), a leading creator of high-performance, green-powered consumer products, is showcasing the Rukus Solar, a portable wireless sound system with solar panel that keeps the music going all day. Blending key technologies – Bluetooth, enhanced monocrystal solar panel and an E Ink display – Rukus Solar enables wireless music streaming from any Bluetooth® enabled device with maximum portability. The Rukus Solar, in addition to the full range of Etón products, can be seen at the company’s booth, Hall 15.1, Stand #135.
“At Etón, we strive to create durable products with enhanced design and performance elements to harness the power and energy of nature,” says Esmail Hozour, CEO of Etón Corporation. “The Rukus Solar incorporates all those essentials and can be enjoyed anywhere – indoors and outdoors – we are looking forward to showing it to the IFA community this week.”
The first and only music-streaming sound system that allows users to charge a smartphone while simultaneously playing music, users can easily stream music from any Bluetooth-enabled device. Rukus Solar offers flexibility and portability, and is equipped with two full-range speaker drivers to deliver booming lows and crystal-clear highs. The embedded 40-square-inch solar panel collects the sun’s energy and takes about six hours in direct sunlight to recharge the internal lithium battery. Alternatively, Rukus Solar can be conveniently charged via AC adapter and the integrated USB port charges mobile devices when on the go.
Rukus Solar incorporates an E Ink SURF segmented display providing great visibility in direct sunlight and also a 180-degree viewing angle. It uses minimal power and is virtually indestructible, complimentary to the design of Rukus Solar and other lines in the Etón brand. Easily see at-a-glance information, including Bluetooth connectivity, USB charge indicator and battery strength.
