How it Works
Solio has been designed to harness the sun’s energy, shortening the process of transforming it into electricity by using photovoltaic cells (PVs). PVs convert sunlight into electricity that can be used immediately. The process is clean, fast, noiseless, and—thanks to Solio—easily portable.
Here’s how it works. Light from the sun hits the solar cells, exciting electrons within the cell. Some of them break free, and are channeled through a conductive metal strip to create an electric current. This current can either be stored in a battery or used directly in the form of electricity. The stronger the sunlight and the more rays that hit the cell, the more electricity is generated.
Solio features a fan-blade design that allows it to achieve maximum solar area when in use. Just spread out the blades, expose them to direct sunlight either out of doors or affixed to a window, and get ready to take your power on the road.
Charging Solio's internal battery takes 8-10 hours of direct sunlight. Solio will charge your device at the same rate as your conventional charger. Using the included wall adapter, solio will fully charge in approximately 4 hours. A fully charged Solio will completely charge an average cell phone at least twice.
When charging a cell phone directly from the sun, 60 minutes of sunlight will provide approximately 25 minutes of talk time and ten hours of standby time. When charging an iPod directly from the sun, one hour of sunlight will provide about one hour of play time. Solio can store energy for up to one year.
We absolutely fell in love with the portable yet powerful Solio Solar Charger. This little bundle of energy gives you limitless power because it uses the always available renewable resource of the sun to power your electronic devices from cell phones to GPS systems. Also, the Solio is great because it is a hybrid, accepting power from either the wall socket or the sun, storing this energy within Solio's internal rechargeable battery. Solio then uses this energy to power your gadgets at the same rate as if they were plugged into the wall. Solio will also hold its charge for up to a year. Designed to plug into the sun and keep you on the go!
We believe Solio Solar Chargers are the most convenient and eco-conscious charger on the market. They can work with multiple gadgets including cell phones, headsets, MP3s, and digital cameras. The bonus is that these little chargers not only give a boost to your electronics, they also use the free and clean power of the sun, making them a friend to the environment as well.
