About Our Products

The solar chargers give users access to power when they need it, not just when they're near an electrical outlet. This on-the-go power is liberating for the time-constrained, or for those who are truly mobile and don't want to be limited by access to traditional power sources. The solar chargers eliminate the need for carrying additional battery packs and helps streamline what users need to stay powered up during their hectic day-to-day activities. The new chargers are easy on the environment, eliminating the need to carry spare batteries or to use traditional, pollution-inducing, fossil-fuel-created electricity. Since the charger can use any indoor or outdoor light source, they're crucial for emergency, power shortage, rolling blackout or severe weather situations. The solar charger absorbs all light energy -- not just the sun's -- turning it into usable electricity. This electricity is used to charge electronic devices, such as cell phones, PDAs, MP3s, gaming devices and digital cameras.
