Rawlemon Beta.ey Solar Charger

Spain-based German architect Andre Broessel has a big dream. he believe in autonomous consumption off the grid that will eventually contribute to reverse climate change and the Rawlemon is the invention that he is banking on to achieve this dream. so what is a Rawlemon? it is basically a big-ass solar ball lens that directs diffuse sun ray into a photovoltaic panel with far greater efficiency over conventional solar panels. the principals behind spherical geometry and how light behave when passed through them allows the water-filled ball lens to direct even the faintest sun ray, therefore enabling harvesting to continues when cloudy or even at night. there’s another features that makes the Rawlemon further stands out from the rest of the solar devices out in the market: it has special dual axis tracking system that enables the solar ball lens to follow the course of the sun and moon as they travels across the sky.

StrongVolt SmartCharger Solar Charger

we seen our fair share solar charger, but the StrongVolt SmartCharger you see here is not your typical solar chargers; it solves two common problems associated with current solar chargers in the market. first, it has a patent-pending SunTrack technology that allows the StrongVolt to go into standby mode when the sun is not available (such as being momentarily blocked by clouds or you walked into a shade) and automatically resume charging once the sun is back. this may come as a surprise, but this is apparently an inherent problem with current solar charging offerings. those chargers will still work, but not without having to disconnect the charger and reconnecting it again, which can be quite a hassle, especially when the sun comes and go in a typical cloudy day.

FlameStower

even the so-called adventure purists can’t live without electronics gears when out in the wild as evidence by the existence of gadgets like satellite phones (which has been around for decades) and for that, we have reasons to believe that average folks like us would not fancy living without power – even though we might not even have cell signals, but that’s beside the point. anyway, if camping out in the woods is your kind of fun, we think you and FlameStower here might become best friends in no time. like the BioLite CampStove, it rides on the heat generated by your wilderness cooking routine to charge your various USB-powered devices such as your smartphone, tablet, camera, and perhaps you portable Bluetooth speakers. basically, all the stuff that shouldn’t be bringing if you really want to be in touch with the nature, but then as we all found out the hard way that we can’t actually live without them. in another words, we just can’t live with just cricket symphony, or owls belting out solos.
