The analogy is right on target and it could get any more realistic than this one. The Solar phone charger we have here represents a tree, albeit a special tree of the like of the Japanese Ginkgo Tree, but a tree none the less. What could represent charging, eco-friendliness and energy generation better than a tree? XD Design’s Ginkgo Solar Tree comes with a 4,000 mAh rechargeable lithium battery that stores all your clean energy effectively. It offers an aluminum base and is made from bamboo and eco-friendly plastic. A cool LED indicator tells you when your battery is fully charged. Your USB cable needs to be simply plugged in and voila, in just two hours you will have a device that is fully charged.
From the looks of it, the docking station can comfortably accommodate even large gizmos. I love the design of the tree and somehow wish it would rotate and create an overkill of a product. But then again, it’s got to be still to absorb them sunrays.
