About

The idea of the Recycled Solar Charger™ came to our marketing director whose hobbies are vast; from attending the fine Jacksonville Symphony to screaming for Gravedigger at the annual Monster Jam truck races. One of his hobbies is sailing and while preparing for a 3 day race across the Gulf of Mexico, the noticeable problem of being able to recharge his iPhone and iPod while out at sea became quite apparent.

A quick search for a product to solve this problem revealed that there is not much on the market and two things were interesting about what was available. The first noticeable element was that anything of quality and that was believable to recharge an iPhone or Droid was expensive. Approaching $200 and found only on camping specialty web sites. The second observation is that all these units are built with an on-board li-ion battery. This struck us as being redundant. Why carry a solar charger that has another battery to recharge first? To then use this on-board battery to recharge my iPhone or other USB device. It seems that this will only add time to the process.
Once we had a working Recycled Solar Charger™ prototype circuit and knew we could make it work we began working on models on how to house and make the unit user friendly. About this time we had just finished a large outdoor marketing campaign that used a ton of 20mil vinyl billboard material. After talking with the folks at the billboard company about how degradable it is (not very) and what they do with it (recycle? Not really.) We thought this might be a win for our charger and our landfills.


Products And Services

We have long been big supporters of the 37signals guy’s concept of scratching your own itch. We wondered if it was possible to build a charger that would charge direct; without an on-board battery, and retail for under $100. So we began to prototype models and circuits that eliminate the battery and would charge a cell phone, iPod or other USB device directly.
