The Current table is a nifty invention for the techie. The table works as any normal table would but it also has the added bonus of being able to charge portable devices.

The table gathers solar energy throughout the day like photosynthesis and uses that energy to power devices like computers and phones. Any time one’s phone is just sitting at the table it can now always be topped up with energy from the Current table.

The Current table uses solar panels to power itself but there is a key difference to other solar-paneled devices. This table works best in well lit locations that are close to sunlight but doesn’t work exclusively that way. The table works under diffused light so as long as there is any sort of light source, the table will operate.
