The “Mighty Mini” Kickstarter campaign is still underway, and it would be awesome to see this get funded!
The Mini is a seriously handy device — both a compact light AND a charging station for your smartphone. And there’s also the option of recharging the Mini through solar power.
The concept came about because the company founders were looking for innovative ways to bring lighting and charging station solutions to underdeveloped countries.
“Consider enough light to extend the work day and family time in parts of the world where light is something reserved for those who can afford diesel generators.”
The device is, in fact, useful in all parts of the world. The Mini can operate with standard AA sized rechargeable NiCd or NiMH (recommended) batteries, which are available everywhere. Despite its size, the Mighty Mini handles a lot!
