Griffin Technology ( has announced the latest edition to their lineup of DriveSafe products: SmartTalk Solar, an US$69.99 hands-free, solar-charged speakerphone for smartphones.

Compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled phones, SmartTalk Solar’s motion-sensing Auto Connect links to paired smartphones as soon as you enter the car. The multipoint pairing feature allows connection of two different phones simultaneously.

SmartTalk Solar mounts to the windshield with the solar panel facing the glass, keeping the internal battery charged for extended talk time. You can answer and place calls using a single large button, or activate the smartphone’s voice command features to keep your hands on the wheel when making or receiving calls.
