Simon Wilby, CEO of The Smart Power Inc.,a company offering practical solutions to many of today’s technological and environmental problems is proud to introduce his invention to America. Going by the name “The Smart One,” it is a solar powered cellphone battery charger. Moving to Calgary, Canada from the U.K. in 1991, Simon Wilby started inventing things to make his life easier. He quickly made a name for himself in Canada as an inventor and as an entrepreneur when he took things a step further by marketing his inventions.
Simon Wilby’s invention -- a two-way voice collar designed for dogs to help their owners keep track of them -- is what set everything into motion. He was inspired to invent this pet device by his need to constantly maintain contact with his five dogs, as he is a pet-lover himself. Figuring that other pet-lovers like himself might find themselves in the same predicament, he marketed said device. And the rest, as they say, is history.
A solar-powered lithium battery for cell phones was next on the list of Simon Wilby’s many practical inventions. He thought of solar-powered batteries as a practical solution to the problem in which he frequently found himself in: his phone battery dying on him right in the middle of an important call. The Smart Power, Inc. is currently marketing this product in question called “The Smart One.”
