Designers Kyuho Song & Boa Oh have developed the brilliant solar power window socket, a portable device intended to enable you to use electricity freely and conveniently in a space restricted in the use of electricity, such as a plane, a car, and outdoors. The Solar Power Socket attaches easily to any window and is charged with solar energy that is then converted into electric energy through a converter. Yes, we have seen countless models of solar batteries and adapters for smartphones, laptops, tablet computers and other gadgets, but this is the first time we are actually seeing a direct solar plug-in.

All you have to do is attach the socket to the nearest window during a sunny day and plug any device, just the same as you would do with a standard mains socket and you are ready to go. Running your electronic devices on pure solar energy is free and good for the environment and brings a very cool, natural vibe to your daily life. This Solar Power Socket is environmentally-friendly, extremely easy to use and, just like all truly brilliant devices, rather simple in design. The solar socket will be able to retain the charge accumulated in a 1000mAh battery, enough to power a mobile phone or tablet.

Once the Solar Power Socket is fully charged, which takes about five to eight hours, remove the Solar Power Socket and you have yourself a handy little outlet-on-the-go that maintains its charge for 10 hours.

This concept really appeals to us because we can see our staff placing these on their window during the day, and using them at night to charge their smartphones or tablets. Every bit of energy we can take off the power grid and replace with clean energy is a huge win. This clever product is currently in concept stage, with the designers looking to improve storage capacity and efficiency.
