Neat concept. I went another route. I bought Motorola 2-way radios that not only could use the recharger it came with, but you could place 3 AA batteries into it. This got me thinking. So I bought a solar recharger that charges 4 AA,AAA,C,and D rechargeable batteries. It might not have a solar panel on the radio, but I thought it was a nifty way to keep them charged if the SHTF and there was no power for an extended time.
