Greentech Lead America: SunWarrior, a designer of
solar-based products that deliver on the promise of true charge-anywhere
mobility for handheld electronic devices, has launched a new mobile solar
charger technology with its PowerSwatch product.
PowerSwatch product features snap-on expansion solar
panels for more power and shorter charge times. PowerSwatch solar chargers
utilize ZapSnap technology, which enables the charger to expand from 3.5 watts
to 10.5 watts or more–in a snap. Since the ZapSnaps are conductive, users are
free from the hassle and mess of external cabling.
PowerSwatch’s 3.5-watt output is more than sufficient for
charging most smartphones and smaller devices. Users requiring speedy charge
times or have more demanding devices (iPads, ereaders, tablets, etc.) may
choose to purchase one or more PowerPlus2 expansion solar panels. PowerPlus2s
can be added to any side of the PowerSwatch and can even snap to each other.
“With 6 billion mobile subscribers worldwide, the
need for convenient, cost-effective mobile solar chargers is enormous. But one
size does not fit all. While our competitors sell solar chargers of various
power output, we offer the PowerSwatch, which can expand in increments of 7
watts with each additional PowerPlus2 expansion solar panel. Our customers
don’t have to buy a whole new charger if they want more power. They can simply
add a PowerPlus2,” said Rourke Oakland, SunWarrior’s CEO.
