How fitting: Scosche ‘goes green’ on St. Patties Day. That’s the title of the press release for the solCHAT, a solar powered Bluetooth speakerphone. For the most part it’s a standard Bluetooth speakerphone, but thanks to the built-in solar panel the device can charge itself off the grid. Three buttons – answer, volume up, volume down – make it ultra easy to use and once the device is paired with a handset all the user needs to do is come in range of the solCHAT for it to re-pair. Adding to its eco efficiency is an auto shut off feature once the handset is out of range. Fear not, included is a USB cable for those not so sunny spots.
The solCHAT from Scosche is available now for $100.

New Voice Announce Speaker Phone Harnesses the Power of the Sun
Oxnard, Calif., (March 17, 2009) – Scosche Industries (www.scosche.com), an award-winning innovator of mobile electronics and iPod accessories, is proud to announce the introduction of its environmentally conscious new Bluetooth speaker phone, the solCHAT (#CBHSOL). Harnessing the power of the sun, the solCHAT is powered by an integrated solar panel and lithium ion rechargeable battery combination. Utilizing voice announce technology, the solCHAT announces calls as they come in so users can keep their eyes on the road while driving.
Scosche’s engineers worked diligently to make solCHAT easy to use, even with its advanced functionality. With only three visible buttons— volume up, volume down and the answer/hang-up multifunction button —the solCHAT is exactly what consumers are looking for. Using voice announce, the speaker phone let’s users know who’s calling and actually guides them through the initial Bluetooth 2.0 device pairing process. The solCHAT automatically reconnects to users cell phones once initially paired. Users simply turn the solCHAT on when entering the vehicle and the device will automatically pair with the cell phone. Users don’t need to worry about turning the device off since the solCHAT will automatically turn itself off once the cell phone is moved out of pairing range.
Retailing for $99.99, solCHAT comes with a USB charging cable and car adaptor so you can charge at night and on days with insufficient sunlight. Also included are a windshield suction cup mount and sun visor clip for easy operation and solar charging. The solCHAT is now available at www.scosche.com and at retailers across the nation.
