Iqua Ltd. of Oak Park, CA has produced a solar-powered Bluetooth wireless headset for the U.S. market following its launch of the Iqua Vogue in Europe last year. The Iqua Sun uses the Vogue technology, which incorporates a photovoltaic cell that takes advantage of any available light — outdoors and indoors — to extend talk and standby times. “The response around the globe has been very positive, both in terms of environmental innovation and solid performance,” says Juha Reima, Iqua’s CEO. “Unfortunately, we’ve only been able to supply the European market until now.” Iqua recently added capacity in order to support the introduction of the Sun to North America.
