If you fancy juicing your handheld device – Blackberry, iPhone, iPod, PSP, etc – at the same rate as a wall socket but using that lovely free sunshine as a power source, then check out the solBAT II from Scosche Industries…
“The solBAT II’s lithium ion battery has a capacity of 1500mA and an output of 5V, allowing it to charge USB powered devices at the same rate as a wall charger,” said the iPod and iPhone accessories manufacturer.
The device features a windshield mount and a universal carabineer mount to “make it easy to soak up the sun’s clean energy”.
And when fully powered, it will charge a typical mobile phone twice, allowing it to act as a battery backup.
Scosche says the solBAT II works with almost any handheld device that can be charged via a USB cable and features a simple two light indicator that lets users know when it is charging from the sun or a USB cable (red), and when it is passing that stored energy to a handheld device (green).
The solBAT II is available now from Scosche.com and at select US retail locations for $29.99.
