Charge All Your Devices With a Solar-Powered Bonsai Tree - Hot Penguin If you’ve got a lot of gadgets–and who doesn’t these days?–you know that it can be difficult to keep track of all of their different chargers, not to mention hard to find outlet space to plug them in. One stylish former Kickstarter project aims to solve that problem while also beautifying your space. The electree+ is billed as “part sculpture, part appliance” because it mixes form and function, offering a practical product–a multi-unit solar charger–with a beautiful form. The product was inspired by bonsai trees and nature’s fractal patterns, with 27 square silicon solar panels on each tree and a 14,000mAh internal battery that stores enough power to recharge an iPhone nine times or an iPad2 twice. Power is provided through two USB ports and a Qi wireless charging zone that works with most smart phones and can be adapted to work with iPhones.
