Technology keeps improving and with the improvement of technology comes bigger and better ideas and in term of making the world a green and cleaner place the improvement of technology is always a good thing. Solar energy has been the pride of the advancement of technology when it comes to green energy and solar panels seem to get better and better as time goes on and the devices that utilize them becoming more and more frequent. One such new device has been created two inventors by the name of Eric Strebel and Jim Nogarian.
So what is this new invention that the two inventors have come up with? Well the new invention is called the Solar Vox and it is a USB charger that has been designed to be powered by the sun through the use of solar panels. The invention itself is a small case that has a solar panel in front and hooked up to two rechargeable double A batters. The case itself is designed to be tilted at zero, thirty, seventy or ninety degrees. This means that the solar panel itself can be tilted in almost any direction and as a result be placed almost anywhere and still be able to face the sun and collect the solar energy needed to power the unit. Once the double A batteries themselves are charged you can take the portable device you wish to charge and place it in the case of the solar panel. This allows for protection from the elements for the device and allows it to continue to stay fully charged while not in use.
The invention itself is small and compact and looks like something that will fly off the shelves as soon as consumers get the chance to look at it. The design is simple yet effective and with is small size it is highly portable. This means that it will be idea for travel and will be an invaluable tool for any outdoor adventure where an outlet is not present. While travel will be a big selling point for such a device, the fact that you don’t have to place your cellphone or other electronic device in an outlet to charge will end up saving you money in the end and help the environment at the same time. I would like to see an invention such as this being put into cars instead of the regular cigarette lighter charge so that even those cars that run solely on gasoline can become somewhat energy efficient. One thing’s for sure, this invention will help to pave the way for more like it and it will help us bring about a greener planet for everyone.
