Just signed up to back this Solar powered charger of USB devices. I’ll use it for my iPod touch, iPhone and old fashioned flip phone (Kyocera! $9 Virgin Mobile)
The guy who’s in charge of this is great. I’ve build about a dozen of his solar chargers. I’m not building this, but I would rather buy from him than from some big company.
You’ve got access to sun and need a charge this is the green way to go,
This is my first Kickstarter backing and I find the process interesting. His update and history of getting this done is funny and interesting.
He’s a teacher and I’ve corresponded with him and he really likes explaining what is going on and why it works.
I backed this at the 85 dollar level to get the solar cells and Battery pack I can’t wait to get them. I’m writing this post on an IPod I just charged with my USB charge I made from one of his kits.
If you are a maker you might want to go to browndoggadets.com and create one now while waiting for the bigger one via the Kickstarter.
