Why the product was created

Why we created the Solar Power Ball

The Solar Power Ball was designed to help anybody out that finds himself in a situation where there is no access to electricity and in desperate need to charge his phone. It had to be a light at the same time as it is such a basic need when you are left in the dark.

The product had to stand out in terms of design appeal as Bernard and Arnoud, SolarWorks! founders,  didn’t want to bring a product to the market that could in any way be associated with “poor man’s lamp”. So no lantern or torch designs. It had to be different. It had to become almost the “Apple” among the solar charging and lighting devices.

In terms of functionality Bernard and Arnoud realized that there was already a lot out there in the market. So how to stand out apart from the design appeal? They think the biggest challenge for solar products in general  is the unpredictability of the weather. The thought was: “whatever we do, it cannot be that people are left in the dark if there is cloudy weather. So if empty it had to charge fast. If there is no sun of a couple of days it had to be able to charge from a as wide as possible variety of power sources.”

And last not least: Bernard and Arnoud wanted the packaging to be re-usable. So no carton box or shrink wrap packaging but something that can be used after it has been opened.
