WakaWaka Power

02/13/13  |  Posted by Vanesa Jeric  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

WakaWaka Power is a solar charging station designed to boost battery life powered by sunlight. Devices reach a 75% charge in 6 hours of direct sunlight. The WakaWaka is also a light source, providing 40 hours of reading light with a day’s charge. It is small enough to fit in your pocket for an alternative green power source when needed. It is compatible with iPads, iPhones, and all other smartphones via USB. LED lights on the device let you know that the mobile device is charging, how full the WakaWaka battery is, when the WakaWaka is charging in the sun, and even provide light in an emergency.

In addition to preserving resources, WakaWaka is providing light to Haiti with a goal to light up the lives of 1.5 billion people. With every WakaWaka power ordered, two WakaWaka lights will be donated.

"Its been exactly three years since the devastating earthquake in 2010 and 370.000 Haitians still live in makeshift shelters without electricity. They live half of their lives in the dark and depend on toxic, expensive and extremely dangerous kerosene lamps."

WakaWaka Power is available for $69.00.
