WakaWaka Power is your personal pocket-sized solar power station
Having easy access to light and power is something we in the developed world take for granted, but for many people across the globe, it’s not easy or cheap, and often unavailable all together. An estimated 1.5 billion people on our planet are living off of the grid, illuminating their lives with dirty (and expensive) kerosene lanterns and having to constantly search for a place to charge their mobile phones.
A solar-powered solution that can provide not only bright and efficient lighting, but also store enough power to charge cell phones and other gadgets goes a long way toward reducing energy poverty, and WakaWaka Power can do all of that, while also fitting into a tiny space.
WakaWaka, which means “shine bright” in Swahili, initially produced their efficient solar LED solution, WakaWaka Light, thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign, and are now producing the WakaWaka Power, which takes that concept a step further.
