Need to take your iPod places without a power source? Maybe you need a Solio iPod Charger. This fan-blade solar charger allows your iPod to soak up sun rays when placed in direct sunlight (either outside or affixed to a window).

The Solio also has a high capacity internal battery that stores energy and then releases it when the unit is plugged into your iPod. A fully charged Solio delivers enough energy to extend iPod playtimes by up to 9 hours. And it doesn’t take hours of charge time just to get enough juice to play one song. An hour in the sun can give your iPod up to a few hours of play time.

You can even plug the Solio into a regular wall socket to charge its battery for instant power anywhere. Not a bad idea since the Solio can store energy for more than a year. The Solio may be perfect on your next camping trip, but you may want to avoid pulling it while walking down Madison Avenue… unless you want people to mistake you for Ugly George.

The Solio is available from
