I love the concept but the price is beyond absurd. Solar cells aren’t that expensive.


There are more affortable solar battery chargers available that are sufficient for a MAC book. I purchased a solar battery charger with and apple magsafe adapter for mine here:  http://www.earthtechproducts.com/flexible-solar-panels—-portable-solar-battery-chargers.html. This company had many solar battery chargers for laptops. They also had the adapter I needed for my mac!
