    Hi everybody. I need your help. I have a netbook Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3c. Can i use a solar charger such this: http://dx.com/p/ft-2600-universal-3-7v-2600mah-li-ion-rechargeable-battery-solar-power-bank-w-led-black-283664#.Ux6aB859KbQ

    unlikely, first the voltage issue, most laptops need about ~16-19v to charge, this is just 3.7/5v, second, the capacity, even if your laptop could be charged via usb, this may not provide enough current to start charging, laptops need about 3-5A to charge, and a typical laptop battery is around 36-50wh, even if it did charge it would take weeks of full sunshine to fully charge it! you need a much larger solar array.
    Resistance is futile-give in to DX gadget craving!
    also a voluntary mod-be nice please!
