Portable Solar Power Systems for USB-Charged Devices

        Portable Solar Power Systems for USB-Charged Devices  

     USB-charged or USB-powered devices include cellphones, digital cameras, portable media players, PDA's, iPods, iPads, Tablets, small battery chargers, etc., all of which can be charged or powered up via a connector-extension cable that connects the device to the source of USB power.  The source of power can be a portable battery, a laptop that plugs into a wall AC outlet, an AC adapter, a DC adapter, or a solar panel, and must have a built-in standard Type A USB port that can be seen in the photo below.

On one end of the connector-extension cable is a standard USB plug that plugs into the USB port shown above.  That end of the cable is shown in the photo below.

On the other end of the cable is a second USB plug that plugs into the USB-charged device.  An example of a USB connector-extension cable can be seen in the photo below.

     As long as one has the connector-extension cable that links the USB-charged device to a standard Type A USB port, the device can be charged or powered up via an appropriate battery or solar panel.  That's where Powerenz, Inc. comes into the picture.

     Our ultra-lightweight solar panels can be used to recharge and provide power for a variety of USB-charged electronic devices, ranging from those that draw minimal power to the more power-hungry iPads, iPhones, and Tablets.  Lightweight, foldable, USB-voltage solar panels can be used alone to recharge and/or power up USB-charged devices, or they can be coupled with one of our USB-voltage batteries.  When the conditions of sunshine are optimal, USB-voltage solar panels are able to recharge USB-charged devices alone and without an intermediary battery.  For example, a 6-watt solar panel can recharge a cellphone, an iPod, some digital cameras, some small battery chargers, USB-voltage batteries, many iPhones, and other small devices.  A 12-watt panel is able to recharge iPhones, iPads, and Tablets alone and without an intermediary battery, though the battery allows one to recharge one's devices when the solar panel cannot be used.  When conditions of sunshine are not optimal, at night, when indoors, or when one's USB-charged device requires more power than the solar panel can provide, the solar panel can be coupled with a USB-voltage battery.  The solar panel recharges the battery.  The battery stores the energy that is produced by the solar panel, and makes it available to the end user at a time of his/her choosing.  When the conditions of sunshine become optimal again, the battery can be recharged using the solar panel again.

     In the photos below, one can see our smaller USB system that includes a solar panel, a battery, and a cable that connects the two.  In the first photo, one can see two different colored 6-watt panels to the left of the smaller battery.  In the second and third photos, one can see the two different colored solar panels folded.  In the fourth and fifth photos, one can see the two different colored 6-watt solar panels unfolded.  In the sixth photo, one can see the standard female USB port that is built into the smaller battery, and into which one plugs their USB electronic devices.


     We have rechargeable USB-voltage batteries that can be recharged via either of the aforementioned USB-voltage solar panels, any standard USB charge port, an AC-USB adapter, or a 12-volt-USB DC adapter (cigarette lighter socket adapter).  The first battery is the smallest of the two.  It is a 3 amp-hour battery that has one USB charge port, and that provides up to 0.6 amps of USB charging.  This is sufficient for many USB-charged devices, but not iPads, Tablets or all iPhones.  The second battery is larger.  It is an 10.4 amp-hour battery that has a pair of USB charge ports.  The first USB charge port delivers up to 1 amp/5 watts.  The second USB charge port provides up to 2.1 amps of USB charging current, and is used to recharge the more power hungry iPhones, iPads, and Tablets.  Both USB ports may be used simultaneously.  For those applications where only USB charging is required, the correct system can be found here.

     In the two photos below, one can see the two USB-voltage batteries along with their accessory cables and connectors, the smaller battery first, and then the larger battery.  Both batteries may be recharged using either of the two solar panels mentioned above.  We recommend that the 6W panel be used to recharge the smaller battery, and that the smaller battery be used to recharge smaller USB devices.  We recommend that the 12W panel be used to recharge the larger battery, though this is not mandatory, and that the larger battery be used to recharge larger USB devices.

     In the two photos below, one can see the smaller battery being charged by the 6W panel, and then being used to recharge a cellphone.

     In the two photos below, one can see the two USB charge ports that are built into the larger battery, the larger battery being recharged by the 12W panel.

     Both batteries plus their matching solar panels result in fairly small, very lightweight, and powerful systems.  In the two photos below, one can see that the smaller, then the larger battery system can both be held easily in one hand.

     For the discerning user of off-grid USB-voltage devices, and who requires the best, most durable, waterproof, and shockproof system (able to be dropped accidentally from one meter to ground), we have a third USB-voltage battery that can be recharged from the 12W solar panel, and that has a pair of USB ports and a push-button fuel gauge.  The first USB port delivers 1 amp/5 watts, and the second USB port delivers 2.1 amps/10watts.  See the three photos below.  If this system interests you, please call us at 770-639-2244.

     In this category, you will see the series of USB-voltage solar panels and batteries mentioned above.  Depending on your specific needs for USB power, we can help you identify the correct solar panel or solar panel - battery combination.  Of course, any of the solar panels and batteries may be purchased separately.  Please call us at 770 639 2244 to discuss your specific requirements.
