IXYS Introduces Solarade Portable 5W Solar Charger for Smart Phones

IXYS Corporation, a manufacturer of power semiconductors and integrated circuits (ICs) for energy efficiency, power management, and motor control applications, today announced the availability of Solarade – the smallest and lightest 5W solar charger ideal for charging smart phones, tablets, and multi-media players.

Measuring 230mm in length, 160mm in width, and 17mm in height and weighing only 170g, the Solarade is highly portable and efficient. Its monocrystalline solar panel/module has a high efficiency of 20 percent and generates a 5V output at 1A. Designed with a 5V built-in regulator, it is powerful enough to charge at the same speed as a regular wall charger – it is able to fully charge the iPhone 5 in 1.5-2 hours.

The maximum charge rate is obtained when the solar panel is perpendicular to direct sunlight. A built-in sun-angle adjuster can be used to position the panel appropriately for the optimum exposure to sunlight. A red LED indicator light will come on when the Solarade is generating electrical power.

Through an integrated USB port, the Solarade can be connected to mobile devices, using a USB cable. This slim solar charger can be used to charge Apple iPhones, Samsung Galaxy phones and Tabs, iPads, GPS devices, digital cameras, e-readers, video cameras, external batteries, flashlights, and many other electronic gadgets. This product is also suitable for backup DC power to charge batteries and portable equipment for hikers, travelers and off-grid power locations.
