i saw some at the airport on best buy vending machine but they were kinda expensive
so is there one with solar panel
and if there is one what is the best band for the buck
capacity. solar charging speed etc
somewhere in 60-150 dollar rance maybe?
The one with solar panel is a joke. You need direct sunlight and it will be charging for a day, waste of money.
You are looking for external battery. Those are inexpensive, I reviewed a ton of those (did you see a sticky at the top of the forum with all my reviews?). Or you can check out link directly from my signature.
Best one, the most popular brand on amazon hundreds/thousands of 5-star reviews, which I have reviewed is by Anker. For what you are looking, you should get the highest capacity which is also compact enough for traveling. For $50 you either get new gen Astro 3, 12000 mAh (http://www.amazon.com/12000mAh-Exter...dp/B00CEZBKTO/
) or older Astro E5, 15000 mAh (http://www.amazon.com/15000mAh-Porta...dp/B00D5T3QK4/
). Don't know what phone you have, but most likely these will be 6x-7x capacity of your phone battery. So we are talking about at least a day or so of continuous use with your phone
Read my reviews to find out which one you like better.
