Landport Unveils Solar-Powered Speakers

Feb 26, 2010
A company called Landport Japan has recently presented its new speakers that feature solar panels to make use of solar energy.

Landport did not think much about the name - it called its new device plane and clear - Solar Speakers. The solar panels are used to harvest solar energy which is stored on an onboard lithium-ion battery.

The speakers weight just 290g and you can connect them to your laptop or PC via a USB port, which can also be used to recharge the device.

Each of the built-in speakers in the device is rated at 2W. At full charge the Solar Speakers will hold for 5-8 hours of non-stop playback. There's currently no information on when the device will appear in the United States and/or Europe, but in Japan it will hit the stores in March and will be available for $ 59.
