Hey Everybody, thanks for your support!

I know that so many of you are really into Solar Power and other renewable energy, and we wanted to see about getting a little something out to you guys.

My friend, Josh, and I have been doing a lot of work creating a neat solar energy product. When we aren't doing that, we are at a lot of teaching conferences, renewable energy fairs, and educational events, promoting renewable energy and getting kids to learn all about it.

Any profits from the projects all go right back into getting info and inspiration out there!

What would really help us is if you can help spread the Solar Panel Kickstarter Campaign on your social networks! If you can share the link https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-solar-charger

On Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and whatever else you are on, we would love it. Like, Share, Friend, Tweet, just help get the word out there. (It may also help you win the solar panel.... hint hint....)

We are real people, in the real world, trying both to do good and squeak by a living as well.

For your entertainment, here's some solar panel testing we did with a bowling ball.



We also did a little experimenting on solar panels with shotguns....



Enjoy, and please help spread the word.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-solar-charger

-Ben

Also, for those who were wondering what prices would be AFTER the Kickstarter campaign. They are most likely to be about what the pledge levels are for the "NON-Early Bird" products.

However, the more orders we can get through in Kickstarter will allow us to manufacture more at once, and hopefully give us a price break. Theoretically, the more people who help support the Kickstarter, the lower we can keep prices later.

If you CAN pledge in the Kickstarter campaign, please do.

Thanks again.

Also: we're running the same contest on EcoRenovator, so if you want 2 chances to win, head over there as well and pipe up.

I'd say the odds are already excellent. Twice as excellent if you're in to win on both sites.

I was out and about yesterday and needed to charge my phone. Ironically, I couldn't charge my phone from my (newish) electric motorcycle.

Fortunately, I had my solar panel with, and it worked great, even with as cloudy of a day as it was! (Somebody else needed a charge, so I charged her phone too!)



Once again, if you can please help get the word out on this USB solar charger we would really appreciate it.
Please share! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-solar-charger

Did I mention the panel is waterproof?

Heck, you could go ice fishing with it. Look what I caught!
