Called SolarKindle, the case can provide you with months of reading time and over 50 hours of reading lamp use on a single charge. The battery in the cover can be charged using the solar panel, as well as USB – so if you’ve been cooped up indoors for a while you still have a charging option available. The case has a solar panel built into its front, that allows you to charge your Kindle (and the case) poolside, or while you’re involved in other outdoor activities. The built-in reading lamp in the case is expected to last for 50 continuous hours on a charge. In addition to powering your Kindle the case also has a built-in reading light that is powered entirely from the case’s battery rather than your Kindle. The SolarKindle was a 2012 International CES Innovations Design & Engineering Awards Honoree, and will be available for US$79.99.
SolLight’s solution is to combine a lightweight carry pouch, a solar charger and some stereo speakers into something called the SoliCharger-SP. Transferring the juice from a charger to a smartphone or media player can be a time-consuming affair, time could be spent listening to the music stored on the device. The SoliCharger-SP most practical way to charge a mobile phone and listen to some music.

The concept behind the Sticker Phone is simple – instead of letting all the sunlight go to waste, use it instead to charge our phones. There seems to be an endless flow of sunlight coming in through windows – which seems to be perfectly balanced with the endless time we spend on our phones. Consisting of a solar panel on the back, the phone is literally stuck onto a window via suction, from which it absorbs light and heat, leaving you with a fully charged phone. With it’s powerful potential, this is an idea that’s gonna stick around for a while. In addition, its silicone composition allows it to be bent and twisted to be stuck on a variety of surfaces – anything from windshields to airplane windows.
Kyosemi spherical solar cells are specifically designed spherically in order to harvest energy with higher efficiency and flexibility as compared to flat solar solutions. The charging process is realized using the mini USB cable which is attached to Phoebus. It also has a thin film battery which users can customize to their liking. This allows Phoebus to have a friendly and flexible shape, which can be used as a pendant.
