Some of us are green, some of us are forgetful. Some of us are a little of both. We really like the idea of the Solar Recycled Messenger Bag ($229) because it will actually charge our cell phones, iPads, PDAs, GPSs, iPods, cameras, and other handheld electronics when we forget to. Just in case you're not related to MacGyver, we'll tell you how it works. The bag soaks up the rays of the sun, charging an interior battery pack with energy that is stored until you need it. And we're not talking a few minutes energy. Fully charged, it will provide you with up to 19 hours of talk time or 48 hours of music playback. There's even an indicator light on the logo that shows you when the panels are generating a charge.
