FreeLoader makes it easier to be green


There is a big emphasis on going green these days and why not? Being wasteful simply doesn't make sense. Here is an interesting item that could actually help you go green and make your life easier in the process. It's the FreeLoader.

The device uses a solar cell to charge its battery that can then be used to power other devices or charge them. Although from what I've read the system takes quite a while (several hours in the sun) to charge itself completely, it's still using free solar energy to do so. 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 (according to a site that sells the device).

It's available online for about $60. Definitely an interesting idea.
