Do you want to charge your iPhone from the sun now?


While many people dream about the appearance of solar panels in the future iPhone , American engineers embody the old utopia. As reported by Engadget, recently in New York, the operator AT & T opened the first free charging station for mobile devices. The apparatus is not powered by a conventional power supply and solar batteries.

The station is equipped with both new interfaces Lightning, and the usual 30-pin connectors for previous generations of the iPhone and iPad. In addition, there is also present microUSB connector and a regular USB for charging smartphones and tablets on the Android, Windows Phone or BlackBerry. So do not be surprised if sipping morning coffee and charging your iPhone on a similar “gas station”, the next will be happy (probably) the owner of Galaxy S IV.


Surprisingly, the solar station can not just simply charge the device – it stores the energy of using a special battery capacity of 168 Wh. If we consider that in New York is not always sunny weather, users will appreciate the opportunity to charge the smartphone. Indeed, sometimes there are moments when you need to urgently take an important call, and the charge level of the iPhone at zero .

Of course, in the winter such a device is not likely to be in demand, as the stand for about 20 minutes in the cold no one wants. In the future, AT & T wants to install several such stations in San Francisco and Washington.

It would be great if one of the Russian operators spent a year experiment. Recently in Moscow is kept abnormally hot weather, so powered charging station will have no problems. Technology, all in the palm – you only get a desire to spend a certain amount of money for the benefit of society. But this is just all so hard.

We do not have to wait for a miracle, if Apple will add to the future iPhone solar panels. In addition, rumors have long.
