The LG HFB-500 is a solar car kit and Bluetooth 2.1 speaker. The unique thing about this hands-free unit is that it is a solar-powered charger, meant to replace the plug-in phone chargers for mobile devices. As it is both solar-powered and solar-charged (through its built-in solar backing), the HFB-500 is an environmentally-friendly choice. Thanks to the built-in DSP, noise is reduced and echo cancelled, improving call clarity. The multiconnection feature allows you to connect the HFB-500 to two devices at once. Expert reviews of the LG HFB-500 have been fairly positive, but the solar panelling has been criticized for not working consistently.
