Roll-Out Solar Chargers

The Compact E-Saving Charger is Ideal for Off-the Grid Battery Boosting

— January 14, 2014 — Eco
The E-Saving Charger will ensure that modern man continues to enjoy outdoor activities such as camping. This concept addresses people's obsession with staying connected to the rest of the world, particularly when they're cut off from society.

Without electricity available, one could take advantage of the convenient features of this concept device. The compact case contains a retractable sheet that's made up of ultrathin and flexible solar panels. Draw the fabric out to its full length and leave this lying beneath the sun. The E-Saving Charger will harness the rays from above, convert them, store them and then deliver them in the form of power through two USB ports. Huang Zhicong, Gan Yexin and Wang Zihua may have helped enable you to keep your phone juiced up in the wilderness.
