NEWEST SOLAR TECHNOLOGY THAT ACTUALLY WORKS
We have been playing all month with our new little Solio solar charging gadgets and are really impressed! Impressed enough to decide to carry a couple versions of this new small personal solar charger…that can keep your cell charged on the slopes or in your sloop (I made that one up myself being a sailing skier 🙂 !) Of the devices we have looked at the Solio Chargers are the most flexible and get the best customer reviews. Is small for its function, just a bit bigger than an iPod and similar in weight. Is simple to operate, and easy to remember how to operate! It is rugged and robust. In the past 4 years we have tried many older solar chargers and been very disappointed with their performance…but the consensus is : THE SOLIO CHARGER WORKS! Solio generates free and clean energy – immediately
CHARGE WITH THE SUN OR THE WALL OUTLET
Solio solar chargers come in 3 models for 3 different price points and markets.They are small and compact and the solar panels fan out when needed. It can charge all your products from cell phones and iPods, to digital cameras, game players, and GPS. The Solio is charged by power from the sun OR by plugging into a wall outlet. That part makes it perfect for traveling – use the sun when you can, and when you can’t, plug it in.
NO MORE BATTERIES
The Solio really does what it claims to do, and that means no more buying nasty disposable batteries. It’s a great, lightweight and will keep you talking and your tunes playing! A full charge takes about 5-7 hours of direct sunlight to keep my iPod topped up. A fully charged Solio will recharge the average phone up to two times, or give you up to 15 hours of MP3 music. Solio’s intelligent internal circuitry and Adapter Tip System lets you charge devices at about the same rate as their dedicated wall chargers.
The 3 models are
- Solio Magnesium – about $170
Engineered to meet the demands of the serious adventurer, Solio Mg edition combines the most efficient solar panels with the highest capacity battery to collect and store power.
- Solio Hybrid 1000 – about $80
Plug into the Solio Hybrid 1000. This hybrid boasts a powerful solar panel and battery in an incredibly compact and slender case, conveniently geared with a built-in rugged carabiner and cable. The Hybrid 1000 is simple to use. Just clip on, plug in, and charge up!
- Solio Classic – about $99
Solio Classic is a Hybrid because it can accept power from either the sun or the wall, storing this energy within Solio’s internal rechargeable battery. Solio will hold its charge for up to a year.
Ok….so set off on your adventures with the security of knowing you can keep in touch, and in tunes! (Thought of that one myself too 🙂 )
