Of all the new cell phone charger concepts you can now carry around with you, it doesn’t help the fact that sometimes, we have to scramble when we need to call someone or check a map because we just don’t have a place to charge. Brooklyn-based design company, Pensa, has developed a concept that provides an elegant solution the urbanite’s problem with their Street Phone Charger concept, StreetCharge.
According to Pensa:
In our urban environments, we are often in need of a quick place to recharge. Most of us have been out of juice at one time or another. Often, when our devices run out of power, we just need 5 minutes to make a quick call, send a message or check a map. Similarly, we often need a brief respite to recharge ourselves. StreetCharge is a solar powered installation. It provides charging, lighting and a place to rest, integrating with the existing structure of a standard street sign.

As a current New Yorker, I’m absolutely in love with this concept and the answer it provides for everyone, since you might be the unlucky one who isn’t near a Starbucks when you need a quick 5 minute charge. The shelf is made from local and reclaimed materials. And solar-powered, too? Green and sustainable!
