SunStash portable solar kit can keep you connected when your power goes off.

SunStash, a just-released project on the popular crowd-funding site Kickstarter, provides an innovative solar powered solution to frequent interruptions in the power grid. Created by Don Cayelli, one of the founding partners of electronic accessory maker Gomadic Corp, SunStash combines a powerful solar panel, a uniquely designed carrying case (which doubles as a stand) and a very high capacity lithium polymer power pack. With SunStash and a clear day, users can take the system anywhere, set it up easily, point the solar panel towards the sun and let the internal power pack stash away energy. Later, the power pack can be removed and used to charge everything from smartphones to laptops. “After hurricane Sandy, I saw lots of footage on TV of people crowding around power outlets at local coffee shops and thought there had to be a better way,” explains Don Cayelli. “SunStash’s power pack can readily solve that problem by recharging 6 smartphones (or more) on a single charge and can be easily recharged in less than a day with its solar panel.”
