Top Solar-Powered Emergency Gadgets
We're not all doom and gloom here at Switched, but we do like being prepared, so when we saw a great round-up of emergency products that generate their own power, we couldn't resist a closer look. The folks at Unplggd have put together a list of top-notch solar powered gadgets that could keep you going when you're on the, um, go.
Here are some of our favorites from the list:
The Crank It Up! Dynamo Solar Radio has both a hand crank (old fashioned style) and solar power, so you can tune in to news when you need it, even without batteries or a power outlet.
Ignore the contradiction in the name of the Solar Flashlight, which drinks up power during the day so you can use the device to light your way at night. It also has a compass.
We were also intrigued by Innergy Power's Emergency Solar Power Kit, which stores power so you can plug in a cell phone, laptop or other device. [Source: Unplggd]
