Charging phones, the solar way
The solar bank seems to be a plug in the show. Meet its make. . .
Over the past decade, people have realized that reducing, reusing, and recycling space is clearly an hour\'s need.
Especially in the past few years, there has been an increasing trend in the implementation of the concept of \"upward circulation\", which is actually defined as \"the process of converting by-products, waste materials \", for better environmental value, useless unwanted products become new materials or products.
\"Recently held an event called\" kabaad mela \"at the Phoenix market in Mumbai, showcasing feature-rich but interesting projects;
The best entries have been selected as part of a competition hosted by Proinnovate, a company based on educational innovation.
Among the various items on display, there is a multi-gene raincoat (
Use waste plastic bags), paper lamps (
Using used newspapers)
Cupative Lantern (
Use discarded glasses)
However, it is the solar bank that caught our attention. Designed by 26-year-
Old architect Ankush Tripathi, the solar bank is made of waste materials from discarded objects.
He explained, \"I used 5-
Watt solar panels and 6 v (5 Amp)
Functional batteries of this model.
But the base of these things is made of scrap. -
The solar panel frame and socket accessories are made of waste frame plate and PVC barrel drum;
While the retractable position is made by the scrap selfie stick.
Even the screws used in this model are made of waste screws.
\"While the idea has had seeds since April, it took him about 10 days to assemble it for the competition.
So, what prompted him to create this pattern, \"I am from a small village in Allahabad, where there is often a power outage;
So when I go to visit my parents, charging my gadgets is a huge problem.
That\'s what I thought-
A concept of sustainable energy that can be used in most parts of India, especially in rural areas of India.
He explained that since India is a tropical country, there is ample natural solar energy supply for at least 300 days a year.
As a developing country, he believes that India must innovate in ways that contribute to energy and waste management issues.
This solar bank can take a year.
Round, minimal maintenance, designed to provide the basic power needed for a family of four.
Currently, the model has a USB port to charge the phone and also a reading light is connected.
Tripathi plans to work further by adding two additional lights, a socket to charge the laptop and a device to connect the portable speakers.
He also plans to apply for a patent for the idea.
He concluded, \"I\'m still working on this model and I plan to make it customizable so people in rural areas can be handy.
I also hope that the government will support this solar model more because it will help solve the problem of energy consumption and waste generated. . \"
