Eton Soulra XL: Eco-friendly speaker dock

I think we all agree that the environment is important to protect, so it is nice to see eco-friendly iPod and iPhone accessories arrive on the scene, such as the Eton Soulra XL speaker dock featuring solar panel charging.

Eton Soulra XL solar panel charges speaker dockNow the weather here in the UK is not always on solar panels side, or for enjoying audio systems under open air, but for days like we have had recently it suits us just perfect. The fact that with the Eton Soulra XL you can just flip up the solar panel for recharging when battery is running low means that you will not have to worry about your speaker dock running out of battery while out and about enjoying yourself.

The Soulra XL features an integrated 72sq-inch solar panel that recharges the lithium-ion battery for up to five hours of playback. Inside there is a generous 8 speaker drivers, consisting of two tweeters, two woofers, and 4 passive radiators, providing a total output power of 22 watts. Not bad for a solar charged portable speaker dock.

For ease of transportation the Eton Soulra XL comes with a gel-cushioned removable carrying strap, so you can carry it around in true boombox style, perhaps blasting out some Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince ‘Summertime’ tunes.

The Soulra XL is currently available to pre-order at $300 in the US, and we are still waiting to hear on price and availability in the UK.
