[List of Purchasers]

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I have acted as counsel to Solomon Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), in connection with the execution and delivery by the Company of the Securities Purchase Agreements, dated as of June 27, 2008 and June 30, 2008 (the “Agreement”), by and among the Company and the purchasers identified on the signature pages thereto (the “Purchasers”). This opinion is given to you pursuant to Section 2.2(a)(ii) of the Agreement. (Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein are defined as set forth in the Agreement.)

I have participated in the preparation and negotiation of the Agreement and the Exhibits and Schedules thereto, and the other documents referred to therein. I also have examined such certificates of public officials, corporate documents and records and other certificates, opinions, agreements and instruments and have made such other investigations as I have deemed necessary in connection with the opinions hereinafter set forth.

Based on the foregoing and upon such investigation as I have deemed necessary, I give you my opinion as follows:

1.The Company is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of Delaware. The Company has all requisite power and authority, and all material governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals, that are required to own and operate its properties and assets and to carry on its business as now conducted and as proposed to be conducted (all as described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-KSB for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2008. The Company is duly qualified to transact business and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the failure to qualify could have a Material Adverse Effect on the Company.

4.All action on the part of the Company, its directors and its stockholders necessary for the authorization, execution and delivery by the Company of the Transaction Documents, the authorization, issuance, sale and delivery of the Preferred Stock pursuant to the Agreement, the issuance and delivery of the Underlying Shares and the consummation by the Company of the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents has been duly taken. The Transaction Documents have been duly and validly executed and delivered by the Company and constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Company, enforceable against the Company in accordance with their terms, except that (a) such enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights in general and (b) the remedies of specific performance and injunctive and other forms of injunctive relief may be subject to equitable defenses.
 
5.After giving effect to the transactions contemplated by the Agreement, and immediately after the Closing, the authorized capital stock of the Company will consist of: an aggregate of 500,000,000 shares of Common Stock, of which approximately 114,614,980 shares will be issued and outstanding and 8,621,292 shares will be reserved for issuance upon conversion of issued and outstanding options, warrants and other derivative securities (including the Prior Debentures), 2,000,000 shares will be reserved for issuance to employees, officers and directors under the Company’s Amended and Restated Stock Incentive Plan, and 30,000,000 shares will be reserved for issuance upon conversion of the shares of Preferred Stock owned by the Purchasers.
