Even The Person Who Has Everything Doesn't Have These.

Granted, they might not WANT them, either, quite frankly. I just found them interesting and practical-sounding. They, among others, were included in an Ottawa Citizen article in yesterdays' edition entitled "Go Greener with Gadgets".

And no, I'm trying to pass along gift ideas for myself. ;-)

Sidewinder Charger: The SideWinder charger is the world's smallest, lightest, and most powerful portable cell phone charger available. Weighs only 2 1/2 ounces and puts out power greater than a plug-in charger. Ideal for any situation away from a traditional power source and you need to complete a call. 2 minutes of charging equals over 6 minutes of talk time, even more standby time. The SideWinder also contains a powerful LED light that runs over 5 minutes with NO BATTERIES and only 30 seconds of charging!

Solar Ovens: Easy to use, easy to carry (the oven weighs only 10 pounds), wind and weather resistant, the Sport is the perfect addition to camping trips, beach parties, fishing trips, back yard barbecues and everyday cooking. You no longer have to pack heavy and messy charcoal or flammable fluids. Using the Sport keeps the heat out of the kitchen and takes advantage of free sun power.

Designed by solar engineers to be used in sun rich but fuel poor areas in the world to improve the quality of life and nutrition of some of the 2.4 billion people who lack adequate cooking fuel, the Sport is also captivating U.S. consumers. Constructed of post-consumer recycled plastic pop bottles, aluminum and state of the art insulation, it is efficient, environmentally friendly, cost effective and fun to use.

The Centameter: The Centameter acts as an 'electricity speedometer' in the home, building awareness of electricity cost on a real-time basis. Confirm at a glance that nothing has been left on when on your way out of the house. Identify the high power consuming devices, and minimize their operation accordingly.

If the Centameter indicates that electricity costs are too high, take control. Check the home to find out what is costing you money, and decide what is worth keeping on.
