Here’s another product we’re looking forward to seeing at Outdoor Retailer. The Fuse has a lot more capacity than many of the chargers we’ve seen, and looks to be ideal for cyclists as well as campers. With a 10,600mAh battery, the Fuse may turn out to be the perfect companion for bike touring.
Voltaic Introduces the Fuse 9W Solar Charger
