Solar Paper can recharge any device that charges using a USB cable
Solar paper can charge almost any device that recharges via USB, including, smartphones, tablets, walkie talkies, flashlights, portable game consoles, cameras, video cameras, and rechargeable batteries. (Refer to the handy guide further down the page to help you pick the right wattage for your devices.)
Size & weight comparison
Thin, Lightweight and Durable
Solar Paper measures just 9 x 19 x 1.1 cm when folded, and each panel weighs only 65~75 (2.5 oz). Watt-for-watt, it is 70 percent smaller and lighter than our closest competitor. Most importantly, Solar Paper is just 1.1 cm deep, at its thickest point, compared to 3.8 cm for our competitor, easy to carry it!
Solar Paper is water resistant
Embedded magnets let you easily add or subtract Solar Paper’s solar panels.
Easily Expandible Using Magnets
We wanted to make Solar Paper as compact as possible and also allow you to expand it in the future if you need to charge larger devices. Our design solution was to create a set of folding solar panels held together using strong magnets with silicon connectors. Only need two panels and want to save some weight? No problem. Just bought a tablet and need more wattage to charge it? Also not a problem.
Use Solar Paper's embedded magnets to attach it to metal surfaces.
There are a couple of other advantages of using magnets in Solar Paper, too. First, there’s no wear and tear on seams when you fold or unfold the panels, greatly extending Solar Paper’s life. The magnets are also quite strong, so you can use them to mount Solar Paper to metal objects, as shown in the picture.
Auto reset technology
Set it and Forget It
Unlike other simple devices with a battery, smart devices like smart-phones and tablets would not accept low current caused by insufficient sunlight. In this case, devices have to be manually reset. That means that users have to unplug and replug the cable every time a cloud passes overhead or you walk through a shadow. This is very inconvenient.
We wanted to make Solar Paper as easy as possible for anyone to use, so we have integrated ‘auto-comparison technology’ into the charger, to make it automatically resume powering your devices, after the sun starts soaking it again.
