Running out of juice on your phone still happens all too frequently, and not having anyway to liven it back up while you’re out adventuring can be ultimately frustrating. So, check out Danish startup infinityPV’s Heli-on portable solar charger.

The charger features a retractable solar panel that is being touted as the world’s smallest, at just 2 mm thick. The device weighs just 103 grams, and has a 2600 mAh litium-ion battery capacity that can be fully charged with just 2-3 hours of solar energy. This means that you can charge your iPhone 6 for a total of 137% of its battery power, and you can ultimately recharge it again as needed as long as you’re outdoors. When fully compacted, it’s only slightly bigger than your typical portable charger, and then you’re able to pull out the solar panel when needed. The charger is currently being funded on Kickstarter and is available now for an early backer price of $85. [Purchase]
