Solar powered chargers and lights are not new, but when you do something valuable and helpful — that gets you noticed. That is what I liked about Wakka Wakka: the company is making solar products that help you along with helping people in 3rd world countries get power as well.
Wakka Wakka has on one end a solar panel that can charge the battery inside and give you over 40 hours of light. It can also charge devices if you need emergency power.
The device charges within 8 hours itself and is a perfect item for you boat, house or anywhere you need emergency power. The stand has a hole in it so you can set the charger on a bottle. That way you lift it off the window sill and get the solar device powered even faster.
Wakka Wakka also is helping in 3rd world countries that do not have a standard power grid. By powering these devices in the sun, they can charge their systems to make the day go faster. They also have lights for nighttime travel.
Best part is they are developing a full home emergency kit. The device is not released yet — you’ll have to watch the video for more information. In the meantime, go to www.getwakawaka.com for product lines.
The Techpodcasts crew has come out to cover the Consumer Electronics Show since 2007. In 2011, we chose to add a new level of coverage by putting together a livestream booth. For the last 3 years you could watch the show as it unfolded right through TPN.TV.
2014 will be no different. This year we will add a new element – YOU!
TPN.TV Crowdfund through FundAnything.com
We chose FundAnything as our Crowdfund platform for CES action. We are looking to cover at least $5,000 of the show. This will account for plane tickets, hotel rooms and other needs (taxi, car rental, shipping, etc).
With as little as $10, you can support our efforts at CES. For $25, we will send you a nice T-shirt that says “I’m a Backer TPN@CES 2014”. These shirts are made through CafePress.
Other cool backer gifts will be coupons for 80% off a canvas photo print at Cafe Press, a PLAY 25X TV mount from Omnimount.com, podcast coach time from Jeffrey Powers and Howtorecordpodcasts.com and much more!
Help Us Meet Our Goal!
The more you help means the more we can do for this year’s coverage. We want to be your primary source for CES 2014 with our best Independent coverage. So please check out the levels and back us at what you can spare.
