AD 80 Solar Radio

Avid music listeners who believe Apple's iPod recycling program is still not environmentally friendly can now listen to a similarly-styled player that reduces almost all the waste normally caused by these devices. French online store Singulier is listing the AD 80 Solar Radio, a silver-and-white AM/FM receiver that uses a large solar panel to recharge its internal battery while in sunlight. As a fallback, the AD 80 can also use a single AAA battery for power at night or indoors. No digital storage is included, though for 29 Euros this radio is inexpensive enough to import to North America as a demonstration of social conscience.
