What's better than a solar-powered charger combined with a light? A company that makes said product and then helps third world countries by making the devices available at an affordable rate to people who make less than $2 per day in countries that do not have an electrical grid. Wakka Wakka does just that.
Dubbed the "iPhone of solar chargers," in an emergency situation, a single charge can give you 200 hours of LED light or can fully charge a dead smartphone. With a five month shelf life for discharge, you can leave this device in the drawer and save it for an emergency situation. The Waka Waka Power is available now and the Plus version will be available in April.
We also got to take a sneak peek at a power and light emergency kit, similar to a first aid kit. A power bank with multiple USB outs and LED lights that can be daisy-chained come inside a simple pouch and will be released in June. Fozzy Bear not included.
