  • ‘Window Socket’: Solar-Powered Plug Sticks To Window, Powers Anything

    A concept has been unveiled for a solar-powered battery that can be stuck to a window, charged and then used as a standard plug.   The Window Socket offers a neat way to harness solar energy and use it as a plug socket. So far we have seen solutions that act as a solar battery backup, but none as a direct plug-in. Simple in design, the plug just attaches to any window and does its job ...
