Electricity used annually by the 170 million iPhone 5’s purchased in the next 12 months can power all the homes in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for a year

battery-renewable-2By 2014, it is expected that 7.3 billion cell phones will be in operation, guzzling up megawatts of precious energy resources and costing billions of dollars in the process. In fact, according to LifeHacker Magazine, the electricity used annually by the 170 million iPhone 5’s purchased over the next 12 months can power all the homes in Cedar rapids, Iowa for an entire year. That’s a lot of energy for such a large city with a population of more than 128,000.
Many people have taken steps to do their part by using personal solar chargers to power up their smart phones, iPads, and tablets. For $149, you can take the plunge to get off the grid by purchasing a JOOS Orange which many feel is the best personal charger on the market today.
Receiving numerous awards and accolades from the Consumer Electronics Association, WIRED Magazine, and others, the JOOS stands out from the crowd with its efficient monocrystalline solar cell, clean and minimalistic design, ease of operation, and of course its patented low-light circuitry, allowing the user to capture solar energy even in low light situations.
