Solar-Harvesting Watch Charges Mobile Devices On The Go
People will no longer need to be saddled with bulky, heavy chargers.
Currently on Kickstarter, Carbon is a watch-style solar charger that generates power as it’s worn, proving to be a likable alternative to bulky portable chargers and external battery packs. Designed by EnergyBionics, this device can harness the energy of both indoor and outdoor light.
Though Carbon is designed to harvest solar energy throughout the day, it can also direct electricity into its high density 650 mAh lithium polymer battery via USB. This device can add an additional three hours of usage for any mobile device that’s compatible with an energy output of 1Amp, 5 Volts and 5 Watts.
