Look for the official product announcement from Energizer at CES 2009. The talk on the street is that it will:
- feature a USB-out port to power other devices (since some cell phones, cameras, and GPS units have USB plugs, like most iPods for example);
- can be charged from an AC wall outlet in addition to the sun;
- and is weatherproof to withstand the elements.
Look for it to be out on your local store shelves by summer 2009 with a suggested retail price of around $50 bucks with 2 AA rechargeable batteries included.
