About

The Challenge 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. Solution The solution is a portable solar cellphone charger . This is a personal solar power station, combining solar energy and storage battery into a smart USB-enabled device. Designed for high temperature environments of the emerging markets the MO-PWR offers the only affordable, reliable and sustainable power solution for the emerging markets mobile network and wider digital ecosystem .
