Spencer Kern, a man so handy we’ve featured his work before, has seen people’s Pokémon Go battery woes and decided to do something about it.

Using a combination of woodwork, 3D printing and some electronics, he’s built this very lovely Pokécenter-themed charging station.

The Pokécenter shell is hiding a solar generator, which stores enough juice to be able to charge 10-12 phones at the same time.

It’s not just for show, either; he’s taken it out into the wild, where it looks like it did the job just fine.
