i.Tech solar-powered BT headset ships
China's i.Tech has released a solar-powered Bluetooth headset, the SolarVoice 908. The built-in solar charger replenishes the battery while users are wearing or using the headset. On a full charge, the device is rated at five hours of talk time, while standby is rated at 140 hours. Other standout features of the handset include a noise-reduction feature and the ability to connect to two cellphones at the same time.
The SolarVoice 908 supports Bluetooth A2DP, allowing users to play music from their handsets as well as having phone conversations. A green LED light indicates when the solar panel is charging the device, and there is also a USB charger for backup. A dashboard cradle for the device lets users charge it using solar energy while driving.
Now shipping in China, the SolarVoice 908 costs the equivalent of $67. [via DVICE]
