For people living off-grid, getting their phone charged can be frustrating. Charging a phone can waste one day every week. They must travel to the nearest charging station, which can mean a costly bus ride or hours of walking. Then they wait for their phones to charge, and sometimes do this twice a week.

Off-grid power is also expensive. Charging your phone five times off-grid, costs the same as a year using grid power.
