There’s a green wave taking over the world, that’s undeniable. For good reason we suppose, though it’s also hard to deny that it’s taking quite some time to catch on. Solar charging for instance is but a tiny fraction of the ways in which we get our electronics replenished. There are many reasons for this, and we won’t get into them here. What’s important is that there are companies coming up with incentives constantly. Take the Changers charging kit as an example. It consists of a solar panel and a base station which contains a battery. Once that internal battery is full, you can use it to charge up your gadgets. It has enough juice for 2 iPhones, or another multiple of several USB rechargeable devices. But what’s more important than that is the social and monetary aspect.
With your permission, the Changers kit will Tweet and otherwise share your eco-behavior with your circles. It will also give you points for doing so. You can then exchange these points for… stuff. What exactly isn’t clear at this point.
The kit is $150 and is up for pre-order now with shipping starting on November 15.
