Most of us can attest to the annoyance when our smartphone runs out of battery life the moment we are engaged in an important conversation, or when we are setting about the even more important task of uploading our latest selfie to Facebook. And then there is the hassle involved in carrying around bulky cables and cords that always seem to get tangled, forcing us to waste hundreds of hours over the course of a lifetime untangling them. Fortunately, Surge Solar’s Gidgi Solar Case promises to eliminate all of these inconveniences.
Solar-powered peripherals are nothing new. However, most of them are plagued by poor charging performance, unsightly appearance, and materials that are often sub-par. Fortunately, Surge Solar has done their research and have come up with a charging case that’s stylish, made of durable materials, and above all, boasts the ability to directly and indirectly charge your phone for significant gains in power.
With a scratch resistant solar panel on both sides of a bullet proof case, the Gidgi’s hidden USB port connects directly to your mobile phone to provide a continuous supply of energy. A USB cord is also provided to accommodate a variety of devices.
Best of all, the Gidgi is not limited to just charging your cellphone. In fact, Surge Solar emphasizes that their product can charge almost any device on the go.
“It’s about time that people see solar power for its convenience rather than for its off the grid appeal. We are proving that you can use solar to charge your gadgets AND do it with style. We see Gidgi as a catalyst for a stylish solar movement,” says James Deringer.
Surge Solar LLC is run by founders James Deringer and John Bisgaard. They are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to perfect and market this technology.
