Solar Imaging
Every gadget company is getting into the action camera game these days, but few are offering a device that never needs a wall charger. The Activeon Solar X is the latest in outdoor HD videography, recording in 4K with a touchscreen interface and wireless support for transferring files back and forth to your phone or tablet. But the real kicker is that it charges via a mini solar panel station that easily fits into a backpack. So the next time you’re out in the wilderness shooting footage, you won’t need to worry about finding an electrical socket to replenish the charge. Just connect it to its “X Station” and grab additional hours of battery life. A mere 30 minutes will get you an 80 percent charge, and an hour will charge the entire thing. The Activeon Solar X hits shelves in March with a retail price of $450. activeon.com
