Harness the power of the sun to charge your gear while you drive, fly, or just sit around at home

The Port Solar Charger from XD Design is designed to stick to a window and use the sun’s rays to power your gadgets.

This solar charger has a built-in battery that can be charged with a USB cable which will take about 2 hours or by sunlight which can take up to 20 hours. Yeah, you can’t be in a hurry 🙂

The Port Solar Charger’s built-in battery has a capacity of 1000mAh, so it won’t fully charge your phone. But it’s better than nothing and it’s free power.

I am not sure how well a solar charger like this works, as it depends on how much sunlight is hitting the window it’s attached to. But it would be a cool way to power your devices for free if you frequently travel by train, plane, or automobile, or if you have a nice big window that gets a lot of sunlight.

The price of the Port Solar Charger, on the other hand, isn’t free. It is priced at $49.99. For more info head over to www.xd-design.com and you can buy one from Amazon.

    I can see this causing people to lose their minds on an airplane. “OMG! He’s sticking something to the window! AND IT HAS A WIRE!”

      Hmmm, good point. They need to make a flat one so the shade could be lowered over it. 🙂
