5. Solar powered lighting system
Simply place some Corona Solar Powered Lighting System in your garden while the sun is shining and see your garden glowing beautifully at night.

A voltaic generator solar laptop charger is the best bet for those who cannot refrain themselves from using their laptops while travelling or when no electric point is around.

The Sun now plays the music too.
