FreeLoader 8.0 Portable Solar Charger is a compact smart looking device that absorbs solar energy and converts it to power for your iPhones or any gadget that you might be using.
According to the makers:
“Freeloader takes power from its solar panels or via a supplied charge cable that plugs into a computers’ USB. Once charged, Freeloaders internal battery can power an iPod for 18hours, a mobile phone for 44 hours, PSP for 2.5 hours a PDA for 22 hours and much much more.”
It doesn’t matter if you are in a car or traveling, this new device can charge your iPhones, camera’s or any hand held device easily.
The Freeloader comes in silver and pink, and features two small sold-away solar panels that can charge the internal battery within 5 hours. Solar Technology is selling the Freeloader 8.0 for £29.99; as of now, it is available only in the UK.
In addition to charging the iPod, the Freeloader comes with several adapters for Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, and LG phones. Nintendo DS Lite and PSP users will also be able to use the charger, and it includes several generic USB connections for other devices that can charge through USB.
Solar Technology also sells the enlarged Supercharger solar panels that reduce the Freeloader's charge time by 50-percent, which it sells for £20 (~$40).
