The Forty2 has dimensions of about 2 x 3 ft when closed and weighs 25 pounds
South Dakota's Peppermint Energy has launched a Kickstarter funding campaign to help take its Forty2 personal, portable solar energy device from working prototype to its first limited production run and beyond
The Forty2 makes enough power available to the unit's three built-in AC outlets to run a small fridge or a big screen TV, or simultaneously charge several mobile devices like smartphones and tablets
It took Deep Thought (the supercomputer from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy) seven and a half million years to calculate that the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything was 42. South Dakota's Peppermint Energy is hoping that it won't take quite that long to bring its personal, portable solar energy device named The Forty2 into production. The company has turned to crowd-funding portal Kickstarter to help it take the all-in-one power unit from working prototype to its first limited production run and beyond.
