Adidas RPT-02 SOL headphones charge from the sun


A new pair of adidas solar-powered wireless earbuds will protect you from having to constantly charge your gadget from a wall outlet. The sports brand has teamed up with Zound Industries to create the Adidas RPT-02 SOL on-ear headphones, which can be charged with both natural and artificial light. We were pleasantly surprised by the previously released Adidas RPT-01 which provides 40 hours of wireless playback. The new range has an almost identical design, but promises double the playback time of 80 hours, not to mention the ability to charge at any time of the day. It’s also made from a combination of recycled plastic and nylon. The headband of the RPT-02 SOL is made from a highly flexible light element material by the Swedish solar technology company Exeger called Powerfoyle.

The solar cell material can be screen-printed onto plastic, allowing it to be used in a wide range of applications, from walls to automobiles to consumer electronics. Unlike older types of solar panels that need a strong and constant source of natural light, the Powerfoyle can be charged under a variety of lighting conditions. Other companies have already made solar-powered headphones, so the RPT-02 isn’t the first with this feature, but they’re still relatively rare. The RPT-02 is not waterproof, but is rated IPX4 so it can withstand sweat and splashes from a nearby ocean or lake. The earbuds come with built-in controls to change songs or volume, and there’s an indicator light to help you find the best charging light.
