You don’t always need to have access to a power outlet to be able to charge your gadget. Solar chargers allow you to generate power for your phone or tablet as long as you have access to some sunlight. There are also chargers that enable you to generate your own power. Here are 3 smartphone and tablet chargers that power up your devices at home or in the outdoors in an eco-friendly fashion:
WindUp Chair by Pega: a cool chair with a clockwork mechanism that generates power for your phone as its flywheel unwinds. It requires you to do some clockwork to generate your own energy.
iRock: a premium rocking chair that generates power for your tablet as you relax. It is handcrafted out of Swedish pine wood and comes in 5 different colors. The chair is under development at this time.
Solar Market Umbrella: this umbrella has 4 10″ x 4 1/4″ solar panels with a rechargeable 3.7-volt/1000mA backup battery. It provides power for your tablet and smartphone as you spend some time outside your home.
These chargers are not cheap but they allow you to generate extra power for your phone or tablet without having to be connected to the grid. Have you found better ones? Share them here.
