Harness The Sun

Use the power of the sun to tweet, text, and maybe even make a call or two. Roughly the size and weight of your phone, this solar powered charger connects to your device via USB port to give you a full charge in two hours. Perfect for power outages, camping, or simply the environmentally conscious, this innovative device also gives off a light for up to 150 hours and features an SOS emergency beacon setting. The best part? Getting one gives back. For each solar charger purchase, a light is given to one of the many people throughout the world without access to electricity. A code is included in the charger's package that allows you to choose where in the world the contribution is given. Bring on the sunshine! Made in China.

Marisa decided that solar powered emojis are simply a must. Read the results of her experiment with the Solar Powered Charger & Light on the blog.

Waka Waka means “Shine the light” in Swahili, so it’s a fitting name for the company Camille van Gestel and Maurits Groen founded in 2010. The duo was traveling through South Africa when they saw how many communities lacked access to usable energy sources. With the help of individuals and co-operations with NGOs, Waka Waka’s solar-powered products now provide safe, sustainable energy to millions worldwide.

The Netherlands-based company became a certified B Corp “to be part of the collective voice of companies that are about integrity, responsibility, sustainability and doing good in the world instead of being just about profits.”

Because Waka Waka believes that access to electricity is an essential, basic human right, they are dedicated to helping the 1.2 billion people who currently live off-grid (without access to electricity). “Access to energy for light and power means access to education, communication, and income generating opportunities,” they explain. Every time you purchase one of their products, they promise to improve access to light and power for someone off-grid.

My daughter will use this product when she's biking, hiking, or climbing. Too many times her phone needs charging before she's in a position to charge it, but with this charger, she'll be able to charge whenever she needs too. She'll also put the very bright light to good use, because she's usually out after dark. Bad daughter.

We love this as a charger. (I'm sure the light will be useful at some point.) It is well made and the packaging is easy to deal with. It charges quickly even in indirect light.

I went on a 5-day backpacking trip & didn't trust my cell phone to last over 4 days. This was perfect for my trip. I love the intensity of the light. It was perfect for the early rising in the dark when breaking down camp.

Awesome product idea for 21 century consumers

I charged and plugged into my cell phone. It charges slowly and doesn't recover the charge quickly, so it will be mostly reserved for travel occasions. The challenge is finding a place with lots of direct sunlight in the house, or perhaps I need to go on a picnic with it!
