In partnership with Digicel and ZTE we launched the world’s first solar powered mobile phone in 2009, to great acclaim. This product has won awards from GSMA, Global Telecoms Business magazine, and Accenture, and went on to sell in over 32 countries across the world.
Since then, we’ve developed phones with many other manufacturers. In 2011 the first solar smartphone was launched, in partnership with Umeox, ringing in a new age of true mobility and connectivity. Solar phones are bringing a better life to rural farmers in places like Kenya, Rwanda, India and Brazil, giving them a reliable, free energy source for their phone – which they rely on for communications and money transfers.
Cell phones come in all shapes and sizes, but we’ve developed two sizes of our Smartcell specifically to fit a broad range of small portable devices, including the smallest feature phone. If you have a special size, you can use our tiny Sunboost3 chip – we’ll help you develop the perfect solution for your idea.
Intivation SunBoost technology enables you to build solar mobile chargers and solar battery packs that charge wherever, whenever. Well, during daytime of course. As we continue to become more and more mobile, the modern road warrior has an ever growing need for power on the go. A portable battery pack is great, but what if you could charge it on the go as well?
Advantages of a solar battery pack
Mobile chargers and battery packs are great for people on the move who rely on a number of electronic devices. As our arsenal of personal devices keeps growing, so does our need for additional power. This is where solar comes in: it allows you to charge your battery pack even while on the go, so that you will never find yourself looking for power outlet again. And when the need is really high and you just have to finish your call, charge on solar directly!
Image never replacing batteries again
In our digital lifestyles we use devices like remote controls, keybooards and computer mice all the time. And who hasn’t experienced the agony of one of the running out of power at night while you’re out of spare batteries? No more need. Several manufacturers have started developing amazing solutions to this problem, and with our technology you can make sure your customers will never experience a dead unit again.
