We all have our favorites when it comes to our cellular devices. Whether you prefer your cell phone to be Windows, Android or Apple, and regardless of your favorite apps and phone cases, there is one thing that we can all agree upon. We all want to have a charger handy at all times. Now, if that charger is also multifunctional and helps to save money and the environment, then show us where to get it
Accele Electronics is currently working on a new solar charger to add to their product line. We were intrigued to learn what they had to offer in this arena, especially since solar chargers haven't really taken off due to things like their extremely slow charge times. But we have to say, we were quite impressed with their adaptation of the technology.
First and foremost, we liked the design. It comes in the form of a small, compact case that open up to take the charge. It only takes six hours to fully charge the unit, but even with being charged for only an hour, it can jump start a car. Yes, you read that correctly: it can jump start a car that has a dead battery. When tested on a full charge, it jumped started an SUV and then charged four cell phones that each had dead batteries. It doesn't get much more impressive than that. All from a solar charged battery.
The unit comes with the car jumper cables, has an A/C plug along with a USB port and even an onboard flashlight making this the perfect charger to keep stored in your vehicle. It also comes with the a/c power cable and a car adapter, making it capable of conveniently charging up more quickly if necessary while on the go.
This nifty, energy saving product is available now and we can't wait to get our hands on it. Priced at $298, you can get yours by visiting their affiliate, Beuler's website.
