HeLi-on: The most compact solar charger that fits in your pocket!Advanced polymer solar cells make pocket friendly solar charger possible Copenhagen, Denmark – Monday 9 November 2015
Have you ever been out of battery when you needed your phone the most? Perhaps when you needed to navigate in a new city, or maybe while waiting for an important call, or an important message. Or going camping or to a music festival, and still want to be able to write notes or take pictures with your smartphone or camera after several days or weeks.
The reason doesn’t actually matter, but we all want our e-gadget to have a battery that will last forever. Well, we are not quite there yet, but the HeLi-on solar charger definitely puts us in the right track: All you need is sunlight! The embedded solar panels directly convert solar energy into electricity, which is stored in a battery or used directly to charge your device, via a standard USB connection.
HeLi-on is the first solar charger using flexible polymer solar cells. This technology is the result of more than fifteen years of research into a new revolutionary, flexible and lightweight solar cell. These solar panels have a very low environmental impact as no use of neither toxic nor scarce materials is included in the production. The ultra flexible solar cells are printed directly on thin plastic foil using optimized printing machines.
The company behind HeLi-on is infinityPV, a Danish company specialized on selling solar panels, materials and equipment related to the technology. The CEO, Frederik C. Krebs, is one of the most renowned scientists in the field, with more than 400 publications in scientific journals. This product is truly a fusion of modern science with a useful application. HeLi-on will provide an outstanding contribution to the world of the mobile chargers, looking just as a battery charger, but giving so much more.
The product will be launched on Kickstarter on November 9th, with a starting price of $90 for the white edition, including solar panels, a 2600 mAh battery, and free international shipping.
