Take this portable, sustainable version of the sun with you wherever you go. Little Sun Charge is a high-performance solar charger and light that frees you from the grid. Via USB, it powers your phone, MP3 player, GoPro, Kindle or camera: wherever you are, whenever you need it.

It’s your perfect travel buddy, both durable and water-resistant – it's perfect for the great outdoors, when you’re in transit without access to a power socket, or when you’re on the go in the city. With a large battery capacity of 4.400mAh, you can rely on it for all your adventures or just for your day-to-day life. Little Sun Charge is fully charged after only 10 hours in the sun.

Help bring light both to your life and to the developing world. Engineer Frederik Ottesen and designer Olafur Eliasson, whose 2009 MCA Chicago exhibition was one of the most popular in our history, have created an attractive, highly functional light and portable charger with a higher purpose: it is distributed worldwide by establishing sustainable trade routes and creating jobs in off-grid communities. Little Sun’s parent organization assists in the creation of off-grid small businesses, supplying them with Little Sun lamps and chargers at a reduced rate and providing retailers with the support they need to profit. It saves users 90% over 3 years compared to kerosene.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
