While there are quite a few solutions if you want to dock your music in the garden or a BBQ, this new dock from Eton is really interesting because it is waterproof and solar powered.
Etón are known for making high-quality portable and emergency radios, which tend to be powered by alternative means, either solar or hand-cranking. This time around, they are releasing an iPod and iPhone dock, that will fit perfectly while you lounge around the pool or the garden.
It can also be used for camping and BBQs quite easily, since it doesn't need a power outlet or batteries to function. The dock is called the Soulra and has a rubberized exterior. It's supposed to be splash-proof. The included rechargeable battery is lithium-ion and can be juiced up by a AC adapter, if the sun isn't powerful enough.
