If you’re travelling seriously light on a business trip or are just very eco-minded (in which case I assume you ran or sailed), this neat solar-powered stereo speaker, weighing just 260g and measuring 16.5cm x 5.5cm x 5.5cm, will not only fulfil your entertainment requirements but won’t involve carrying a charger unit or lead.
Indeed, if you’re going for the seriously, seriously light effect, you could even avoid carrying a laptop. You can feed the Devotec Solar Sound music from your Bluetooth-enabled phone and use the phone to access all your vital documents back in the office via a Pogoplug. Don’t forget the phone charger, though... and the lead... and some batteries, in case the sun doesn’t come out.
