Pocket Energy: The Sun Also Charges
Using a PDA to navigate while it’s connected to a GPS receiver via Bluetooth demands a lot of your batteries. Solar power is a solution many boaters are already used to, and this little product is a nice example of how it will be used even more. I highlighted a similar product, the Notepower portable solar module, a while ago.
“Folding open and close like a laptop, the charger can slurp enough power in four or five hours to fully recharge two cellular phones (or PDAs, or digital cameras, or what have you). Bic Camera intends to sell the Pocket Chargers for around $215.”
