Remember, the waterproof and fire resistant portable generator The Power Pot that can charge any USB devices? It was Power Practical‘s first crowdfunding and highly praised by all. Now, Power Practical™ is back with a new (it is the second project) power generator—The Solar Stash™. The Solar Stash™ can pack a pocket full of sunshine. Know more from inside.
The Solar Stash™ is a beautiful wallet size portable solar panel specially built to power mobile devices through USB. It is 40% smaller and 15% lighter than existing products. Its panel can be folded.
People will be able to charge their phone or headlamp, run their speakers or power their GPS by using only the energy from The Solar Stash™. Apart from this, The Solar Stash™ panel will come with a useful little tool called The Practical Meter™.
The Practical Meter can show users how much power is being supplied to their USB device. Each light indicates roughly one watt of power.
This amazing feature ensures optimal positioning of the solar panel towards the sun, maximizing power output. 5 lights means charge is in full power!
The Practical Meter not only works on the Solar Stash, but also it is compatible with all USB power generators like laptops, computers, battery packs, etc). The Practical Meter (in the following table) will show how much power is available for the charging device when a USB port will be used to charge that specific device.
It has been estimated that The Solar Stash will provide 200% more wattage output compared to existing products. However, half of the proceeds from initial production will jumpstart a new solar evergreen fund with Solar Sister. When The Solar Stash will be ready, Power Practical will distribute the panels throughout regions of Sub-Saharan Africa where safe, reliable and affordable energy is a luxury.
