Energizer to Release Portable Solar Battery Charger

December 19th, 2008 by  


GoodCleanTech reports that Energizer plans on debuting its portable solar-powered AA and AAA battery charger at January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The slick-looking gadget is completely weatherproof and comes with a USB port to power electronics.

Energizer’s device can also be charged from an AC outlet just in case the sun lets you down.

The company plans on releasing the charger this summer for $49.99— not a bad price for freedom from wall outlets.
