This product has mixed reviews.  Some people love the Opteka BP-SC6000, some don't.  It is basically a 6000mAh backup battery for charging your gadgets (smartphone, tablet, camera, etc,).  The neat twist...

Google has just made their 16th renewable energy investment (and their third residential rooftop solar investment) by partnering with SunPower.  This deal plans to make solar affordable for the typical home owner by leasing the solar panels at a cost that is typically less than a home’s normal electricity bills.  Google has done similar deals with SolarCity and Clean Power Finance.

Two of my favorite things coming together to make the world a better place.  Solar and robotics.  The Kentrua Sun Solar Field in Israel’s Negev desert is 20 acres in size and produces 9 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year.  As you might imagine, having a large solar array in the desert means that the panels will get dusty from time-to-time. ...

This wearable solar charger/watch is currently on Kickstarter trying to become a reality.  Created by Sean Ebersold, of EnergyBionics, for those times when your phone battery needs a boost.  The design of the Carbon Wearable Solar Charger + Watch looks a bit clunky.  Not sure how that can change much with todays battery technology.  The Carbon...

Before you get excited about the Midnight Planetarium Watch let's discuss the price.  While this watch is super cool, the price tag will keep it out of most folks hands.  Ready for this?  $245,000!  Yep, for just over another $100,000 you could have a Lamborghini Aventador. The Midnight Panetarium watch was created by Van Cleef & Arpels in partnership with Christiaan van der Klaauw.  Video of this over the top watch after the break.

While the solar shower bags are handy for camping and such… they don’t hold a candle to the Road Shower.  What the heck is the Road Shower?  It isn’t just showering on the road.  It is a solar powered shower that mounts on to your existing roof rack and patiently waits until you need a hot shower. The Road Shower is made from powder coated aluminum and holds 5 gallons of water.  The Road Shower...
