Battech iPower SX charger

The UK's Battech recently introduced its iPower SX solar-powered charger that will add battery life to portable consumer electronics. It stores energy captured by the sun in a high-capacity, 2,200mAh battery and is said to be capable of powering an iPod classic for 50 hours. The device is capable of charging many popular phones, including the iPhone and Nokia devices, as well as portable gaming consoles, MP3 players and cameras.

On a cloudy day or when stuck in the office, the iPower SX can also be recharged via a USB port from PCs. It also has an indicator light to show how much power is left in the device. The iPower SX uses a 5.5V, 80mA crystalline solar panel that has a 5.3V, 500mA output.

The iPower SX is now on sale in the UK, priced at the equivalent of about $62. [via Pocket-lint]

    Rogue company?

    Unfortunately battech don't seem like a reputeable company. I've had my credit card deducted, but no goods have arrived. They cannot be contacted! I've rung dozens of times, left messages, sent emails and not a single response.
