Brooklyn-based studio PENSA in New York has developed a clever concept where everyday urban infrastructures can double as charging stations. The concept ‘Street Charge’ are solar-powered street lamps that include USB ports. Passers-by can can plug in their portable device and place it on the small built-in bench to charge.

Street Charge acts as a convenient ‘rest stop’ for individuals who need to browse the web, or send e-mails when their smartphone is low on battery. A battery will also be used to harness the solar energy so the LEDs can light up in the evening.
