Green Gadgets – Cool Green Gadgets For Your Daily Use
Green products seem to get the attention of most consumers these days as a lot of them become more useful and affordable. With such gizmos, not only can we reduce those carbon thingies we’re not even aware of (most of us), but also we can save a lot of money as we use them. Surely tech geeks would love this round up of stylish and eco-friendly gadgets.
Solar Powered Bluetooth Headset
If we talk about bluetooth headsets, we mean audio quality and battery hours. Major phone companies offer their own brand of accessories, but none of them get to be as green as Iqua Sun Bluetooth Headset. 50% of its exterior consists of solar panels, which directly harnesses energy from any kind of light; whether direct sunlight or from those plain incandescent lighting.
It can provide up to 9 hours of talk time with its lithium-ion battery alone. It also has additional keys for basic call functions like answering and muting calls. With its ‘unlimited’ standby time getting most of the attention from consumers, this bluetooth headset is way ahead of its competitors whether it is by performance or overall experience.
Vers 2X iPod Dock with Speaker
Finding a better stereo speaker with great audio quality and external style might be tough today considering that the good ones are quite expensive. With your $170, Vers 2x iPod Speaker offers a wooden exterior that completely complements your home.
The wooden touch adds additonal resonance compared to metal/plastic ones. Vers also said that the speaker is energy efficient. Green tech lovers would surely love this. This isn’t limited to iPods though, you can also dock your iPhone without encountering any problems.
As with all solar chargers out there, this particular one really stands out mainly because of its awesome features. It can power up any electrical device, such as your cell phone and your camera. Thanks to its solar panels, you don’t have to charge it often in outlets.
When fully charged, it can provide at most 70 hours of standby time for cell phones and a full battery for digital cameras. At its center is a button that lets you know how much power it has in its battery.
Also included in the package is a CamCaddy, an all-in-one power adapter that accepts every kind of battery. Pretty nifty don’t you think? It also has charging adapters for your PSP, Sony Ericsson phones and your iPod.
H20 Powered Alarm Clock
Although this isn’t really new, water powered clocks save you money from buying the AA batteries. Only one fill up of water will let the clock last for about 2-3 months. It can also show the date as well as the temperature. A must have product for eco-concious guys.
Solar Lite Hybrid Flashlight
You’ll never have dead batteries with this one. Solar Lite offers a spectacular flashlight that uses the sun’s energy (or even from light bulbs) to produce power. 8 hours of exposure to light will give you almost 16 long hours of ‘lighting’. It’s also shockproof and waterproof in case you drop it somewhere.
This is only the first part so be sure to check out next month’s round up of green gadgets.
