1.1 billion people across the globe have no electricity at home (source IEA), no lights, no power for cellphones, some have no running water or toilets, commodities we take for granted in the West. However, in many of these countries over 50% of the population have cellphones, an essential tool to communicate, shop, bank, and access the internet. In these developing countries, millions of people have to go to kiosks to charge their cellphones. Some pay 200x what power costs in the West. The challenge is producing an affordable, adaptable, portable source of power that can be easily accessible to the mass market.
