Solar power is still a dominant method to power various electronics as an attempt to conserve electricity. Since then, companies have started to think small in a sense that they want to charge items without humongous solar panels. Perhaps smaller solar-powered items like this jacket will appear in an effort to harness the energy of the sun without the inconvenience of large contraptions.
