Solar powered charger introduced

WASHINGTON: Minnesota-based company has developed a solar powered charger and it has been imaginatively called the Sun Strap, the Daily Mail reported.

The device uses flexible solar panels made from waterproof materials to allow you to charge your phone, or any other gadget with a USB port.

Like other solar system, the strap converts the sunlight into energy and charges an internal battery. That battery then charges anything connected to the USB or micro USB ports on the bottom of the device.

When the device is fully charged on solar power it has enough energy to charge an iPhone three and a half times or fully charge an iPad mini tablet.

It can also be used as a camera strap to keep a camera charged even as it is being used.

The lightweight device, weighing just 0.37lbs (165 grams), is designed to fit around any strap and can also be mounted to the frame of a bike to power electronics when on the move.

Einar Agustsson, 33, created the Sun Strap with his 25-year-old brother Agust.

The inventor said ‘Anyone can use the Sun Strap: cyclists, students or ordinary people going about their day adding that the Sun Strap can be used in many different ways and its only limited by your imagination.’

He is now selling the Sun Strap on his website,
