If you own an iPod Touch 2G (that’s the most recent model available on the market) then you can forget about charging your gadget by plugging it in as the Sun will do that. In an attempt to go green, Apple has approved the first solar charger for the iPod Touch called Solar Surge. The solar charged is manufactured by Novothink, and it will be available in the next few weeks for a price of $69.99. If you aren’t at home, and you have a dead battery, then put your iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPod Touch into the Solar Surge which will charge your device using sunlight.
The Solar Surge comes packed with a solar panel back, and with four LEDs that will let you know if there is enough sunlight to to charge your device. The LEDs will also show how much power there is left, and if all of them are green, then the Solar Surge is 100% charged. If the Solar Surge is pointed at the Sun, but you haven’t plugged in your iPhone / iPod Touch then it will store the power into a built-in battery.
Not bad for a first, and the good thing is that you can choose between various colors including Black, Blue, Green, and Pink. A new iPod Touch is due to be released at the Apple iPod Event, and you might as well never charge it. You can use the Solar Surge which (like said) costs only $69.99. Sounds great, right?
