About this project
Thanks for checking out the Solar Vox.
We need your help to bring a fantastic “green” sustainable energy product to market.
The Solar Vox originated from a desire to create an environmentally friendly product that Jim and I could easily manufacture, and share with the world. The idea of a Solar panel with a set of batteries is not new. But, the Solar Vox, an innovative, well designed, multifunctional, portable, and easy to use solar charger is! The Solar Vox is great for environmentally conscious individuals, techies, traveling, camping, hiking, backpacking and everyday use.
The Solar Vox is environmentally friendly. It is not a “Design for the Dump” product. It has user replaceable batteries and no proprietary connectors. The Solar Vox uses standard USB connectors, so you will not need additional USB cables to charge your device. It is easy to assemble and disassemble. And, the solar panel has a life span of over 10 years.
“Vox” is the Latin word for power, thus you have Solar Power. This is exactly what the Solar Vox is: a personal solar powered USB charger for your handheld devices that you love and use daily. It is great for devices such as, cell phones*, smart phones*, iPods, PSP’s and DS’s.
Solar Vox is small, rugged and optimally designed to recharge all your USB supported handheld devices. The unit’s design enables four optimum solar angles of 0°, 30°, 70° and 90 degrees, making it versatile any time of the day anywhere on globe. It uses standard rechargeable “AA” batteries found in stores through out the world. The Solar Vox is USB enabled and compliant.
So, here is where you come in. Our dream, as Detroit product designers, is to design and assemble products in the Motor City, one of the hardest hit economies in the US. Kickstarter is a great way for my partner, Jim and I to realize many of our ideas. We love designing exceptional gear that is practical and easy to use. We have several other ideas cooking on the back burner. But, first we need to get the Solar Vox into production. Your backer rewards will help us produce injection molding tooling and start production.
Please spread the word and share with your friends to help make our dream a reality. We hope you share our enthusiasm for the Solar Vox, and look forward to your support.
