These days music is not restricted to the four walls or the headsets of one’s walkman, we have moved to iPod’s and other cute and small music players and phones which double as music players! Adding Speakers make them equivalent to any standard music player which can blare music for everyone to hear. But when outside one things that hampers use of speakers is how to power them? Finding a power source/ power point etc.. wires et al makes it cumbersome. UK based Devotec Industries has a solution – Solar powered speakers!!

Devotec Industries is a new and exciting technology company whose primary focus is to develop their range of cutting-edge electronics. With a design team led by their Cambridge Phd CTO, the products they have created are among the most efficient and reliable in the industry.

The Devotec industries Solar Sound 2 Bluetooth® Speakers are light and portable while still being able to produce a deep, clear sound. With integrated bluetooth, they can be connected wirelessly to most of the latest phones, including the iPhone (with use of the iPhone 3.0 software update). The Solar Sound 2 speakers have an integrated solar panel for charging in sunny areas, and a 3.5mm connector for use with music sources that do not have bluetooth (cable supplied).
