62 Eco-Friendly Charging Devices

From Kinetic Smartphone Chargers to Solar-Powered Phone Chargers

— July 31, 2013 — Eco
There's simply nothing worse than having your cellular phone low on battery and having no electricity or outlet to plug it in, which is why these eco-friendly charging devices are here to offer a more sustainable and effective way to energize your gadgets.

While making sure to pack your smartphone charger in your bag is definitely one way to stay prepared, you can't always rely on finding an outlet while outside or travelling abroad. That's why choosing to go green and utilizing a more natural and convenient method such as kinetic energy or solar power is a more reliable way to keep your technological devices going at all times.

From pedal-powered mobile chargers to sustainable smartphone chargers, these eco-friendly devices will definitely provide a more reliable source of energy while on-the-go.
