Solio Magnesium Solar Charger Review

I try to do my bit for the environment.  All my watches (13 of them) are vintage (1950s-1970s) and my last car was a ’71 Karmann Ghia – so, I’m at least recycling.

But, like most of you here, I have a stack of things that require recharging.

We all know that the main ways in which to generate electricity are not the cleanest of processes – unless you use the power of that rare orange globe that hangs in the sky (generally for a week in August in the UK).

Solar power is the way forward!

Thanks to the award winning high-tech Solio solar powered charger you can pretty much go wherever you want and feel smug in an eco-friendly kinda way.

One of the neatest things that the Magnesium Edition has over the basic Classic is the “energy gauge” LED light.  This indicates approximately how much juice you have left by the number of times the gauge button flashes, (four flashes indicates a full charge; three flashes, about 75 percent; two flashes, 50 percent; and one flash, 25 percent).

There are a number of other features that are worthy a mention but you’ll have to check out that full review.

All-in-all the Magnesium Edition costs $149.00 in comparison to the Solio Classic whose price tag is $99.95, it’s a bit of a jump but the review on Modern Eco Homes concludes it’s worth it.

Have a gander yourself and you’ll probably be putting in an order 🙂
