On beat solar headphones charges your headphones and phones

New solar technology lets your headphones charge your smartphone,something we really need in Africa as there is plenty Sun and no power supply. On with the beat we go with this Kickstarter project – the OnBeat Solar Headphones. As the name implies, there is a solar panel on the band of the headphones, allowing it to capture sunlight and transform it into energy, which is then stored in two light-weight Lithium Ion batteries. Pretty much any USB device can be charged with the reserved energy source, yet it is not certain how much juice you'll get from the OnBeat. Let's get technical. The solar cell's surface is 55 cm3, which is expected to be gathering those sun rays during your daily jog, a walk through the park or just cruising to work. According to the developers, musical quality will be first-class: “a superb sound from low range for bass, mid-range for precision DJ'ing and high range for vocal and acoustic excellence”. Here's a listing of some of the parameters:
