Solar chargers are nothing new. You can use them outdoors to keep your phones or tablets charged. But they could also work well when you are experiencing power outage. You don’t even need to invest in an expensive solar energy system to take advantage of this technology. Take the Solar Socket for instance: this is a solar powered USB wall socket that you can install easily for emergencies. It can keep your phone charged, power your LED flashlights, and more. You are just going to need some sunlight for this system to work.
Solar Sockets are compatible with most USB devices. One can charge your iPhone from 0% to 100% in 3 hours. You can install Solar Sockets easily. It is a 3 step process: just mount the solar panel anywhere there is sunlight. Second, drill a hole for the power cable and insert it through the hole. Cut a hole in your wall for the Solar Socket, connect the cable, and mount. Solar Socket has a battery and charge controllers built-in. The system has a modular design. Like what you see? Solar Socket sets you back as low as $89, but you have to be an early supporter.
