There is no denying the fact that the mobile phone industry is one of the fastest evolving technology industries in the world. This is the reason we see a lot of innovations in the field of mobile communications. However, at a time when the global environment is witnessing the perils of climate change, energy required to recharge all these devices is causing a problem for the electricity grid. Though, the electricity required to juice up your device every day isn’t much, the sheer number of cell phones that are currently being used all over the world, causes a major drain of energy. Like always, mobile phone manufacturers were quick to come up with new cell phones, which make use of solar energy to help you recharge your device off-the-grid. Here are some of the best solar powered cell phones that hint towards a future where mobile devices won’t ship with wall chargers.
