Bench made of recycled phones and Solar charge pump #SXSW #TED #Nokia

20 Mar


A recharge stop for your phones, computers, and mobile devices at South by Southwest. Solar powered retro styled gas pump, and benches made from recycled phones. Put up by Nokia and with the chargers for all phones and devices attached to it.

A great idea worth spreading – as it just worked, and was a social space where people gathered.

Can we have some more please. Anyone else want to help get hold of some of these? Place them in public spaces, at public events.

I would like us to get hold of one for TEDxYork on July 7th.

Any help Nokia?

    Hi,The SolarPump Charging Station was designed and built by Sol Design Lab, a local Austin Design Company with support from SXSW in 2010. This year Nokia provided the benches for the public to use while charging their phones. If you would like to know more about the SolarPump Charging Station see our website at or contact us at We have built 5 different charging stations and tour with them through out the year. Thanks for taking a great photo!-Beth
