Well, to maybe 1.5 billion people who do not have electrical power at home or nomadic shelter right now. It is a super efficient solar panel and lamp plus it can load your cellphone or tablet. Power and light from the sunlight and even during clouded days.
You know how important cellphones in the developing world are. To power them up however is quite a problem for many. They value the mobile phone device in their life more than we can imagine in the rich countries. And light at night is very significant for reading and learning of school children, which makes a huge difference from dirty and dangerous oil lamps with expensive fuel.
The “WakaWaka Power” device was developed in the Netherlands with kickstarter funding and is now manufactured in Haiti, see: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wakawakalight/wakawaka-power-the-best-compact-solar-power-statio and see the video on that page.
Order one now and from your payment another will be delivered to a refugee camp in Haiti or Syria (in collaboration with the UNHCR) for free.
In my opinion these devices will make a huge difference in many people’s lives. And.. even in your life!! Buy one, first deliveries in May just before your holiday for power to your own cellphone and Wi-Fi connection.
Maybe it is a good GREEN idea for Apple Computers Inc to package a WakaWakaPower with each iPhone ?
