Energizer Getting in on the Solar Battery Game

We stopped reporting on solar battery chargers a while back. It just seemed to me like a sub-optimal use of solar technology. I mean, for the most part, the panel sits around doing nothing. And it's not like battery charging uses a really significant amount of the www.celebratinglife.org world's energy (though it's certainly growing.)

But for those of you who have your hearts set on www.peseta.org charging your batteries with the sun, the big guns have just joined the game. Energizer, who employs a bunny that is, apparently, fusion powered, is debuting a solar battery charger at CES in January.

The device will power charge AA or AAA batteries, and has a USB port for charging cellphones and we like it buy real viagra iPods and the like. The weather-proof design hints at it's true use, charging up while beyond the reach of civilization.

Because, really, what's the use of back country hiking if you can't watch youtube videos on your iPhone while you're out there.

To be honest, as an archaeologist-in-training who interacts regularly with all sorts of canadian pharmacy cialis prescription earth and human sciences, devices like this are brilliant for charging our equipmment. Or for emergency services in less developed countries, who often rely upon very suboptimal equipment and often no electricity to provide early warning services.

I'm upset that you see these things as not valid enough to zvezdegranda.rs warrant articles on solar or self-powered gadgets more often, and that you feel that the only market for solar-energy gadgets is that of youtube users and weekend hiking trips.

As a counterpoint, I find the predominance of luxury car coverage here frustrating, dull and in my mind detracting from the the best choice lowest price for viagra more useful articles that I initially came to appreciate this site for.

The only thing I like of this that I haven't seen on other similar products, is that it seems the panel can be positioned to face the sun, rather than just have to be at the same angle as the ground the panel is resting on.

And although it doesn't produce much power, I'd still like to see the ability to plug this (and similar products) in to the cheap cialis on line mains, to give more renewable energy to wow look it cialis generic brand the grid, when not charging batteries.

And the moment, I'm much more in favor of wind-up products, than solar-powered product (I had to use my wind-up-power torch 3 times last night, if it was solar powered, I would have been in trouble).

So cyclists don't matter?

I find it surprising that you wouldn't report on advances in this area. Having a cellphone or batteries for the MP3 player or lights recharge as you ride is, in my view, a fine application of solar technology. Even better to have batteries recharge while the bike is legal pharmacy online parked.

What it seems to be missing is a secure anchor point.

On the general energy saving question, you are likely ignoring the problem of vampire power. As much as we preach plugging AC/DC transformers into a power strip and turning it off when not in use, a lot of viagra cheap people are still going to leave them plugged in drawing power all the time, even when the device only draws power for a handful of hours each week.

I showed this to my girlfriend, and she immediately said "that would be awesome for charging my iPod while laying out at the pool." I think there are tons of similar little uses for this gadget.

Why write about a solar charger if you're going to poo-poo it's usefulness? As a bike tourer, I found a solar charger to be great help to charge my iphone, which I used to www.americanfoods.com blog, take pictures, and keep in touch with friends and approved cialis fda family. The only problem was the charger I brought with me was big and inefficient. It's nice to see major companies getting into the market and hopefully this will lead to advancements in the panaceahealthsolutions.com solar world soon.
