Technology Questions From Solar Phone Charger Users
(EMAILWIRE.COM, September 17, 2014 ) Modesto, California -- In the wake of an explosion of sales and a flurry of customer communication, the team behind the Solario Solar phone charger , produced and distributed by California-based SJS Direct, takes time to dig into some of the most common questions regarding their newest product, from how it works to how long it takes to charge up in sunlight.
"Easily one of the most common questions we get is how it works," states the CEO of SJS Direct and Solario Brand Manager Stacy McIntosh. "Truthfully, the technology isn't new. Solar power has been around for a long time, we just found a way to put it to work in a new way."
The Solario solar phone charger utilizes a mini solar panel to generate photovoltaic electricity, just like the much larger solar panels on rooftops or satellites. "It's basically a miniaturized version of the solar power panels you might see on a downtown office building," says McIntosh. "Since the solar panel on the Solario phone charger doesn't generate as much electricity as a traditional battery, we coupled it with a power bank so it can store up solar energy for later use."
Another query sent in by multiple users: does the Solario generate enough electricity to replace traditional power entirely? "It really depends on the user," explains McIntosh. "If someone is constantly tapping away at their smartphone, shooting videos and snapping pictures, a Palm-sized solar panel charger can't put out enough electricity to keep up at least not yet. But if the user generally uses their phone on stand-by and uses it a moderate amount, the Solario can keep a smartphone going for days or weeks at a time."
And the most common question: how long does it take to recharge the Solario? McIntosh states that, once again, it depends on the user. "Draining the Solario all the way down to zero means it will take at least two days of sunlight to charge back up." Thankfully, the Solario team was good enough to add a more traditional recharging option. "For those who don't want to sit around and wait, the Solario can be charged up from a wall socket or USB port, and that only takes about an hour or so."
Like any device that contains a battery, the Solario has a maximum sustainable temperature. "I know it sounds counterintuitive, but too much heat can damage the Solario. Recharging it by placing it on a car dashboard, for example, could cause permanent battery damage." Manufacturing specifications place the top end temperature of most battery operated devices at around 130 degrees Fahrenheit, and the heat magnification effect of car windshields can exceed that amount significantly. "We learned that one the hard way," laughs McIntosh. "Direct sunlight only no windshields."
