Energizer's Bunny will soon have a solar panel stitched onto its furry pink body. It's bound to happen as the going and going Bunny gears up to promote Energizers line-up of solar powered flashlights. Well thought out with each device having multiple charge methods. The Energizer Solar Flashlight (MSRP $24.99) offers kinetic (via hand-crank) charging as..... [ read more ]

Electric planes are nothing new. From a toy hobbyist perspective, they've been around for a long while now. Remote control though, is a far cry from full commercial application. Still, it might (with a Grand Canyon size tub of salt) happen as personal aircraft are being showcased using electrical engines. Let me get to it. These are all fun and dandy..... [ read more ]

I never thought I'd put down the words "ecofriendly" when it came to the gasoline chugging Ford Explorer. When you think SUV excess, you think Hummer, but the Ford Explorer kicked off the mass market SUV craziness. The new 2011 Ford Explorer has been making the rounds both in traditional media and on-line blogs and news sites alike. The biggest thing..... [ read more ]

The only thing holding me back from dumping my Scion for a Volt (besides that I love my little Mosquito) is that Volt's going to be just a little out of my price range when it releases in California in 2011.

I like the idea that Hybrids and electric cars (with a few exceptions, *cough*Tesla*cough*) are still priced and available for everyone. They're a little pricey, but not Bentley pricey (nowhere near it), so I'm okay with that. Just call me jealous then, that a someone..... [ read more ]

Today is Earth Day. It's a day when you should think about our shared resouce, Mother Earth, and really start something that you can keep going to help. I'm not saying start a recycling program in your neighborhood or anything wild like that. I'm saying start small. Do a little bit that you can sustain easily and slowly build on it everyday. In about..... [ read more ]

i.Tech's Solar Charger 906 is a simple to use solar panel and re-chargeable battery combination. It sports a 1260 mAH lithium ion battery that is recharged by the Sun. Pretty cool concept. The execution is okay, but I suspect that solar chargers have some improving to do before there's mass acceptance. iTech, though, shows us it's getting there. I..... [ read more ]
