Eton (http://www.etonsoulra.com) has announced the Soulra, portable, solar-powered sound system for the iPod and iPhone. It contains a large solar panel and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
In addition, the battery charge indicator alerts you when you need to recharge the Soulra in direct sunlight or via an AC outlet. To provide a solution for all-weather use outdoors, the Soulra has an aluminum and rubberized body. Its case is IPX-4 splash proof and the speakers are sealed on the inside — providing protection from sand, water and other outdoor elements.
The Soulra also contains an audio line input. It’s available now in black for US$199. The Soulra comes packaged with an AC adapter, remote control and user manual.
