The Mini Solar Roll stretches out to a full 18 inches when gathering solar energy. When it's time to break camp, it rolls up like sushi into a small pouch. The onboard lithium-ion battery is powerful enough to recharge your phone or camera when you need it, packing a lot of talk time into a very small package. Available late February 2013.
