What is Solio?

“I’m free.”

Solio™, the Universal "Hybrid" Charger is powerful enough to charge all of your handheld electronic products at home or on the move, anywhere under the sun.   It works by absorbing power from either the wall socket or our very own Sun storing this energy within the Solio’s own internal battery.  Solio is the universal charger of the future because it can use free energy from the sun which is good for the environment while saving you money on electricity costs.  In addition to this, Solio limits your need to purchase and carry around multiple chargers for all of your gadgets; Solio is your one stop charging solution for all of your products from cell phones and iPods, to digital cameras, game players, GPS and even Fish finders!    One hour of sun will give you enough juice to play your iPod™ for about an hour.   When fully charged your Solio can store enough power to charge a typical cell phone or an iPod Nano at least two times.  Have you plugged into the Sun lately?

So wherever you are… whenever you need power… Solio is there.


Powers virtually all your handheld electronics


Stores power for whenever you need it


Chargeable from the sun or wall socket


Easy to use by attaching a cable and pushing a button

How Solio works

“Simple, responsible, cool.  I like that.”

Solio features a fan-blade design that allows it to achieve maximum solar area when in use.  Just spread out the blades, expose them to direct sunlight either out of doors or affixed to a window, and get ready to take your power on the road.

Just the facts:

  • Charging Solio’s internal battery takes 8-10 hours of direct sunlight.*
  • Solio will charge your device at the same rate as your conventional charger.
  • Using the included wall adapter, solio will fully charge in approximately 4 hours.
  • A fully charged Solio will completely charge an average cell phone at least once.
  • When charging a cell phone directly from the sun, 60 minutes of sunlight will provide approximately 10 minutes of talk time and four hours of standby time.*
  • When charging an iPod directly from the sun, one hour of sunlight will provide one hour of play time.*
  • Solio can store energy for more than one year.

*Performance figures vary among device manufacturers, intensity of sunlight, and ambient temperatures.
