  1. Vicky Hannigan says:

    I love hiking but I am new to backpacking- first time last weekend in Ocala National Forest, and this little device would be helpful in more ways than one, especially for emergencies. I think I need it, I know I want it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Porty says:

    I would be the envy of all my hiking buddies!
    And my answer to them? “Ya gots to know the Hiking Lady!”

  3. Grekowic says:

    Planning a trip in high Sierra next summer. How awesome and prepared will I be if I win this solar charger. My iphone will be SO happy! Very cool invention.

  4. Joel Swan says:

    With Florida being the stomping ground of future hurricanes this year, if the power goes out, I need to charge my iPhone somehow!?! This is the solution!

  5. Lisa says:

    I NEED one of these!! Almost got lost in the Uintas last week while hiking… took a wrong turn :/ and my phone battery had died :/

  6. sarah says:

    While this is awsome for the obvious reasons, emergencies while on the trail, camping, or paddling! im pretty sure the best reason to have this would be the endless hours of annoying my co-workers whith my sporatic music selection, no more will they rejoyce when my battery runs out! muahahaha

  7. Refugio lopez says:

    Currently deployed to Afghanistan this is perfect for long convoys! My iPhone usually doesn’t make all day this would definitely keep it charge while on patrol! Or on guard duty! Thank you hiking lady! Greeting from Afghanistan!!

  8. DC says:

    I am starting a 400+mile bike ride across country in September and I use my iPhone (mounted on my handlebars) for EVERYTHING when I’m Cycling on the road (GPS, routes, music, contact, ride/weather updates) but I’ve always had trouble keeping it charged while on my long journeys. This is the answer for all my iPhone charging problems! Thanks Hiking Lady for this great chance to win such a precious piece of technology!

  9. Julie says:

    My husband is a boy scout leader and could definitely use this for his trek leading excursions. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Nick Hall says:

    This could be a vital piece of kit in a survival situation. In fact, if I dont win, I’ll buy one!

  11. Devin DENMAN says:

    1) I left my job for a more adventurous life camping/on the road!
    2) Finding power outlets is very time consuming when surrounded by forest:)
    3) Leaving for the John Muir Trail in one week.. this will ensure awesome blog posts!

  12. Laurie says:

    Need this for my international hiking trips which would make powering up so much easier and ecofriendly!

  13. Sylvia says:

    If I had the Solar iCharge then I could keep using the RunKeeper app (for tracking route/distance/elevation gain/calories burned) for very long hikes! Right now my battery runs out after about 4 hours. Would love to be able to track longer hikes – thank you!

  14. Karen Christy says:

    Enter Me!!! I don’t have an iphone but my daughter and son-in-law both do!! This would be perfect for them… and he can take it along when he is deployed!!

  15. Michele says:

    Hi! 2 years late but thank you for your hiking step tutorial…. Saved my hiney when we went to the G. Canyon. I thought I had trained well, but holy heck…. I wouldn’t have survived without practicing that. Couldn’t walk the next day ๐Ÿ™‚ but it was my adventure of a lifetime!

  16. Michele says:

    This would offer me a little peace on the trail. Knowing I might be able to use my phone on a peak or get a map.

  17. Danielle Lyndon says:

    I would be more confident and assurred as a hiker because my phone would be charged all the time to provide me with 24/7 access to help if I needed it. I like Hiking Lady because it provides a woman’s perspective to all things hiking and most blogs are by men. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  18. Maggie says:

    I’ve been thinking about trying a solar charger. I have a Zagg I use for traveling, but it weighs a hundred pounds (ok maybe a little exaggeration :). Looks awesome & would look even more awesome on my iPhone!!

  19. Hannah says:

    I could really use this neat gadget, planning a pre-hiking trip soon, before my fiance and I go for a long trip through Alaska for our honeymoon! its been in the making for years, and this little helper would make everything that much easier!

    fingers crossed!

  20. I could really use the Solar iCharge to Stay Powered on or off trail because I am a childcare provider, and cannot afford to be without my phone in the event of emergency. Because of this fact, I also have thousands of Facebook/social media friends I can share the benefits of this device with!;)

  21. Summer Littlejohn says:

    As a Girl Scout staff member, I would love the iCharge! It would a great way to teach Girl Scouts about solar power! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Angel says:

    Wow, that’s Awesome! not just for hiking, but all the time! I work outside a lot and my phone is always dying on me! why didn’t i ever think of a solar charger?

  23. Debbie S says:

    Gearing up for some major trekking. Thanks for your site, the Solar iCharge info and this contest!

  24. Terry H says:

    I didn’t get the GPS gene when I was born, hence I lose my jeep on parking lots and get confused when hiking poorly marked trails. Just yesterday I used the map feature on my phone to figure out where I was after making a wrong turn. Using my phone map increases my safety on the trail. Having a solar charger would be awesome!

  25. Lovena H. says:

    The portability of this charger would def be handy to have on trail while hiking, on the cliffside rock climbing, or on frozen waterfalls while ice climbing! Thanks for the the contest Hiking Lady!

  26. Ben L. says:

    This is fantastic, thank you Hiking Lady for this great contest! I’ve always wanted to be able to use my iPhone compass on the trail just for fun, and now it can be done. Huzzah!

  27. Arlene T. says:

    OMG, that is So Cool, I “Must Have” this Solar iCharge because I use my iPhone a lot to take pics, Twitter, & FB!

    Hiking Lady is the BEST, I love the Blog!

  28. Sherry says:

    Yes, I too would love this solar charger. I mostly use my iPhone to make tracks. I love hiking & being around nature even if it’s only in my own backyard.

  29. Bob Ramsey says:

    This would be pretty cool to have while out on the trail. I take a lot of photos with my iPhone, and this would really help extend the life of the phone, and then maybe help me save my own life or somebody else needed something. Solvitur-ambulando.

  30. Charisse says:

    This is awesome! I would love a Solar iCharge for when I’m out hiking, backpacking and/or camping with my sons & their Boy Scout Troop. Thanks!!

  31. Beth Ramsey says:

    This would be great while we are out and on the trail. I’m constantly looking for ways to extend the life of my iPhone.

  32. Debbie says:

    I am an volunteer Search and Rescue K9 Handler everything comes out of my own pocket for training. Would love to have this in my pack for searches for me and my K9.

  33. Tracey Walters says:

    This would make my hikes complete!! I could post all the awesome hiking pics as I take them!!!!Please please please pick me!!!!’

  34. Jamie says:

    I just borrowed a friend’s solar charger and it helped me get to my email and to a job offer while I was sea kayaking in Maine!

  35. Crystal says:

    What a great product to have to be able to stay connected while on multiday outings where you don’t have access to a traditional wall outlet.

  36. C. T. Hinson says:

    I’m a member of a totally volunteer Search and Rescue organization (501(c)3), and this would be a really valuable addition to my backpack in emergency situations when run-down batteries could contribute to critical outcomes. Thanks for the chance to enter this contest.

  37. Dodgerfan says:

    The Solar iCharge case could certainly brighten up my day!
    Please entr me in the contest too!

    Thanks much
