  • Each team member in 3rd Place will receive a USB Solar-Powered Charger!

The Device that started a movement

Choose the CLASSIC2 for its large battery size to provide power to multiple devices while on the go. Powers phones, e-readers, tablets and even bike lights, water purifiers, GPS watches, headlamps and more USB-powered electronics

A day of direct sunlight on the CLASSIC2 captures enough energy for three charges for most smartphones or tops-off most tablets from half-depleted to a full battery. The CLASSIC2 features a full-sized USB port allowing thousands of devices to easily connect just as they do to a USB wall charger.

The iconic Solio design has been updated with more battery capacity while larger solar panels allow for more energy capture than ever before.

Anything: Simply connect to the CLASSIC2 using your device’s own USB charging cable.

Anytime:  Holds charge for up to a year. The CLASSIC2 will give most smartphones 3 complete charges.

Anywhere: Charge the CLASSIC2 from the Sun, USB port, or the wall.

“Sundial” for energy capture

The ingenious design of the Solio CLASSIC2 allows a pencil to be inserted into a central pivot point to make it possible to track the sun like a sundial. Simply point the CLASSIC2 towards the sun and rotate it until the pencil no longer casts a shadow. Adjust the position of the CLASSIC2 each time the pencil casts a shadow for maximum solar capture efficiency. A full day in full-sun completely charges the battery.
