Simple Source

Inspired by the action of ancient Chinese using bamboo to catch water, “Simple source” is a device that uses water to charge cellphones.
Nowadays, people have great dependency on cellphones; therefore it caused a lot of frustration when there’s no easy way to find a socket to charge the cellphone outdoor. “Simple source” is a device created to tackle this problem and provide a better solution.
Simply pour the water on the device, and the hydrogen from the water will become the fuel for “Simple source”, with its wireless charging technology, users can simply put their cellphone on “Simple source” to charge.
