Sunny Jim


Whilst at Jim’s gaff, my mobile phone complained it had no juice, so I became a ‘leccy sponger and recharged it.

This reminded me that I’d intended to buy a solar recharger for my phone/iPOD/camera(Louis).

Last time I’d checked solar chargers of this type were £75-£100. Ouch !

But solar cell prices have tumbled in the last few years.

A quick cruise on Amazon and Sunny Jim was bought for £27, and delivered in 3 days.

Despite it being mid November, overcast and raining, Sunny Jim recharged my mobile in less than 30 minutes, and today recharged my iPOD in less than an hour.

Louis is stubbornly refusing to need to be recharged so I haven’t checked the time on that one out.

This despite nay-sayers telling me solar doesn’t work in the UK in November.

Now if we could only roll out solar panels on all roofs on new builds national we’d save a hell of a lot of CO2e emissions.
