SolCube powers your campsite with the sun

Solar energy that’ll boil the kettle
13 June 2017

At its advent, the solar cell seemed to answer all of humanity’s questions. Alas, it soon became apparent that cramming one onto a tiny puck wouldn’t banish the backup battery from your tent. SolCube (from €799, Indiegogo) changes all of that. This cube and panel combo gathers energy from the sun’s lumens, before storing it in a battery ready for your consumption. And it’ll actually be worth it, too: the SolCube Standard, for example, can keep your beer fridge running for up to 6 hours on a single charge. Want to boost your recharge rate? Stack together two medium solar modules for pro light harvesting.
