Recently several states in the US enacted their own distracted driver laws. Talking on the cellphone while driving definitely qualifies as a distraction. NoiseHush has attempted to address this issue by a solar-powered hands-free Bluetooth carkit. The accompanying literature states the device provides unlimited talk time while charging its battery, is Bluetooth version 2.1 compatible, has an adjustable LCD screen, and is easily installed in any car.
The NoiseHush SolarVisor N650 is a fairly lightweight, 4.5 x 2 inch black plastic device. A small magnet and solar cell is located on the rear of the unit. A clear plastic windshield mount, USB car charger, and instruction manual are included with the kit. The NoiseHush SolarVisor N650 needs to be fully charged before using. It takes two hours with the USB car charger or approximately twenty-eight hours if using sunlight.
