The Electree+ - created by Vivien Muller- has 27 miniature silicon solar panels - or "leaves," as they are called - which can be arranged in any way the owner wants to create their own bespoke tree, the Daily Mail reported.

The base of the gadget hides a battery that stores the solar energy.

At full capacity the device can hold enough power to charge an iPad twice and charge a phone in just four hours.

The Electree+ also conceals a USB connection underneath its wood-topped base unit.

Muller said that he was inspired to make the product after observing real trees, and noting that their leaves acted as natural solar panels.

While the gadget may cut down on your energy bills, it might take you a while to recoup the savings, as it will costs 283 pounds.
