More and more people are supporting renewable or green energy in the hopes that they can reverse the effects of global warming and climate change to the world today. A number of countries are even pledging to reduce their gas emissions daily. Third world nations like the Philippines is using solar panels to contribute in this valiant effort.
Various technology companies are also slowly getting on board by inventing and producing devices and gadgets which utilize solar energy. Here are some examples of them.
1. Solar Bike Lock
The Skylock is a smart lock that you can use to ensure the safety of your bike. It uses solar energy to connect to your mobile phone through its Bluetooth. You can simply lock and unlock it with your phone when you are near. It has the ability to send you alerts that will notify you if your bike is being stolen.
2. Solar Backpacks
At the moment, there are several types of solar backpacks you can choose from. Travellers, especially mountain hikers, use them in order to charge devices like their phones, cameras, etc. The BirkSun Boost is currently one of the best looking solar backpacks that you can get today. It features an unassuming solar panel, clean lines, and simple colours that you can be proud of.
3. Solar Bluetooth Speaker
There are many Bluetooth speakers you can get in shops today. However, only a few of them are solar-powered; most of these devices can charge your phone as well as play non-stop music for about eight hours. Some of them are also water resistant as well which makes them the perfect speaker to use during poolside parties.
4. Solar Keyboard
Logitech has innovated a wireless keyboard that can get its power from the sun or from any artificial light. You can easily have three months of battery life (in complete darkness) by fully charging it beforehand. You also do not have to worry about the keyboard’s design as it has been made to be sleek enough to match the rest of your PC as well as your desks.
5. Solar Window Charger
Solar charges now come in many shapes and sizes. This one particularly is a small solar charger you can stick to your window in order to collect solar power. It also comes in several colours that can match your interior or your phone case so it doesn’t stick out like sore thumb on your desk.
6. Solar Security Camera
Installing cameras to improve the security of your homes and properties has become the norm. Solar-powered security cameras are slowly being introduced in order to conserve energy. They are meant to be powered by the sun and are connected through your smartphone. Supposedly, they will only transmit A/V (audio and video) once they detect movement within 26-feet as a power conserving measure.
The number of these devices is likely to grow over time. Innovators are likely to provide more of them so long as people will keep giving value to Mother Nature in the form of using renewable energy.
