If the bezels or backs of smartphones were equipped with solar panels, we'd never truly be without power. Solar juice may not charge our phones to 100% battery life, but we could at least get a few extra minutes of use so we wouldn't be left totally down and out.

On the flip side, "my phone died" would never again be an acceptable excuse. - AC
