Taking tunes on the go is all fun and games until you run out of battery power. There are no outlets at the beach, people! That’s why something like Eton’s Solar-Powered Sound System is so cool. You don’t need to worry about outlets, extension cords, and a bag full of bulky batteries. Instead, this unit uses the awesome power of the sun to deliver its audio goodies.
With spring and summer looming, you may want to take advantage of Woot’s deal on this portable player. For today, the website has the Eton Solar-Powered Sound System listed for a mere $69.99. You’ll have to pay an extra $5 to ship it, but this discount is about $130 off the list price.
The Eton Solar-Powered Sound System works with the iPod or iPhone. Just dock that portable and not only does it play back music, but it gets power from the sun to do so. It also has a splashguard in case your fun in the sun includes water close by.
Once you head in for the day, the system does include an AC adapter, which can charge the internal battery for up to four hours of use without the sun’s help.
Since this is a Woot deal, we’re expecting it to be gone after today (Wednesday, March 14, 2012). If you’re interested though, you’d better move fast. A lot of Woot deals often sell out!
