On the one hand, the world is becoming more aware of the need for sustainable development. On the other, our lives have become more and more dependent on portable electronic gadgets such as mobile phones, tablets, digital cameras and so on.
These gadgets need power, and traditional sources of power are the cause for a big part of the environmental damage to our planet. The Soladec Hybrid Solar Powered Charger is designed to provide power to portable electronic devices with rechargeable batteries without having to rely on alternating current from a nearby electrical point in the wall.
It is ideal for people who travel frequently, whether on work or for pleasure. It can charge more than 3500 different electronic devices using little more than the energy of the sun. Devices that can be charged include GPS navigators, smartphones, music players, e-book readers etc. If you are a die-hard Apple fan, be assured that the Soladec charger is compatible with the digital loves of your life that run on iOS.
Developed by MiseMet, the Soladec Charger uses the latest technologies to maximise efficiency of energy conversion. It uses a 1.65 W monocrystalline photovoltaic solar cell to capture and convert solar energy to electrical energy. The tempered low-iron glass maximises light transmission.
These technological features allow the Soladec to capture more energy from ambient light than any other solar charger. Connectivity between the Soladec charger and the device that needs to be charged is through the USB port; so make sure you carry the right cable with you when you leave home. The Soladec is priced at less than $89.99 (£57) and is available at Amazon.
