What’s more you do not need to live in Spain where there is constant sunshine blazing down, there Free Loader as the system is called can recharge the battery pack, so you can be using an iPod while it is being powered by the Free Loader system, this means that you can operate the device without the battery being charged, hence if you use the Free Loader you may not have to pay for the charging of the battery packs of mobile phones, pda’s, games devices, digital cameras and music players.


The Free Loader device takes power from the solar energy that surrounds us, the rays are picked up through the panels, or you can even charge the pack up via the USB port on the computer and then plug the attachment into the device that is low on battery.
