    It shouldn't be a question of whether the price is too hefty for a sound dock, but rather if it is too hefty for a solar-powered device of this scale, and the correct answer is no. Go look and see what a proper, well-made 10 watt solar panel costs, and then you might understand. The Bose dock costs this much and doesn't even boast a solar panel. If electronic grade silicon was cheap, then your 1sq inch processor inside your computer wouldn't cost $300, and solar panels would achieve much higher efficiency since it wouldn't have to be made from the less expensive but less efficient polycrystalline arrangement of silicon.
