Cell phones are great, there's no argument there. But no matter how cutting-edge these phones become, there's one aspect no phone company ever seems to improve on, the battery.
No matter how much you spend on your phone, or how careful you are about how you charge it. Within a few months, your battery can barely hold a full charge for a day.
Wouldn't it be great if you could charge your phone on-the-go, throughout the day, without having to plug it in? Well, now you can, thanks to a new gadget invented by a Montreal-based start-up.
This is the Uvolt Watch.It has been namedin the top 50 most innovative energy startups
.But this isn't just a "smartwatch". It is a unique, wearable watch, that makes it possible to charge your electronic devices using solar power and wireless energy.
The Uvolt Watch seamlessly stores energy collected from the sun, which can be used anywhere at any time to charge your phone.
The Uvolt features a battery pack that can store up to 30% of your phone's battery life. This battery can be connected directly to your phone, or you can use it to charge your device wirelessly.
But this is so much more than just a useful product, it's a statement that clean energy should be a part of our everyday lives.
