The solar panel has been built into the lid of the device with the main body of the device to take the batteries requiring charging. The charger can be positioned at an angle due to its adjustable stand so the solar panels can take full advantage of any sunlight around.
Boy how I’d like to get my hands on one of these. Besides reducing power consumption, we can reduce the number of cords and adapters we have to lug around. And as Candace Lombardi writes, the cost of the technology enabling these applications is decreasing
One of the main things holding back small incorporable solar has been the cost. But with CIGS coming along further in terms of both efficiency and production cost compared to silicon solar cells, integrating flexible thin-film solar cells finally looks commercially viable.
