Voltaic Solar Backpack

The backpack also comes with 11 common charging tips to fit a wide variety of portable electronics, including many MP3 players, cell phones and iPods. The backpack also features a 2,200mAh Li-Ion battery pack, with three voltage settings to store solar power. It also includes a wall adapter and car charger to charge the battery when there's no sun available, and a cigarette power adapter into which you can plug the cigarette power cord of any device. The empty backpack weighs only 3.5 lbs.

Best known for their low-priced DVD players, Apex Digital offers the E2go MP-2000 - a Personal Media Player with the ability to record and encode non copy-protected video from a standard video source (such as a VCR PVR, DVD and Camcorder ), record voice notes, play back images as a slide show with audio, and to output video to a standard TV via an "AV out" connection. Road warriors, train commuters and carpoolers can use the E2go’s recording capabilities to catch up on their TV viewing. Think of it as an iPod with video.

You can use the E2go MP-2000 to record, store and playback up to 80 hours of video, 5000 songs or over 200,000 still images (depending on compression) all right in a device slightly larger than a PDA. It features a 20 GB, 1.8" hard disc drive to minimize weight, noise and heat generation and a 3.5" LCD screen to deliver crisp images. You can listen to content through any stereo earphones or the E2go’s built-in speaker.

The E2go can store and playback numerous audio, video and images file types, including: MP3, .WAV, and .WMA audio; MPEG 4 DivX video; and .JPG, .GIF and .TIF image files.

It has a fast USB 2.0 connection to transfer files to and from your computer and it even has a built-in microphone to record voice. The E2go also includes a user-removable/replaceable, rechargeable Li-Ion battery that’s as easy to change as the "double A’s" in a Walkman.
