Build Your Very Own Pokémon Themed Phone Charger

Build Your Very Own Pokémon Themed Phone Charger

An industrious Pokémon Go fan has created an appropriately themed phone charging station for all your monster-catching escapades.

Spencer Kern – the creator – made the charger resemble a Pokécenter Through a mixture of woodwork, 3D printing, and some electronics, he created the following:

The shell houses a solar generator, which allegedly stores enough electricity to charge 10 – 12 phones simultaneously. Here’s a shot of the invention in the wild:

Kern shared the project online, so if you’re the DIY-type you can follow along and make your very own.

That is super awesome! Haha if you look up the Yeti 400 solar battery it's based around though, the solar panel is like a metre square. It's totally cool, but a car battery charged at home overnight might be just as practical.

You could see him selling this to stores which drop lures in order to pull in passing trade. Charge phone here + grab your coffee. It would be an awesome idea for the current craze.

Well the stores could just have normal wall power outlets, but yeah.

True they could but this would make an event of it. If your business was in a high traffic pokemon area this could be the way to have 1 over your competition in order to get the consumer dollar.
