Company Summary

SolePower is developing wearable energy harvesting devices to power portable electronics. The first product is a power-generating insole; 2 hours of walking gets the user 1 hour of talk time on an iPhone 6. We have a waitlist of over 7,500 people, 2 PO's from the US Army, 480 pre-orders on Kickstarter, and and 2 issued patents. First units to the military were delivered, and we are planning to launch into the consumer market later this year.
