Ecouterre reports that the Diffus solar handbag contains a total of 100 such mini solar panels, enough to power up your cell phone even on cloudy days. As an added bonus, those solar panels also power fiber optics inside the bag, which light up when you open it up at night, helping you to locate your keys, wallet, etc.
