Solar energy is getting a lot of love lately which is great! This sustainable energy option is just one more way we’re making the earth a better place for tomorrow. If you’ve ever wanted to get down and dirty with this, Your Solar USB Kit is the hands-on way to learn more about solar energy.
This is a teaching kit that should appeal to the makers and DIY-ers out there. The small kit comes with everything you need to build your own solar USB charger. This includes 12 solar cells. Soldering irons, tabbing wire, solder, frames, batteries and USB connectors as well as all other electronic components.
The goal of this small kit is to make a charger, obviously, but also to really learn how to work with solar panels to break down design barriers for young (and not so young) makers. It’s being Kickstarted and if it meets its goal hopes to be able to deliver by Christmas. The Early Bird Kit is about $37.
