Ingeniously Simple Solar-Powered Charger

Designers Kyuho Song and Boa Oh have developed a solution to having no electrical power source to plug into on the go. While our advancing technology provides countless benefits, it has also added to our modern day inconveniences. One such annoyance that nearly everyone can relate to is having your phone die on you with nowhere to recharge it. Luckily, Song and Oh have designed the Window Socket–a small, readily available, portable solar-charger.

Equipped with a solar panel and suction cup, this product is ideal for use on windows in offices or planes, but could also function while out in nature. The Socket converts the collected solar energy into electricity that can then actively charge any of your handheld devices. It also acts as a backup battery to have on hand for instant recharges.

Since this project is still in the developmental phase it takes up to 8 hours for the device to reach a full charge, making it rather impractical. However, the designers are working on the product in hopes of improving its efficiency and one day making it available to the general public.
