If there’s one thing that gadgets eat up, it’s batteries. I can’t even calculate the amount of dough I’ve spent buying AA and AAA batteries.

The Freeloader is an “advanced portable charging system” that is capable of powering several handheld devices (see the list below). Utilizing solar panels, the Freeloader connects to your gadgets via USB, though for some devices you’ll need a special connector which some are included. The Freeloader can power an iPod for 18 hours, a cell phone for 44 hours, a Sony PSP for 2.5 hours, and a PDA for 22 hours. It sports an aluminum body so it can take all the travel abuse you throw at it.

The Freeloader costs £29.99 ($60 USD) and is available in silver or pink.
