The Changers Starter Kit Collects Energy, Tweets to Your Friends

In the hopes of making eco-activism as simple and engaging as possible, Changers Starter Kit will not only harvest the Sun's latent energy to power your devices, but it will tweet and notify your friends about the altruistic good you've done.

The kit comes in two components: a thin, diminutive solar cell and a stylish battery. According to the manufacturer, Chargers, 4 hours of exposure is enough to reach the battery's maximum storage; enough to charge your iPhone twice! Any gadget capable of accepting mini and micro-USB connections is compatible with the Changers Starter Kit. The rub lies in the solar cell's networking abilities -- using your Facebook or Twitter page, the device will broadcast how much energy you've collected and will remind your friends of the debt the environment owes you. Obnoxious? Maybe. Cost and harm reducing, however? Definitely.
