Interesting concept. A portable power socket you attach to a window to harness solar energy.

Christopher, APPARENTLY, you lost the idea behind this. You’re shortsightedness didn’t allow you to see that it’s not supposed to have a battery. It’s a SOLAR Charger, not a battery charge used to charge something else. If you put a battery, you drive up cost and parts. It’s not meant for cloudy weather or nighttime use. It’s just something that you can use when there’s sun. So, if you live in Alaska, where there’s 6 months of darkness, then this product won’t be a good investment 6 months out of the year. This is probably the best idea I’ve seen in a while, besides the back pack solar charger. The only thing I would say is, make a small stand in case I don’t have a window.
