I know that there are solar cell phone out there.  The solar panels are not
there to replace other charging methods, simply to augment them.

Looking at solar panels, 5v 500mA are pretty big panels.  I believe the 5v
100mA are a better option.
bad reviews)

About the heat, I'm sure it shouldn't be an issue since I hope FIC has done
enough R&D that leaving the Freerunner in the sun for moderate amounts of
time should be ok.  If we attached the solar panel behind the back cover or
perhaps make it a flap that can go over the screen to double as a screen
protector, it may work.

Just some thoughts.
