Phone strap doubles as solar charger

Japan's Strapya actually comes up with a useful product.

Strapya

This is a switch. Usually the products from Japan's Strapya fall squarely under the category of novelty items, ranging from the silly to the, er, exotic. But it's finally come up with something practical: a mobile phone strap with a solar charger.
