The first solar panel E-reader book cover in the world. We support E-book development to help carbon reduction via book readers in schools and the general public sector. The free-from-sun-angle-limitation amorphous solar panel is integrated into a nicely designed book cover which is already commonly used to protect E-reader screens. The electricity collected by the solar panel is transferred via the patented hinge to keep the design slim. We also integrated our patented power management solution – Maximum Power Point Tracking – to reach the best total system efficiency. One hour under the sun can enable provide enough charge for reading over 800 pages of E-book content.
