EcoCharge

EcoCharge is an inexpensive app claims to be good for the environment, but the consensus here at the Green Blizzard headquarter is we are perplexed on how it’s environmentally friendly.

Given the value-add and power of many apps now in their second and third generation, its value is not impressive.

EcoCharge does have a few delightful screen shots of your battery and indications of how many video, audio, and standby minutes remain on your current battery charge.

We think that the environmental claim would be legit it EcoCharge was matched up with one of these solar phone recharges. These can give the phone a charge boost but to fully recharge takes a few days of constant sunlight.

Unless you’re camping and have 3 sunny days in a row, forget it. But for the backup and novelty sake consider either:

Poweradd Apollo Portable Charger

or

New Trent USB Port External Battery Charger/Power Pack for Smartphones

or

SolarAid Portable Solar Charging Kit
