One of the biggest concerns that is plaguing environmentalists off late is the numerous gadgets that are flocking the market on a regular basis and the frenzy with which people are eating them up. This does put extra burden on grid power and with vehicles going the way of ‘plug-in’ hybrids, there are just not enough sockets in the world sometimes. One of the wonderful alternatives that we have though is to turn to solar power. This is especially the case with small gadgets and smartphones that can be easily hooked up to a photovoltaic panel for plenty of juice.
SoftFocus is now coming with a solar-powered e-reader cover that is not just the first of its kind on the planet, but will also help you charge up your Kindle for a whole three months with one session in the sun.
