At this point everyone knows that renewable energy is the way of the future and solar is just one of those energy sources we need to be tapping into. Spending hundreds if not thousands of dollars getting solar panels installed on your house is all well and good, but what if you want to decrease your carbon footprint while you’re on the go?

The Window Socket, designed by Kyuho Song & Boa Oh, is a portable solar charger with a solar panel on one side and an outlet on the other. It can be stuck directly to a window, where it will suck up energy that can either be used immediately or stored for later use. The designers are looking to upgrade the power to 10000mAh and add a USB outlet to allow additional items to be plugged in. As it stands, it can provide 10 continuous hours of power off of a single charge.


We have plenty of ways of harnessing renewable energy. The two biggest obstacles we face are storing it and making it available to consumers, and The Window Socket does both, even if it’s in a very small dose. If you want more energy than that, you’ll want to look into Elon Musk’s Tesla Energy.
