Have you ever had to deal with a power outage in your neighborhood? Most of us can survive short ones. But it is always nice to have a way to generate energy for your mobile phone and smaller gadgets even when your power is out. Solar Socket can help. It is designed to provide emergency power for your smartphone when the power grid goes down. You can install a Solar Socket by mounting its solar panel somewhere you get a lot of sunlight on a daily basis. Cut holes for the power cable and your Solar Socket, connect the cable, and mount. Solar Socket has a battery and charge controllers built-in.
Solar Sockets are compatible with all kinds of USB devices. Each can charge your phone from 0% to 100% in 3 hours. There are 3 Solar Socket models available:
- 1 USB Port 3350mAh
- 2 USB Ports 6700mAh
- 2 USB Ports 13400mAh
There are other ways to charge your phone during a power outage. But the Solar Socket makes your life easier. You can support this project on Kickstarter.
