OR Winter Market 2009 — GJ Report #12

Products as seen by the Gear Junkie at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, January 22 – 24, 2009. . .

EverLite EL9 Solar Clip Light — In the who-would’ve-thunk-it category, the EL9 from EverLite is the “first solar-powered clip light that can also charge a cell phone.” Hmm. Exactly, that’s what I thought. But this clip light can provide 14 hours of continuous light after a charge in the sun. Plus, it doubles as a DC-jack that lets you plug in cell phones, iPods, MP3 players and other electronic devices. All this in a 1.9-ounce package that costs $19.95. Available now. www.newlite.com
