Solio Hybrid Solar Chargers

Better Energy Systems is expanding its line of Solio Hybrid / Solar Chargers.

These combine a high efficiency solar panel with a large capacity integrated battery -- so you can leave the panel charging in your room, and then top off your portable devices when you return.

The Solio chargers combine:
- Universal charger - With interchangeable tips for portable devices (including USB and Mini-USB)
- Stores power - Internal battery stores power for up to 1 year (1 hour of sun = 15 min. talk time or 40 min. of MP3 music)
- Hybrid charger - Recharge through solar panel, plus wall power or USB port

The Solio Classic ($99) unfolds with three panels, and includes a suction cup to attach to a window. The battery is 3.6 volts, 1600 mAh -- A fully charged unit is rated to recharge a typical mobile phone up to two times, or deliver up to 15 hours of MP3 music.

The Solio Hybrid 1000 ($79, due next month) is designed for more rugged use, with a carabiner-clip handle. The battery is 3.7 volts, 1000 mAh -- A fully charged unit recharges a mobile phone once, or delivers 10 hours of music.
