Waka Waka Power solar charger seeks Kickstarter funding, charge your iPhone with just the power of the sun

Waka Waka Power solar charger seeks Kickstarter funding, charge your iPhone with just the power of the sunThe Waka Waka personal solar power station is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. The Waka Waka Power is a personal solar power station which can power your iPhone and iPad using just the power of the sun. The Waka Waka Power has been created on the back of a previously successful Kickstarter campaign for the original Waka Waka which was a solar powered LED light. This new product encompasses both an LED light and a charging station in one.

The WakaWaka Power is a pocket size mini power station with super-efficient solar cells and a power management system which ensures efficiencies which are up to 200% better than any other product in the market. Apart from charging your smart phone, WakaWaka Power is also a light source which can provide you with more than 40 hours of excellent reading light (on a single day solar charge!).

Place WakaWaka Power in direct sunlight for a whole day and you will notice that the battery will be completely full, even if you live in New York or Seattle (where the intensity of the sun is far less than in Texas). The capacity of the battery is large enough to fully power most mobile phone from completely depleted, to practically full. On top of this, you will have 10 or more hours of excellent reading light as well. If you don’t charge your phone or tablet, as said before, you can have more than 40 hours of light.

If you like the look of the Waka Waka Power, you can grab a piece of the action with an early pledge. The early bird $49 offer has already sold out but you can still pick one up if it is successfully launched for a $59 pledge. The Kickstarter project has already smashed through its funding goal of $50k and currently sits at over $70K. It looks like the Waka Waka may have a very successful future. What do you think about the Waka Waka Power?

I wonder how long that would take to charge.

Hey Stephen: in 6 hrs in New York (app. 50 degrees latitude) battery will be 75% full. So it will be totally full in a whole day.

Seems kinda cool, but not really feeling the design all that much.

It doesn't look like Fozzy Bear.
