Scosche solar BT speaker

Scosche on Tuesday announced the release of a Bluetooth phone speaker that gets energy for its lithium ion battery from a solar panel. The device, called solCHAT, has integrated voice technology that speaks out the names or numbers of incoming calls. The digital voice also talks users through the initial set-up process when pairing up compatible phones or other devices. Once set up, the solCHAT will automatically pair with users' phones when they are in range and set up for the sync. When phones are out of range, the device automatically powers down to save its battery life.

The solCHAT ships with a USB cable and car adapter for powering it when the sun is down or behind cloud cover. A windshield suction cup mount and sun visor clip are also included in the bundle, which retails for nearly $100.
