It Runs from the Sun

The brainchild of a team of international designers under the umbrella of XD Design, the Window solar charger has an ABS plastic case with a PV panel surrounded by silicone pads capable of temporarily sticking to the glass of a window. On the base of the device are a full-size USB port and a mini-USB port for connecting portable devices in need of a clean energy battery boost. The charger itself contains a 1300 mAh Li-ion battery which is said to take around 13 hours of direct sunlight to reach full charge.

The Window solar charger outputs 5V/500mA via the included mini-USB cable, and has over-charge and over-heating protection built in. There’s an LED charge indicator on the bottom edge which lights red when charging and green when the battery is full.
