Stick This Portable Outlet To Your Window To Start Using Solar Power!

The solar panels suck energy from the sun. The charger converts that energy into electricity. You plug in to the charger.You can just stick this portable outlet to your window to start using solar power! So far we have seen solutions that act as a solar battery backup, but none as a direct plug-in. Simple in design, the plug just attaches to any window and does its job intuitively.

According to the designers, Kyuho Song & Boa Oh: “We tried to design a portable socket, so that users can use it intuitively without special training.”


Stick This Portable Outlet To Your Window To Start Using Solar Power!It's a portable socket that gets its power from the sun rather than the grid. You plug into a window instead of into the wall.

It's easy. The solar panels suck energy from the sun. The charger converts that energy into electricity. You plug in to the charger.

The Window Socket pulls solar power to an internal battery, which can be either used immediately or saved for use during night time hours or when you are away from the sun. After 8 hours of charging, the socket provides the user with 10 hours of electricity.

  1. Wouldn't mind having a unit twice this size with output for 3 prong American 110 volts output. I assume it has a micro inverter.

  6. I hope this outlet won't cost too much when it comes out on the market, cause I am very interested in purchase one, please!
    My email is [email protected] just in case

  8. Its good idea and design, but says here 10 hours of eletricity? Ha ha good joke.. Can you explain whitch kind of electric power? More important how strong is that power? From pic whit that device you can charge 2 batteries size AAA or AA..

  9. Does anyone here ever took physics class? Do you know how much 1000mAh means (it's less than half of your normal smartphone battery). And have you ever heard of AC vs DC, voltages and so on? Your regular phone charger is expecting 110/220 V AC at input.

    1. Have you taken an english class?

    2. That is it? That is your reply? I was hoping you had some answers instead of the usual child comment. No hope.

  10. I like to try. Sure it looks clever.

  11. Goed laat maar weten wanneer het op de markt komt. Fijn om mensen te zien die aan groene energie werken.

  12. Instead of citing 10h of power you might want to use units of measure that make sense, Volts and Milliamp Hours would be a good start...

  14. "After 8 hours of charging, the socket provides the user with 10 hours of electricity."

    This is yet another internet hoax.

  15. I don't want it to be a hoax its far too useful and why shouldn't it be real? you put solar panels on the roof why not stuck against a window?

  16. "I don't want it to be a hoax" - Doesn't change the fact that it is.

    Think for a second. The solar collector is roughly the same size as a solar powered LED walkway light. The walkway solar/battery combination runs a single LED (20ma) for 8-10 hours. That doesn't include the wasteful circuitry needed to change the DC battery voltage to the 100V AC used in Japan. If you were lucky, the amount of energy the puck could generate and store would run a laptop for less than one minute.

    Their "product" is a lie, plain and simple. If you want to believe, go ahead. It'll be a hoot to see what happens if you try to buy one!

  17. that wouldn't power much maybe one dim light at most

  18. Those that have posted about the actual physics involved are correct. I understand the idea of the device, but the real world application is much different. I actually have solar panels ready when I get the money to install them. Even when they are installed and taking about 150sq ft on the roof (65w per panel x 18 panels) I will only get about 10 to 15% of my power replaced which will be about 10 amps at 120V. In addition, many windows (like my house) have some form of LowE glass which decreases the amount of light entering thereby decreasing the amount of available charge...

    1. Try wind energy we have 3 windmills and 2 smaller solar pannels powers the hole house am planning on putting up one more windmill and we will never have to use the generator as backup again

    2. Put a windmill in our community and see what happens. Nope, not going to work. Pleasing the eye is more important than pleasing the world. No getting around that for at least 100 years.

  19. I would really like one of these.. mainly for hiking treks to charge phone and gps. After reading some of the comments regarding the physics I'm not so sure anymore...

  20. From the picture, this device is about 8 cm in diameter, which means that total area of its solar panel is around 0.005 m2. Currently, most efficient mass produced solar cells have energy density around 175W/m2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_panel). This means, that you can get about 0.875 Watts of energy from this device. Most devices need more power to be "switched off" (http://www.edho.com/power/).
    Even if solar panels reach the maximum of possible efficency (http://hypertextbook.com/facts/1998/ManicaPiputbundit.shtml - 1400 W/m2), then considering power losses due to conversions, batteries, windows and wires this device is hardly useful.

  21. yes this is a good discussion ..I will bring it to others that have solar panels for salesolar panels for sale
