Wireless accessories maker Iqua (which hails from Finland but has just opened an Americas headquarters) plans to start selling a $99 solar-powered Bluetooth headset in the United States next month.
The product is called the BHS-603 Sun. It can complete charge itself within two hours if left in the direct sunlight. Talktime (in the dark) is up to 9 hours; it lets you talk up to 12 hours in indirect sunlight. Standby is up to 200 hours in darkness and “unlimited” with daily indirect sunlight.
More specs: The headset supports Bluetooth 2.0 EDR and can be paired with up to eight devices at one time. It works at temperatures down to freezing. (Hmmm, I never thought about that before. How well do wireless earpieces work in a New York winter?
Just one question: Does this mean I need to get my hair cut short again?
