Eco-Chic Table Doubles As a Charging Station

In honor of Earth Day, I challenge each and every one of you to think of ways to get greener — like decreasing your power consumption, reusing packaging and by recycling your old gadgets. Although this sleek looking SOLo Lounge Table by iF may not be the most practical way to show Mother Earth some love, it is truly impressive.

Being able to hold over 17 kilowatts of solar energy every year if situated outdoors, this table can provide power to the equivalent of 6,300 mobile phone charges, 8,400 digital camera charges, or 168 laptop computer charges each year. . . Leaving little impact on the earth and your checkbook. Aside from boasting a super charging solar panel, this table also offers information on the tabletop LCD display as well as between computers and on the internet via a wireless connection. Now that is what I call eco-geek-chic.

i wonder how much energy it could suck up inside with lots and lots of sunlight pouring in from windows - would people feel better about it then (so your gadgets would only be exposed a maximum of a few hours?!) i think it is very eco-geek-chic, for sure. i like the height, as you could put it outside in front of a bench or settee which most people would have outside.

You're supposed to keep most gadgets out of direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Your gadgets will fry from overheating before they get charged by the solar power. I wish there was a table that sucks heat from my laptop and uses it to make power. Now that would be practical.

I love it as a coffee table; it'd do well in a solarium or Florida room, where there's tons of sunshine all day!
