Review: RichardSolo 1800 for BlackBerry
Cost: $69.95 @RichardSolo.com
In the quest to make BlackBerry batteries last longer, there have been several portable chargers on the market. One of them is the RichardSolo 1800 for BlackBerry. But, there are 2 little things about this charger that makes it different from the rest: the LED flashlight and the laser pointer!
Compatible with all BlackBerrys, the RichardSolo 1800 is simple to use straight from the box. You can plug it in to the wall, then tandem your Blackberry to charge off of it. It takes about 5 hours to fully charge the RichardSolo and takes about an hour to fully charge a dead BlackBerry.
This charger also has a bright LED flashlight which is a for the times that your BlackBerry LED or screen isnt bright enough. And, a bonus for your cat: a laser pointer. Imagine the fun your cat will have while your charging your BlackBerry. If you’re not a cat person, you will love having this for important presentations, as well. Both the flashlight and laser pointer are controlled by a switch so you don’t have to worry about it being used when it shouldn’t be and both are controlled by their own buttons.
The LED’s on the charger are easy to read. Green means its charging itself. Red means it needs to be recharged and Blue means its charging the BlackBerry. It has been a very useful item in my BlackBerry collection and has a permanent place for charging on my desk but cannot help but be disappointed at their pricing point for it. $69.95.
