Eton has developed a new power-saving, self-generating way to listen to your favorite tunes indoors and outdoors with the invention of the Rukus solar-powered Bluetooth boombox. Apart from a stylish exterior, these speakers are built on the premise of prolonged consumer satisfaction through minimal energy consumption.

The speakers are designed with large solar panels to optimize self-sustaining power. One can finally satisfy dreams of listening to music outdoors without having to drain an iPod’s battery. The Bluetooth feature allows for a strong and wireless stream of one’s music, meaning the speakers can be taken virtually anywhere. These speakers can recharge while you’re outdoors and if the sun isn’t out, they can be wired to power instead. Eton has also taken screen glare into consideration; the Rukus has an integrated e-ink display that not only solves glare issues, but is also renown for significantly decreasing power usage.

These durable speakers are the dream boombox for any avid music listener with a Bluetooth device. Stats for Lightweight Sun-Charging Speakers Trending: Older & Mild
