Off-grid computer invites you to dream up charging methods


Here’s a green idea. How about forgetting the high power consuming computers you use everyday and invest in something that will save you lots in utility cash. The “Aleutia E1” desktop, designed for use in rural Africa consumes only 8W of power, which is 4% of what your typical 600W desktop machine powers from. It even runs from a solar panel, and its internal drive is a standard CF card. See how inventive you can get with finding interesting ways to power it.
