Solar Makes it Easier to Read...on a Kindle
Technical innovation is changing the landscape of the solar industry. With the many challenges facing the solar industry, innovative companies like SolarFocus continue to push creative thought and innovation by designing and building solar electronic products like the new solar-powered Kindle for consumers! Yes, you can buy a solar powered Kindle to add to your collection of cool solar gadgets like a solar backpack and solar oven.
The SolarKindle case is a charger for Amazon's Kindle designed to carry the Kindle while also charging the device. The SolarKindle case includes a backup battery, which when fully charged the battery will provide roughly three weeks of use. The Solar Kindle case will charge the Kindle when the power is low. When the device is fully charged, the solar panels will charge the internal backup battery. Simply expose the solar panel to sunlight and voila, one hour of sunlight and the backup battery will have almost three days of power. According to the Daily Mail, "Given that Kindle is built for wireless use, with books and gadgets delivered to the gizmo via wi-fi or cellular networks, it's likely many SolarKindle-equipped e-readers may never be plugged in at all." The Hindustan Times reports that "SolarFocus was named an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards honoree for the product, which will be available to purchase from January 15 priced at $79.99."
Last year we saw Samsung develop a solar powered cell phone and solar powered netbook, with more innovative small companies like SolarFocus building and designing new solar powered products, consumers will be able to choose an eco-friendly and renewable energy product suitable for their needs. You will no longer have to worry about depleted and dead devices. You can power on the go with solar power.
