A French artist, Vivien Muller, designed a Japanese tradition shaped tree called Electree that charges mobile devices using USB that is powered completely by light, in short, it uses solar energy to charge devices. The tree has 27 leaves or panels that can rotate freely. Energy produced during the day is stored in a 13,500 milliampere-hour-capacity battery hidden in the base. It took Muller 3 years to make the full-pledge product. Muller suggested the charging station be placed inside close to a window. The tree measures 40 centimetres tall and also comes with an AC plug.
