Startup News

Weighing less than a pound, the Veiled Solar Charger is made of handpicked Sapele hardwood, uses 3.0 charging technology, and keeps mobile devices running 24/7, regardless of weather.

After more than two years in research in development, Veiled Group Limited, through Kickstarter, is thrilled to release the world's first wooden, truly portable solar charger. Crafted with sustainable Sapele hardwood and slightly bigger than a small notebook, the Veiled Solar Charger boasts excellent battery life, rapid-charging 3.0 technology, and the ability to charge two mobile devices at once via two USB ports.

“When we designed the Veiled Solar Charger, we knew it was about so much more than aesthetics. It had to work better than anything out there, so that every client could rely on it to charge their phones, tablets, Go Pros, iPods or other devices,” said Rafaela – the founder. “We've taken a unique, minimalist design and given it a performance boost. Now you can throw your ultra-stylish Veiled Solar Charger in a bag, charge it and your devices with direct sunlight, or do the same by plugging into a wall. You can also store your charge for later – it's entirely up to you.”

From a materials perspective, wood was chosen for its low thermal coefficient. With wood, the Veiled Solar Charger's 10,000 mAh battery stays at a moderate temperature, delivering an even, steady charge. Veiled Solar Charger automatically stops charging when your devices are full, protecting the battery for your iPhone or Android from overcharging damage. Veiled Solar Charger also shuts off automatically when you disconnect your devices.

Through the Kickstarter campaign, donors can order Veiled for $69 and receive the charger, a meter-long charging cable of choice, a USB C to USB A adapter, and an instruction manual. Donors can also choose from two different shades of wood. For more information or to buy the Veiled Solar Charger, visit the Kickstarter site.
