Solar case charges 20 phones at a time

For the ultimate cell phone addicts.

Strapya

Long ago Crave made a plea for for solar chargers that wouldn't induce hernias and, thankfully, more than a few manufacturers have answered that call . But now Strapya, which offers a keychain-size version of its own, is going in the other direction with a 22-pound beast called the "Sola Unagi Solar Generator."

Strapya

Developed by Fuji Technologies (PDF), this mega-charger that can purportedly power as many as 20 mobile phones at a time, according to Red Ferret. It would be the perfect accessory for the kind of phone junkies who are so addicted that they embed microphones in their teeth .

We're not sure about the name, however, as unagi means freshwater eel in Japanese. Maybe it has something to do with electric eels instead.
