    I am going to be frequenting some places this summer that has very poor cell phone coverage and plugging in a conventional charger or even vehicle charger may not be an option. I found some hand crank chargers online. Don't laugh...they exist. Does anyone see any issues with something like this. Most promise about one minute of cranking gives you five mins of talk time. Any input is well apreciated. Thanks.

    Have you looked into a Mophie juice pack or a solar charger??

    I have looked into those. I think the solar charger might be too slow in an emergency.

    A solar charger would be no worse than a car charger.

    And I think I've seen some solar chargers that can store up the energy from the sun while it's not connected to your phone, so that when you plug your phone in, it can recharge your phone as if it were a battery. (It doesn't have to recharge your phone from solar power.)

    Really?? That's something to definately look in to. Does anyone know if any of these chargers are harmful for the IPhone?
