Energizer Solar ChargerIf are like me and have seriously tried to work on a plan on how to attach a small inflatable dingy to your kayak to carry your electronic gadgets without looking like a sissy, then you will be interested in the new Energizer Solar Recharger.

Solar rechargers have been out for sometime now in various ranges of prices and quality but this seems like a real winner as it can recharge either AA or AAA batteries out on trip as well as recharge virtually any USB connected electronic device including iPods.

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.

Energizer Solar ChargerLook 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.
