Portable Solar Panels

These Solar Sockets Can Stick to Any Window for Power On-the-Go

— April 27, 2014 — Tech
If you're wondering what exactly a solar socket is then you're in for a pleasant surprise. The socket can stick to any window and soak up sunlight, photosynthesis style. It then turns the sunlight into portable electricity that can be used to power all manner of devices.

The one thing that all people with portable electronics dread is running out of juice. Bags are filled with chargers and cables to avoid this, but this portable solar socket could easily replace all of those. When you're short on sockets but have a ton of sunlight, you can stick the socket on any window and keep yourself topped up at all times.

Never worry about that little battery sign telling you that you're running out of time ever again with the portable solar socket.
