Comments Off on SPOR Solar Battery Charger Helps You Carry the Power of the Sun in Your Pocket

“Two college kids trying to save the world”. That’s the slogan put forth by the team who designed SPOR, and they might very well succeed in that endeavor. SPOR is a self-regenerating solar battery charger and power system for USB devices that can either be charged by an outlet or passively via the sun . It can charge multiple devices at once, and can charge a phone practically as fast as a wall outlet can. Additionally, the device’s shell is customizable to suit anyone’s tastes: it can be 3D-printed from any material you can find, in any color imaginable. How cool is that?
