Solar Power Jackets to charge Your Phone !
It is frustrating, when we are out, and the phone/iPad/handheld gaming system runs clean out of power. There are a bunch of products on the market to help you out in these situations — but most of them are an extra device(battery kind of) that you have to remember to charge, then carry around with you.
Tommy Hilfiger, with the assistance of solar manufacturer Pvilion, has launched a pair of jackets — one for men, one for women — that has an array of solar panels to collect solar power for charging your gadgets if you find yourself in a power bind.
When fully charged, the battery contains enough power to completely charge a 1,500 mAh device up to four times. It’s not clear how long this process takes collecting power from the sun, but if you find it frustratingly slow, you can also pull the battery out and charge it up from an external power source via USB
The jackets cost $599 for both the men’s and the women’s style, and are available from the Tommy Hilfiger website and selected stores in the northern hemisphere. They’re limited edition only, and 50 percent of the proceeds of each will go towards the Fresh Air Fund.
