So many of us use our iPhones and iPads as our music and video players, but because they’re not designed to be very loud when not using earphones, it can be frustrating when trying to listen to music or watch videos with our friends. There are plenty of options for external speakers, most of which require a power cord or batteries, but if you’re looking for a low-tech green alternative, you might find that this “green amplifier” does the trick, without using any extra electricity.
The eco-amp 2.0, which is a passive amplifier that fits onto the end of the iPhone 4, 4S, or 5, can increase the volume and clarity of the sound from your device, without needing an external power source. The eco-amp, from Eco-Made, is made out of FSC-approved post consumer recycled fiber, folds up flat for storage and transport, and can be a viable option for those who want to share music without needing a dual headphone setup. They come printed in a variety of patterns, and each pack of two costs just $10 USD.
The eco-amp for iPad is a bit different of a design, and instead of slipping on the device, it uses a repositionable adhesive to mount to the iPad. The adhesive is said to be sticky enough to stay on the device and be removed and replaced easily, but won’t leave a sticky residue behind when removed. This version also comes in a variety of patterns, and each package contains two eco-amps (one plain and one patterned) for just $10 USD.
