Solar Nano Smartphone Case Gives your Phone Perpetual Power
JUSE collects solar energy, stores it in a nano battery and automatically charges your mobile
As more of the global population gets mobile phones, the power required to charge all of these devices is taking a huge toll on the environment. A startup in San Francisco has created a way of charging mobiles which is much better for the planet: the world’s first cellphone case that stores solar power in a nano battery to top up your phone automatically.
Charging a mobile electronically is expensive and it relies on a fossil fuel, an issue that is growing worse as more people have access to mobiles. EMarketer predicts that between 2013 and 2017, mobile phone penetration will rise from 61.1% to 69.4% of the global population. And on top of the financial and environmental cost, the short battery life of many mobiles means that even if you charge your mobile overnight, it may not last 24 hours.
