Nintendo and its affiliates are always coming up with pretty cool devices. When they first came out with the Gameboy in the 1980’s, they shocked the world because it was so innovative. It was the first handheld gaming device that was interchangable with games. Truly Amazing.
Then they came out with the Nintendo Entertainment system, which was an 8-bit home gaming console that basically brought an arcade to your house. If you remember all the cool games for it, such as Super Mario Bro’s 1-3, Zelda, Noah’s arc and other classics, you’ll remember how amazingly awesome this system was.
Then of course came the Super-nintendo, which was a 16Bit system, which was ahead of it’s time as well.
Then came the Nintendo 64, a 64-bit gaming system that was along the lines of the Sony Playstation, and now of course there was the gamecube and Wii.
But another cool innovation is a solar powered charger that is compatible with multiple Nintendo gaming systems (which you can buy here on Amazon). While not actually made by Nintendo the company, it’s guaranteed to charge all the newer nintendo gaming systems. I thought of a few different occasions that would be useful for:
- If you’re camping. If you’re out there in the middle of the wilderness and you’re a gaming addict, there’s no doubt you will have an urge to play games. Now you’ll need a power source such as a generator or some other form of power such as a battery to power your TV, but as far as recharging goes, you’ll be able to harness the power of the sun.
- If the power grid goes down for any (or no) reason. Power outages happen all the time. Storms happen, and they blow trees down or rain so hard that it floods the power plant. Or sometimes fires strike and can affect the powerlines. And again, if you’re really into Nintendo and gaming in general, you’ll want to make sure this doesn’t happen to you.
- If you live off grid. If you’re wanting to permanently or semi-permanently live off the grid, you’ll need a solar recharger for your gaming devices. This would come in super handy for the outdoorsman and survivalist who still wants to be a gamer.
I wanted to give a big shoutout to my man Steve in California, who works for a solar company in Fresno. He gave me the idea to write this article and I just thought it was pretty cool overall, so thanks Big Steve for that heads up!
Anyways, I love the idea of combining off grid technology with gaming systems and thought it was awesome that there is a charger that’s solar powered for any Nintendo System. Continue reading
