“Two college kids trying to save the world”. That’s the slogan put forth by the team who designed SPOR, and they might very well succeed in that endeavor. SPOR is a self-regenerating solar battery charger and power system for USB devices that can either be charged by an outlet or passively via the sun. It can charge multiple devices at once, and can charge a phone practically as fast as a wall outlet can. Additionally, the device’s shell is customizable to suit anyone’s tastes: it can be 3D-printed from any material you can find, in any color imaginable. How cool is that?
Founders David Hunt and Jason Browne created SPOR with the goal of making energy more accessible, portable, and affordable for the global population. By empowering people through technological access and powering more of the world’s energy consumption via distributed, clean energy networks, we can take a bite out of the fossil fuel grid one device user at a time.
This amazing product can revolutionize solar power around the world, and a little support from all of us can make it happen. Check out their Kickstarter page to learn more about how you can help SPOR spread the power!
