I use my Ipod touch almost everyday to check my email, play a game, etc. but I am always charging it. I have to keep a computer on to charge it though and it wastes energy. I was thinking if there was a way to solve my dilemma. My idea was to install solar panels on the back of the Ipod and when not in use the can charge in the sun, but also keep the old way of charging if necessary. Solar panels are expensive though so I thought that the Ipod would not come with the ability to use the solar panels. The use of the panels could be bought at an appropriate price at the app store. Many may also buy this because it makes it unnecessary to have a computer to charge your Ipod. You could take practically anywhere. Hopefully my idea will become more than an idea.
