Earlier this week, Regen [1] wowed us with their sleek, modular iPhone charger [2]. Now the electronics company is back again with another impressive Apple-related product: the Reverb, an eye-catching 3-foot tall iPod [3] dock that blasts out the equivalent of 60 watts of sound from a conventional speaker. And best of all, it’s solar-powered.

The dock, which also features a backlit LCD display, charges completely after 20 hours of direct sunlight outdoors or 40 hours of direct sunlight indoors. That juices up the Reverb [4] enough to play 4.5 hours of music at ear-splitting volume or 12 hours at normal volume level. No need to set the Reverb out in the sun for 20 hours to play music at a reasonable level, though — three hours of outdoor sunlight provides enough power for three hours of music at normal volume. The Reverb can also charge via a regular electrical outlet.

Regen’s mammoth iPod dock will be available in April 2010 for the ultra-steep price of $2,229. If you’re looking for a cheaper solar-powered option, the ReNu modular solar panel and a regular Regen iPod dock cost just $249 combined.
