CEO of Brown Dog Gadgets Joshua Zimmerman has created an ultra durable, waterproof solar panel called The Badger. He's launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project. With a USB connector, the solar panel is lightweight, compact and will charge multiple electronics at the same time. From a range of lifestyles from busy on-the-go people to those who enjoy consistent outdoor recreational activities, this innovation is suitable for a variety of lifestyles.
Waterproof on both the exterior and interior using plastic, rubber, and sealant, The Badger protects the USB connector with a 3 inch rubber casing. The solar panel charger can sustain the impact of being run over by a car and can be submerged in frigidly cold waters.
Equipped with an extremely high amperage USB, the charging time is incredibly fast and the watt meter will track the amount of solar energy remaining at all times. With the ability to charge devices in the worst weather conditions, The Badger also has an automatic restarting function to save juice when it's not being used.
When devices are charged, they fit directly inside the solar panel pouch, which can be zipped up and taken anywhere.
