XPAL Solar Egg promises to charge batteries to 90% in four hours

Posted on Thursday, February 18 2010 @ 01:26:35 CET by

XPAL and Intivation unveiled the Solar Egg at the Mobile World Congress, this is a solar powered based charger that promises to charge batteries of phones, MP3 players and digital cameras to over 90 percent in just four hours of exposure to sunlight. The product will start shipping in March.
XPAL and Intivation are launching the Solar Egg, the world's first high performance solar changer, at Mobile World Congress, 2010. The Solar Egg is based on XPAL's outstanding battery expertise and Intivation's groundbreaking SunBoost solar conversion technology. Built by XPAL, with high power consumption users in mind, the Solar Egg can reach over 90% battery charge in just four hours of exposure during average charging conditions.

The charger is the first of its kind to recognise the power and convenience demands of consumers across the world and the challenges presented by less sunny places. Built to power a wide range of devices, from phones to MP3 players and digital cameras, the Solar Egg will reduce the need for multiple chargers and conveniently offer greater battery life.

"Solar power is a huge unrealised energy source particularly in the Western world which tends to have fewer hours of sunlight than developing markets," says, Christian Scheder, President, XPAL, "As personal devices demand more energy and solar charging technology improves, we are making solar power available to more consumers and changing the way people world power their portable devices."

Paul Naastepad, CEO, Intivation, added; "For years, people have been struggling to use solar chargers in the Western world with several issues. Either they simply don't work with lower levels of sunlight, or they charge so slowly that it's not worth it. Together with XPAL, we have developed a product that produces enough energy to power the numerous personal devices we all have today. The Solar Egg charges fully in four hours, in medium levels of natural light, and is compatible with the majority of consumer devices, bringing it one step closer to the universal charger people want."
