Introduce Your Kids Green Vehicle With 7 in 1 Rechargeable Solar Transformers Kit

For folks who grew up in before the internet became an everyday necessity, model making and make believe games were all the rage. We could conjure toys out of empty cartons, cardboard boxes, cans of soup and anything that would make a noise or resemble a car or an aeroplane. The kids who grew up with the internet, sadly never got to experience the thrill of pretending that a cardboard box can be a house or that an empty matchbox can be a remote control that can turn younger siblings into command-obeying zombie-robots! But all hope is not lost for the parent who wants his kid to experience the thrill of make believe games while teaching them a valuable lesson about how renewable energy works thanks to this 7 in 1 Solar Transformers kit.

The kit basically features a snap together plastic components, a solar panel and a battery station. The components can be snapped together to firm two power charging stations- one solar charging station and a battery charging station- and five type of vehicles including a concept race car, a dump truck, a bulldozer, a concept roadster and a solar car. Kids can either play with one type of vehicle or transform them as and when required and create their own Transformers style plays. The 7 in1 Rechargeable Solar Transformers can be charged via an AC outlet in around 5 seconds or via the solar panel that takes around 120 seconds to fully back up the battery. Unfortunately the battery lasts only for about a maximum of 80 seconds which might be a bit of a problem for modern kids with instant gratification needs.

On the plus side, the kid allows children to exercise their creativity and imagination and learn how to make models and how renewable energy can be used in everyday life. If the kit is able to get your kid away from his MMORPG even for a single Sunday afternoon, we’d say it would be totally worth the $19.99 that you spend on it.

Portable Wireless Solar Powered Loudspeaker

Going outdoor is one of my routine weekend activity. Usually I bring iPod to listen my favorite musics through tiny earbug. But this time, I want to try my new Honeywell solar wireless speaker’s delivering music ability which I bought two day before for $299,9 from amazon.

Setting up the Honeywell speaker doesn’t need special skill or engineer capability. It’s about as easy as it gets. After putting my iPod into the dock and turning it on, the system automatically connects and starts working.

I was at 80-feet away from the loudspeaker and the wireless data stream can easily go through windows and walls. But, it seems that at close range, the unit suffers from occasional clicks and pops.

It won’t satisfy serious audiophiles, but the sound is surprisingly clear and rich. On the downside, it lacks stereo playback. Because the high-frequency audio is aimed upwards while the lower frequencies go down, the sound is well mixed and lively.
The loudspeaker is equipped with 2,000 mAh NiMH battery. It took a whole summer day to give the battery a full charge. There’s a cryptic battery gauge that shows the charge level that uses the system’s single LED light. But make sure that you have the manual with you because it’s hard to remember.

In its full charged, the loudspeaker can play music for 6 hours and 40 minutes at moderate volume. On the other hand, while you can easily turn the dock off, the speaker has no on-off switch.

For me, the Honeywell solar speaker is a great way to mix two of my favorite things: music and fun in the sun.

Kraftwerk : Charger Powered By Fuel Cell

There are various brands of batteries that are useful for charging mobile devices off-the-grid, two of which are iCruiser and ALLPOWER. But both still have drawbacks. You must not far away from power for a certain period of time, if using iCruiser or devices by similar functions. If using ALLPOWER, you will worry about whether or not enough sunlight to ALLPOWER or devices by similar functions.

Another option might be a viable alternative in the future is created by Kraftwerk which brings the power of a fuel cell prototype packs for USB-powered devices.

Kraftwerk is taken from the German for “power plant”. The device works on the gas canisters and promised to charge your iPhone up to 11 times before needing a refill.

Here’s how these devices work, gas canisters, like we usually use to refill butane lighter or used in camping stoves, used to fill the internal tank. After the tank is full, thanks to the fuel cell system in it, it can be directly used to recharge mobile gadgets. Kraftwerk will notify its users if the gas in the tank is decreased by the LED system. Although promoted as a new technology in Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for production, Kraftwerk working principle is similar to the technology offered Lilliputian Systems Inc.
