Wearable Phone Chargers

The Carbon Precision Solar iPhone Charger Makes Sense

— October 3, 2013 — Tech
Solar iPhone chargers are already available, but many seem clunky and strange to use over a regular charger. The Carbon Precision Solar Charger by Energy Bionics simply makes sense: you wear it on your wrist.

Simply wear the charger on your wrist as a watch; the watch becomes ‘charged’ via solar energy. Monitor the amount of energy stored within the device, and simply charge your device when you’re on the go. The device appears to take a regular firewire/USB input that wills imply plug straight into your iPhone or Android device. Imagine being lost out in the wild with a dead smartphone—simply charge your device—it could save a life.

This solar iPhone charger is currently under development and will be available via Kickstarter within the coming months.
