Solar powered chargers are the latest fashion. We’ve seen jackets, backpacks and other devices that promise you to charge your gadgets. The Prometeo just seems more useful.

The inherent problem with solar-powered air conditioners is that solar panels aren’t efficient enough to power the power hungry machines on their own.
