Hello Kitty solar charger
Hello Kitty has always been a lot of things to a lot of people: casually cute, adorably addictive, freakishly frightening, you name it. Sure, she's clawed her way past countless characters backed by Sanrio and somehow managed to get her mouthless mug stamped onto every product imaginable, but the demure feline is nothing if she's not environmentally responsible. Yes, friends, Ms. Kitty has officially achieved superstar status. She's finally met and teamed up with the hottest powerhouse known by everyone in the world: the sun.
The result of the dynamic duo's new partnership is this Hello Kitty solar charger ($160). The built-in 1200mAh lithium battery receives a full charge through six hours of sunlight (ah, teamwork) or an hour of outlet time (so much for loyalty) and can charge a variety of small electronics via USB. Cool, I mean, hot!
