Have fun in the sun while staying totally green with this ingenious remote controlled Solar Car!
This chunky little car is proof that the RC world has finally caught up with the green movement. Instead of being powered by electricity or expensive-to-replace batteries, it’s cleverly designed to run on sunshine! Yes, there’s a solar panel set into the car’s rooftop that charges its built-in rechargeable battery and, in turn, powers the car – so as well as being a great way to learn about renewable energy, you’ll never need to pay out for pricey packs of replacement batteries again!
But what’s really innovative about the Solar Car is that its controller is charged by the sun too. Just plug it into the jack on the back bumper and it’ll charge up via the rooftop solar panel, just like the car itself does! Plus, charging aside, it’s a really neat way to store the control pad when the car’s not in use.
Wondering what to do with your Solar Car on a cloudy day? Well, because we appreciate that British weather is predictably unpredictable, it comes with its very own USB charging cable too. Simple connect it to the underside of the car and plug it into the mains for an old-school power boost whenever the sun’s in hiding.
