never hit unless I was out for a week or so. I don't use rechargables in the GPS receiver -- I carry extra lithium batteries for that. The weather station uses a small button battery that lasts for a couple years. So, a solar backpack wouldn't do me any good.
