Every child has a favorite toy. For little girls, it’s probably a doll or a teddy bear. On the other hand, the boys typically go more for cars, trucks and guns. One toy, however, is a big hit with boys and girls alike. For that matter, even adults can’t help playing with RC Toys (remote controlled or sometimes referred to as radio controlled toys). There’s an unspoken thrill and excitement to be able to control a small object and make it speed around the house as fast as its wheels can take it.
The one downside with these RC toys perhaps is that they tend to chew up a lot of batteries. And that’s not too eco-friendly, or easy on the pocketbook.
As an alternative, check out the RC Solar Car – a solar rechargeable remote control car. This bright yellow solar car is powered by the sun’s rays which are absorbed by a solar panel located on the roof of the car. And when you don’t have a suitable solar light source available, the RC Solar Car can also be re-charged from a USB port (a USB cable is included). Even the remote control panel also charges using the solar panel on the car, simply plug the remote control panel into the port on the car’s back bumper and it will re-charge from the solar panel as well.
With the RC Solar Car, you have full maneuverability from the remote with forward/reverse and left/right steering control. The RC Solar Car is recommended for kids eight years of age and up. But don’t kid yourself, the adults can’t keep their hands off this little amusement either (must be the kid in all of us). And what better way to teach your kids about environmental responsibility with this eco-friendly RC car at the same time.
RC Solar Car – Charging and Play Times
- 30 minutes solar charge gives you 5 minutes of power
- 1 hour solar charge gives you 10 minutes of power
- 2 hours solar charge gives you 15 minutes of power

Get the RC Solar Car that runs on sunshine. Very affordable at a price of £24.99, your kids will enjoy hours of entertainment, and you’ll enjoy the savings when you don’t have to buy or replace all of those batteries.
Have you ever wished that you could bring along your washing machine where ever you go? There are times when you are on a camping trip and you accumulate mud and dirt on your clothes. It is simply impossible to pack that piece of clothing together with the rest of your clothes and wash it when you reach home. By that time, the mud would have hardened and the stains would have had set into the fabric. You might as well throw the apparel away.
The solution to this laundry nightmare is the Portable Mini Laundry Pod. Created by a company in California, the designers got their inspiration from salad spinners. Measuring at 33 by 35 inches, this Portable Laundry Pot can fit snugly anywhere in your dorm room or apartment without taking too much space unlike a bulky washing machine.Even better, the Portable Laundry Pod is eco-friendly. It doesn’t require a lot of water and it runs without electricity.
For a single wash, the Portable Mini Laundry Pod can take about six items. You simply add a soap solution into the Portable Laundry Pod together with your clothes, close the lid, and start churning the basket within the Pod by turning the handle on top of the Pod. After 10 minutes of getting a good work out from turning the handle, you can empty the Pod via a hose at the bottom. After that, you begin the next rinse cycle with clean water to make sure your clothes are soap free. You will need to dry your clothes by squeezing the water out with your own hands and most likely hanging them up to dry.
An irritated groan escapes your lips as a familiar beep followed by a pop-up reminds you that your iPhone is running out of juice. Fortunately, with the Freeloader Pico Solar charger ( priced at $39.99 ), charging up your iPhone and going green at the same time is definitely not a problem.
At the first glance, the Freeloader solar charger is a light and compact device that allows its users to lug it around in their pockets. Besides that, the Freeloader acts as a portable battery, allowing the Freeloader to transfer energy to the connected device in fairly short time – around 30 minutes to fully charge up an iPhone.
The difference is that, when this battery is exhausted, it can be recharged through a means of solar energy – charging under direct sunlight will take 10 hours to achieve maximum capacity though. In addition to that, the device also comes with extension tips for several portable devices such as Nokia, Samsung and so on.
Using the Freloader Pico Solar Charger, however, can be quite confusing at the beginning. If you take a closer look at the device, you’ll notice that there are four LED lights beside the word “Pico”. These lights indicate a function. For example, if the second light is lit, it indicates that the battery is currently charged by solar or USB. When it is fully charged, the light turns off. If a device is being charged, all lights will be used and each fades away as the connected device charges to maximum capacity.
