    I have a small LED flashlight on my keyring that works quite well, it gets its power from the sun or just light. Its solar panel is about 2cm by 3.5
    I assume heavy usage of a phone would be too much for just charging a phone with a small solar panel but it would be enough to keep a phone alive if necessary.
    Is this a silly idea since no cell phone maker seems to incorporate a solar panel???

    The surface area of solar energy collection space needed to generate the amount of power to charge a phone battery is much larger than any pocketable device could accommodate.

    An LED doesn't need much power.
