"I was fascinated with clean technology, and I wanted to find a way that it could benefit people in their everyday life by solving a common problem -- running out of battery," says creator Milos Milisavljevic. Courtesy Strawberry Energy
There are currently 12 Strawberry Trees spread across Serbia and Bosnia, and the team is planning to expand to America in partnership with U.S. company 3fficient. Courtesy Strawberry Tree
