Charging your phone just got a whole lot easier and more energy-efficient with XD Design’s [2] brilliant solar charger, which sticks to windows to maximize its exposure to the sun’s rays. Instead of having to follow the sunlight by moving theĀ solar-powered [3] gadget around the room, users can simply stick the thin charger to the inside of a glass window and leave it to soak up sunlight.

With the photovoltaic panels [4] facing out of a window, the other end of the cool little device can be placed in the shade, leaving your cellphone free to absorb the sun’s rays and charge up. The design is small and light, and at only 0.68 inches thick the window solar charger doesn’t protrude too much from the window pane and remains unobtrusive.
