The CASIO brand was the original “solar” watch brand and they have been pioneering this technology to this day. They continue this love for solar watch technology with this awesome new runners watch that has an integrated battery and a small solar panel.

Technology like this is very important when you consider just how many batteries end up in landfills every year from consumer electronics.

This mouse recharges quickly and completely eliminates the need for extra batteries.
