Nice idea but don't dismiss the old hand winder/generator things. Those work in the dark!

Get a Mophie!

I had this problem with my iPhone 5! It would just die so much that I wished I got an iPhone 4 instead. But, I looked into solar and other forms of power. I have to say that Mophie is the best choice. It gives you about 85% more power and gets me through the day.

My only beef is that it's a bit heavy and you need a special chord for the headphone jack.

I am thinking about buying a 3 in 1 charger from CougarSolar that looks great but shipping is $50, ugh. Do you think it's worth it?

Get an iSmooth dual car charger

The iSmooth dual car charger or dual wall chargers are awesome. I always listen to my mp3 player and charge my phone in my car (I simultaneous charge them both). They are cheap and shipping (in the U.S.) is either free or less than $5.00.

Good point about Mophie covers - they provide additional charge for your battery.
