Solar Powered Phones

Opportunity

Mobile phones. We all have them and we all charge them frequently. In fact, modern smartphones are so power-greedy many of us charge them every night. All this sucks up incredible domestic power. What we wouldn’t give up for a phone that doesn’t need charging.That might be a bit far fetched though, but other alternatives aren’t.

 

Solution

A solar powered cell phone isn’t too impossible. Maybe it would be a limitation for countries that are less sunny. But for Egypt, there is a huge opportunity for it to be enacted. As an initial phase, the smartphones can feature both a regular charger and a solar cell strip on the back to test it out. This idea can be a life saver for days when we’ve forgotten to charge the phone overnight or when we’ve unexpectedly stayed over at someone else’s place.
