On the problem of rapid discharge of the smartphone does not need much to say – now it is very acutely. With each new generation of smartphones, manufacturers are trying to increase battery life. But along with this, some technical improvements are added, which become more demanding for electricity. In the market of accessories, you can find a huge selection of portable chargers, some of which offer to charge the smartphone from solar energy. But, as a rule, the solar battery itself takes up a lot of space.
A Danish start-up called InfinityPV presented a unique charger called Heli-on, which can rightly be considered the world’s most compact solar charger.
A special flexible solar battery is pushed out of the case like a roulette. It replenishes the smartphone with energy. HeLi-on has controllers working on technology MMPT (Maximum Power Point Tracker – algorithm for tracking the maximum point). This ensures that the full potential of the solar panel is used to charge the device. The capacity of the lithium-ion battery installed in this accessory is 2600 mAh.
You can charge external devices in two ways: deploy the solar panel and charge the device directly from sunlight, or use an internal battery when there is no sun.
Gadget in a collapsed form easily fits in the hand, so the process of charging your smartphone or other device can be absolutely mobile, right along with you. Naturally, Heli-on, if desired, can easily be hidden in any pocket. As soon as the Sun hides behind the horizon or clouds, The charge will safely continue.
