Logic3 has unveiled a solar charger for Sony’s portable gaming unit that, well, looks just like the PSP. If for a moment, you suspend your disbelief and cast aside the stereotype of a hermit-like pasty-faced gamer, this recharging unit for the PSP might come in handy for when those gamers find themselves outdoors with a dead battery, assuming that you can actually see the PSP screen in direct sunlight, but that’s beside the point.
What sucks is that it takes a full eight hours for this unit to completely recharge the 1800 mAh lithium-ion battery found standard on the PSP. During these cold winter months, some of us may not even see eight hours of sunlight each day, but I’m pretty sure the solar panels can recharge off of good ol’ incandescent or fluorescent light as well. If you have light, I’m sure you have a power plug too, rendering this device virtually useless.
You will be able to pick up this little device (well maybe not so little, it’s the same size as the PSP) for about $74.
