Solio: a device to power any gadget with the sun

“The world has gone mobile, but power hasn’t gone mobile,” explains Better Energy Systems co-founder Lorenzo Falzarano. “A lot of people don’t think there’s anything wrong with their portable energy they just run out of power. We have a solution for that.”

Their device is called the Solio ($79.99 or $99.99) and it’s a universal charger, which means it can charge any handheld device- phone -iPhone included-, iPod or similar, even a small laptop (it comes with adaptors for different devices).

What kind of talk time can you get from the sun? 1 hour of sunlight = 1 hour on standby or 15 minutes of talk. In this video, Falzarano shows us how it works.
