    cool but..

    I am not a green freak or anything..

    Odd that this "green" charger is made from dead sheep.

    (I do wear leather shoes). But there is just something "inconsistent" about this.

    I guess using animals IS green. No non biodegradable waste...renewable resource...and lowers methane emissions.
