Solar power has certainly gained in popularity over the past decades, becoming more and more commonplace in many peoples lives. The problem however, is it’s still not all that accessible for daily use. Sure, you can convert your home, but that costs money, more than most people have laying around to spend. And then of course, there are products out there that may be more affordable — like solar power panels you can take hiking, fishing or camping to keep your electronics charged while adventuring around outdoors — but again, these products aren’t really intended for day to day living. What’s more, even if you do manage to use these products for your daily energy needs, most often they are bulky and/or unattractive, which for the design conscious, doesn’t make for an ideal solution to going “off the grid”.
GroupHug recognizes these issues however and is making a move to change things in order to make solar power more accessible to all, with their Window Solar Charger.
What Is the Window Solar Charger?
Bringing solar power to your living room.
In short, this is an awesome 10×13 inch solar panel for your personal use. It hangs (via a handy cotton cord at the top), in your window and absorbs the sun, thereby charging it’s built-in (220 mAh) battery! A full charge takes anywhere from 8-10 hours depending on the amount of sunlight it gets, and once it is fully charged, it can charge up your smartphone to a complete charge at regular speed! Or, you can have your phone, (or whatever device really), plugged in and charging while the frame is in the window itself!
Beautiful design, convenient size and quality tech all in one.
Why do I need one?
Charge and power all your daily electronics (and donuts, obviously).
Making the switch to solar power is not only good for you, it’s good for the environment. The problem with most solar options though, is they are either super expensive, bulky, unattractive, unavailable for apartment dwellers and/or made for specific activities (such as hiking, fishing, camping etc). When it comes to people who, say, live in the heart of the city, rent an apartment and aren’t big fans of all those outdoor activities, the fact is, solar power options were pretty limited. Which is exactly why GroupHug created their Window Solar Charger. This solar charger is going to bring accessibility to solar power into the homes of every interested person, with minimal costs and no compromise on aesthetic design. Beautifully built, this Window Solar Charger can charge all your daily devices, while also taking your green living efforts to a new level.
Where can I get one?
The Window Solar Charger is currently available for preorder on Kickstarter, with plans to have the first batch shipped out by April of 2020. However, because these Window Solar Charges are stirring up quite a lot of interest demand has been high, and consequently there are only a few preorders left, so if you don’t want to wait for round two, make sure to get your order in ASAP!
The beautiful design fits right in with any decor.
