is a solar-powered iPod charger that you can use to give your iPod
(or phone, or PDA) some more juice when an outlet isn't available (we first took at look at the Solio in November of '04
). With the iPod
connected and the solar fans unfurled, the Solio will give your iPod one hour of life per hour of charge. Plus, if your
iPod is completely flatlined, you can run it off of the Solio via a stored charge. It's now available in black for those
of you concerned with matching your accessories. It costs $100US.
