Green power for gadgets

Better Energy Systems today unveiled the Solio Hybrid1000, the latest addition to the company's expanding collection of easy-to-use renewable energy products that provides portable gadget users with renewable, green energy. The device powers most mobile devices without relying on conventional power sources by combining a high efficiency solar panel with a large capacity integrated Lithium-Ion battery. Housed in a rugged waterproof case, the Hybrid1000 features a built-in output cable as well as a variety of different tips to power a wide array of portable electronics including cellular phones, PDAs, msuic players, digital cameras, and more. The Hybrid1000 is priced at $80 and includes a carabineer clip handle for easy carrying.

The Hybrid1000 is also a carbon neutral designed with a cradle-to-cradle approach to minimize waste as well as pollution, and supports hybrid charging to provide power via the sun or plug into the USB port of any computer to recharge the internal battery. What's more, Better Energy Systems says it plans to support renewable energy projects in Africa to offset the CO2 created by the production of the Hybrid1000.
