Solar energy isn’t really the newest or latest technology, but using it to charge your phone is a new concept. You may think that exposing your phone to the elements and leaving it outside, in the scorching sun, for charging will spell the end for your beloved device. This is not the case with the XDModo Solar Charger, a gadget that allows you to harness the power of the sun without any harm to your phone.
The XDModo Solar Charger provides an adhesive surface which sticks to any window or glass surface, allowing it to use solar energy to charge your phone while staying indoors. The 1400 mAh lithium battery in the charger uses the electricity produced by the solar energy to charge itself and then the phone. This means that the charger can give power to your phone, once the battery of the charger has been charged.
The charger can be placed on any window, allowing you to charge in your office or at home. It can even work in your car and is a great charging source during emergency situations such as power outages. The XDModo Solar Charger can even be used outdoors. All you have to do is flip it over and you can charge your phone even when you are out of range of any electrical source.
The charger works with any phone that can charge via USB and comes with both regular and mini USB cables. The charger can be installed on any surface and the reusable silicone paper makes it easy to take off and install somewhere else. The XDModo Solar Charger is a very green way to charge your phone. It saves on energy, and with a price of $25.95, it’s easily affordable for all of the environmental enthusiasts out there.
