iPowerUp has made this a reality in a small scale form fitted smartphone charging case design that fits in your pocket and provides useful emergency power even in short periods of solar exposure!
History – iPowerUp Hybrid / Traditional Smartphone Chargers
iPowerUp has been engineering traditional and alternative energy harvesting technologies since 2007, its CEO Jerry Bessa has been engaged in R&D since the mid-90’s. In 2000 he created the world’s first multi-charging solar phone charging case for the Ericcson T28, though this technology was 10 yrs ahead of its time (since the phone’s power demands were much less than what they are today, if you can remember T9 texting?)
iPowerUp created hybrid solar charging holsters for the Blackberry and Motorola Razor smartphones as well. iPowerUp released its traditional Apple iPhone 4/4S charging case line in late 2010, and were sold at every Hudson News in all major US Airports and Radio Shack.
Today, our Fusion hybrid provides the highest commercial solar efficiency @ 22.4% available, and this product is in a very clever convenient smartphone charging case design.
Delivers up to 500 mAh’s p/hr on a sunny day ( 0-100% charge-up for iPhones 6/6S internal 1840 mAh battery = 3.5 hrs, or 5.5 hrs to fill the cases 2500 mAh internal battery). Think of rooftops covered in solar panels, up until today solar has only been efficient on such a large scale.
