When you need to charge your phone but there are no outlets around, the Waka Waka is a solar-powered alternative that offers big results. All you have to do is set the charger under direct sunlight and voila: you’re good to go.
The solar panel provides a full 2200 mAh battery after roughly eight hours of direct sunlight. That means it’s able to fully charge most phones and tablets in under two hours. No sunlight? No problem. The Waka Waka also comes with an optional USB port should you find yourself near an electrical outlet.
In addition to being one of the best — if not only — solar chargers on the market, the Waka Waka also moonlights as a solar flashlight. With four separate settings, the ultra-powerful flashlight is able to provide up to 150 hours of continuous light on a single charge. Best of all, you can place the charger and light virtually anywhere. Set it on a table, clip to your backpack, attach it to a bottle — you get the picture.
Made with 100% recycled PC-ABS plastic, this charger’s not only eco-friendly, it’s also extremely impact resistant. But where this solar charger truly shines is in its humanitarian efforts. For every Waka Waka sold, the company will donate a second unit to a family in need.
If you should find yourself without electricity, then the Waka Waka could be a real lifesaver.
