SunPartner solar cover

Company SunPartner offered quite a practical approach to increase the battery charge smartphone. French startup plans to equip mobile devices transparent solar cells in the form of a protective film for the screen. This will almost always charge the battery smartphone.

Charge the battery from solar cells on the screen is very convenient. Not least because that working in an office or sitting in a cafe, we tend to put their phones on the table screen up.

Something like trying to offer researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of California at Los Angeles, which was inserted tiny light-sensitive elements directly into touch screens or collect light emitted by the organic light-emitting diodes. However, the technology proposed SunPartner, was cheaper and easier. The company has combined traditional and transparent solar cells.


Visible traditional solar plate hidden in the additional coverage with multiple lenses that spread the light in a certain way. To date, solar film SunPartner misses 82 percent of light. The company promises that the next prototype will have 90 percent transparency.

The first samples of the product have been presented in the Silicon Valley. The technology is protected by 30 patents SunPartner. It is noteworthy that the implementation of technology will require increasing the cost of a smartphone only 2.3 dollars, said the head of Matthew de Broca.

However, technology does not replace an electrical outlet, the mobile phone will still have to put the charge on the night. In normal use, you can achieve an increase of battery charge by 20 percent, says de Broca.

SunPartner Group, founded by a specialist in optics and businessman Joel Gilbert Louis DeBlois is working on this with the three manufacturers of mobile devices. The first models with integrated solar cells in the screen will be on sale early next year. There is information that the partners SunPartner present Finnish Nokia.

Meanwhile, Nokia is preparing for the premiere of the EOS camera phone .
