Earth Day Gadgets: Universal Solar Cell Phone/iPod Charger
With today being Earth Day 2008 here in the United States, I thought it would be good to highlight some eco-friendly gadgets for all the gadget lovers out there who want to do their part for the environment. Doing something good for the environment doesn’t involve having to live in a mud hut, sustaining yourself off wheat grass and tofu and wearing only hemp clothing. You can be on the cutting edge of technology and still be green.
Who doesn’t own a cell phone or an MP3 player? Even my grandparents have cell phones. But these items need to be recharged on a regular basis otherwise they just turn into expensive paperweights or something you use to hold a door open. (See? Recycling!) But why not use solar technology to recharge those items that you use all the time? The Universal Solar Cell Phone/iPod Charger will allow you to do just that. From the website:
The Universal Solar Cell Phone/iPod Charger will charge your iPod and mobile phone in less than 3 hours when exposed to direct sunlight! Small, light, and extremely portable, the Universal Solar Charger Kit can fit in your pocket for easy transportation to almost anywhere.
The kit includes the Universal Solar Charge, 1 mini USB cable, 2 interchangeable iPod adapters, 5 interchangeable mobile phone adapters.
iPod Adapter compatible with: Apple iPod, iPod Shuffle, iPod nano, iPod Mini
Interchangeable mobile phone adapter compatible with: Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Siemens, Motorola, and Blackberry.
And unlike other solar charging stations I’ve seen, this one is actually somewhat affordable at only $89.99. Not bad considering it’ll recharge two of the gadgets that you use the most – at least they’re the two I use the most! So go get one and start saving the world!
