“Make it diverse. Make it surprising. Make it memorable.” So says the mantra of XD Design studio, a group of 9 clever designers whose objective is to support the brand “differentiate itself by being surprisingly sensible.” Although solar power is nothing at all new, the expansion of its utility and improvement of its effectiveness is always a fun — not to mention heartening — point to watch. And now, a single of the most ubiquitous daily sources of power drain we modern humans spot on the earth is getting eradicated via a smart little gadget courtesy of those surprisingly wise designers: a solar-powered telephone charger. Simplistic, minimalist and frankly rather beautiful in its design, the charger actually comes in a number of iterations our favorites are the Port and the Window, shown here. Both will charge your smartphone or mp3 player with a 1400-megaHertz rechargeable lithium battery and a small bit of aid from the sun. These sensible transportable solar phone chargers are one thing to see, and most undoubtedly some thing to use, more than and more than and over again, with zero guilt over power consumption and perhaps even a slightly smug sense of superiority more than the reality that your gadgetry is truly a factor of beauty, both aesthetically and philosophically as well.
