Developed in South Africa and Swaziland, eChaja is a solar-powered cell phone charger that comes with a base unit that includes a solar panel, a transformer and six outlets.

The product targets tourists in Africa who may be in need of battery charging during their trip. However, it is quickly being picked up by the locals as a charging facility in remote locations and by local businesses and shops as a way to attract customers.

The device is a bulky charging kit that lets users set a timer for each individual socket, allowing the device to have fixed time periods for every customer.

The eChaja charger is not only practical while traveling, but it is also a great eco-friendly alternative.
