Solar Mobile Cover Charger
Explain your idea in details:
The sun is a huge source of energy which has only recently been tapped into. In recent years, it was discovered that the power of the sun can be collected and stored, to be used on a global scale with the purpose of eventually replacing the conventional sources of energy. As the world is turning its focus to cleaner power, solar energy has seen a significant rise in importance. Solar energy is a renewable form of energy emitted by the sun that can be utilized for numerous purposes by humans, present everywhere. The main objective of this idea is to provide flexibility and easy accessibility to people to charge their phones when they are out while keeping the product reliable, efficient and affordable. People need a charger to charge their phone's battery but what if the chargers that they are using aren't reliable. Chargers whether wall charger or portable chargers can sometimes deliver the voltage higher or lower than what your phone requires, so charging with the wrong voltage can cause real damage to your phone's battery. The idea is to offer a product which will make people free from such hurdles. The solar panel attached on the cover will absurd the solar energy when it will be exposed to sunlight and it will then covert the solar energy into DC electric current which would be utilized to charge the battery through USB charging cable.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The use of a solar mobile cover charger perfectly embodies the definition of sustainability as the sun's energy can be used indefinitely without damaging its future availability. Solar products are ecofriendly that is, it does not cause any sort of harm making the environment free from hazardous pollution. The idea will have the following impact on sustainable development; 1) The implementation of this idea will create awareness among people regarding the use of renewable energy specially solar related products. 2) The product will be very effective in countries where there is plenty of sunlight especially in Pakistan, so the future outlook for the solar mobile cover charger looks good. 3) The use of this product will be non polluting i.e. solar power usage does not emit any green house gasses and harmful waste making the world a healthy and a safe place for future generations. 4) The implementation of idea will create employment opportunities. 5) Considering the total number of cell phone users in Pakistan, it will save a huge energy used in mobile charging.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
With so many concerns being addressed by solar mobile cover charger, the collective support of multiple companies, investors will be more efficient than undertaking to solve all those concerns alone. In order to achieve our financial goal and to penetrate in the market we expect prices to be percent cost saving than those already existing in the market. Currently there are no collaborators yet and I am actively looking for funding to turn this great idea into a reality. All the raw materials required to manufacture the product will be 100% outsourced. The potential market will be determined by number of people who have access or own mobile phones that will enable them to use the product. Adding the cost, the total cost of material per piece will be 158.57 PKR. We will hire 5 technical labour on daily wage. We will also hire electronic engineer who will supervise their working and will be responsible for technical work. After the sale services will also be provided to create customer value.
