Solar Panels to Power E-book Readers

IDG News Service, via PC World, are reporting on a prototype solar panel extension for e-book readers - in this case attached to a Sony Reader electronic book. It is on show at the International Meeting on Information Display (IMID) running in Seoul.

The panel is 10 centimeters in width and length, less than a millimeter thick and weighs just 20 grams. Exposure to sunlight for four to five hours would provide enough power to run the e-book reader for a day.

The solar panel used in the prototype has an efficiency of 9.6 percent and LG is aiming to increase this to 12 percent next year and 14 percent by 2012 - at which time it should be ready for commercialisation.

Beyond any doubt it can be somewhat expensive, yet in the event that you will put in the work and the budgetary sponsorship, you can see some stunning returns. Be that as it may, not everybody knows how to purchase arrive, so here is a brisk manual for kick you off. payday loans san-diego
