Sun or wind may have been the most sustainable sources of energy but solar panels and wind turbines aren’t the ideal replacement, due to their lofty costs, for fossil fuel and thermal power. However, we still may fulfill our small energy needs from sustainable sources, until we find economical ways to harness solar and wind power. Ravi, which is another name in the Hindu religion for the life-giving Sun God, is a portable solar generator that will fulfill your small energy requirements and le you live a sustainable life. All you have to do is place the portable solar generator outdoors, either in the garden or terrace, during daytime. Taking a cue from nature, Ravi (while unwrapped) looks like a flower with solar panels inside the petals. The solar panels harness enough power to charge all your portable electronic gadgets of daily use.
Ravi is a concept charger for small gadgets that will encourage you to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
The portable solar generator not just helps you to adhere to an eco-friendly lifestyle, but also fulfills basic energy requirements by powering all the small gadgets required in day-to-day life.
