If you are planning to go off the grid soon, then you should rush over to Kickstarter and pledge a few dollars on the WakaWaka Power Project. With 13 days to go, the WakaWaka Power project has drawn an impressive number of backers and dollars.

It’s not surprising because mobility is what the modern digital lifestyle is all about. But you need an energy source to power up all those devices when you are on the road. WakaWaka Power is at its most basic a solar charger. But unlike common solar chargers, it brings a lot of features to the table.

WakaWaka Power can charge any smartphone or tablet – from a Samsung to an iPhone.  The developers claim a 200% efficiency benchmark over any other solar charger in the market. The secret sauce is in the chip and the power management program of the mini-power station. Apart from its role as a smartphone charger, WakaWaka Power is also a table-top light source which can provide you with up to 100 hours of reading light – on a single day’s solar charge.

WakaWaka Power is in the prototype stage now, but quite close to its official launch. The developers are also hoping that contributions to the project via Kickstarter will also help them to light up the lives of Haitians after the devastation of the 2010 earthquake. Kickstarter backers can still earn themselves a handsome discount when the project comes out into the sun.

We expect the suggested retail price for WakaWaka Power will be $79, starting from May 2013. For all you backers, the price will be $69 and for early birds even $49! (nearly 40% discount…) – WakaWaka

    Even if we do not have much sun at the moment I hope we will when it is delivered in May

      I have that advantage of ample amount of sunlight year long as of for staying in a Tropical city - Kolkata, India. The only paradoxical situation is these products never reach our shores and are probably readily available in places where getting sunlight itself is a challenge as probably like at your place. :)

    There has been a recent very successful kickstarter project, which has goone live a couple of weeks back. I really want to use the product as it will help me a lot in my work scope as I evaluate and test video over the web for a website. That requires a lot of data and bandwidth. I have a cable broadband and a 3G datacard and I work from home now. Get the combined throughput from both the connection will be great, and this is exactly what Connectify Dispatch does. I have been running from pillar to post to get a review or article on the product as unfortunately they do not have a trial version and I do not want to invest almost INR5000 blindly. Kindly do a test and review of the product as lot of users require such a solution. The website address is . Also would be great, if we can get a reward or giveaway of the product. Please, please, please!!! I am sorry to be so repetitive and insistent with this software as I really want to use it, if it is a good solution. I wouldn't mind investing the money for the right solution.
