Smartphone accessories (AKA techcessories) are getting really鈥 well,聽smarter聽lately, aren鈥檛 they?聽From聽smart smartphone cases聽to a snap bracelet phone, there are a ton of ways to make your tech look good聽and聽function better. Plus, who doesn鈥檛 need a LEGO calendar that corresponds with your smartphone? Another tech accessory you might聽actually聽need is SolarBook, a new notebook that doubles as an on-the-go phone charger.


If you鈥檙e someone who carries a notebook everywhere you go anyway, this might be the perfect product. It鈥檚 a lightweight, colorful (and super cute) journal equipped with a USB port that can charge your phone or tablet. It鈥檚 able to charge an iPhone in about two hours, which is about the same time a wall charger takes, the SolarBook team tells us.

As an added bonus, the notebook is environmentally friendly. It uses a solar panel that鈥檚 super efficient and advanced, while also being really lightweight 鈥斅爄t鈥檚 only 0.7mm thin!聽鈥斅燼nd detachable. 鈥淏ackers can feel confident that they are reducing their carbon footprint,鈥 the team tells us.


The SolarBook team launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund production on May 23 and they鈥檝e raised over half their goal. SolarBooks will eventually be available for $39, but early-bird backers get a deal at $29. We suggest you head over to Kickstarter now!
