When it comes to saving money, I am all ears. Throw in some environmental benefits and you are well on your way to a great product. Today I will be taking a look at a product that incorporates both of these features into a single device, the Solio H1000 Universal Hybrid Charger. This portable battery charger draws it energy directly from the sun, thanks to an integrated solar panel and stores this power for up to a full year using an internal 1000mAh lithium ion battery. No sun? No problem! Simply connect the H1000 to your computer using a USB port for a quick charge. All of this sounds really great, but will the H1000 be able to back up all of these claims? Continue ahead as we aim to find out.

The Solio H1000 arrived in the retail package you see above. The front of the box shows the charger itself as well as the Solio name. The sides and back of the package detail some of the product features and specifications. Below is a complete list of specs, borrowed from Solio's website.

The specs list is a bit lacking and doesn't mention anything about the types of devices you can charge with the H1000. Just for the record, you can charge a wide range of cell phones, iPod/MP3 players, SmartPhones / PDAs, game players, GPS units and even digital cameras. You can find the complete list of supported devices by clicking here.

Continue ahead as we see what's inside and take a closer look at the Solio H1000 Universal Hybrid Charger...
