There's no shortage of solar powered devices for charging up your mobile gadgets, but few can match the chic style and clever versatility of the Regen ReNu. Its solar panel is used in tandem with one of several optional bases, including a basic iPod/iPhone dock, a sound dock with speakers, and even an LED desk lamp.
With a built in battery that's constantly storing away juice even when your iPod isn't docked, the ReNu can then transfer that charge into your device just as quickly as any regular dock. It can even switch over to pulling power from a wall socket if needed, useful for cave dwellers like myself who don't have a lot of ambient light in their space.
The ReNu is slated to be available early next year for $199.
