Freeloader Pico – take the slow train to charge-ville and I’ll meet you at the station…

Freeloaderpico

The Freeloader Pico is small, delicate and iPodyish, but it’ll take you 10 hours to charge its internal battery, which could be a tad too long if it’s an emergency call you’re wanting. Still, it’s nice to know there’s a solar fall back if the USB recharger part fails you in the desert. For some reason. $39.99.

 # Compact and lightweight solar charger for small electronic devices # Advanced solar cell and lithium ion battery technology # Solar panels will charge its internal battery in as little as 10 hours # If you’re lazy or pressed for time, you can charge the Pico’s internal battery via USB # Delivers its charge to your cell phone, iPod, or GPS in just 30 minutes # Provides up to: * 35 hours on mobile phone * 14 hours on iPod * 1.5 hours on GPS

  • Those power times sound a bit inflated for 800mAh battery. I'm thinking they calculated them the same way manufacturers calculate laptop battery times (brightness all the say down, system running just about standby, not real-world active use).
