SunSprite and 4 Other Unexpected Solar-Powered Gadgets
SunSprite is the first solar-powered wearable device. So when you’re getting the light you need, your SunSprite is getting the light it needs to charge up.
Here are four other gadgets—from camping equipment to stylish bookbags—that are sure to recharge your life (and not let that glorious sunlight go to waste).
Charging Station on your Back
Birksun’s newest line of bags and backpacks are engineered to convert sunlight into usable energy in low-light environments. This means that a standard walk to and from work or class is all you need to charge up your sun-savvy backpack.
The bags act as a portable outlet, equipped with lightweight, built-in USB chargers. Not to mention, the bags are 100% waterproof. Powered by SunPower technology, the panels can withstand harsh weather, cement impact, sand, dirt, etc. The Birksun offers you durable, long-lasting, and stylish power wherever and whenever you need it.

Sharing is Caring
The WakaWaka Power 100% recycled portable charger is more than meets the eye. This entirely solar-powered portable charging device not only promises a full iPhone charge in less than two hours, multiple light settings (including an emergency beacon), and 150+ hours of power, but the WakaWaka “Share the Sun” campaign is also doing its part to better the world.
According to WakaWaka’s site, “1.2 billion people around the world do not have access to electricity, and hundreds of millions more face regular blackouts.” For every WakaWaka power charger purchased, one WakaWaka product will be donated to a family who does not have the luxury of light. This global awareness effort has impacted over 600,000 people in need in over 30 countries, and continues to grow. (http://us.waka-waka.com/products/)
