Voltaic, compania care produce tot felul de accesorii cu panouri solare pentru baterii, a lansat produsul Spark, o husa pentru tablete (dar nu numai tablete, căci pot fi conectate și alte dispozitive mobile) prevăzută cu panouri solare pentru a menține o perioadă mai lungă tableta funcțională.
O perioadă de 10 ore în bătaia luminii soarelui asigură încărcarea completă a bateriei unui Apple iPad, iar alte tablete pot fi încărcate chiar mai rapid. Pentru persoanele care obișnuiesc să nu lucreze în aceeași perioadă în care soarele luminează, Spark a fost prevăzut și cu o baterie internă, și de asemenea îi mai pot fi adăugate și alte baterii din oferta de produse.
Pentru conectivitate au fost integrate două sisteme de ieșire de tip USB, una de 5.0V și 600mAH și una mai puternică, de 5.0V și 2A. Asta înseamnă că pot fi încărcate 2 dispozitive în aceelași timp. Greutatea husei este de 1,130g, fiind rezistentă la apă și radiații UV.

Voltaic Launches Solar Charger for iPad
New York, NY – June 23, 2011 – Voltaic Systems today opened up opportunities for grid-free computing with the availability of its iPad solar charger, the Spark Solar Tablet Case.
Perfect for mobile workers and global travelers, the Spark provides an hour of iPad video playback for every hour in direct sunlight. In addition, it will charge the Blackberry Playbook, T-Mobile G-Slate, Samsung Galaxy Tab, the ASUS Transformer and most handheld electronics. When the sun is unavailable, the internal battery holds one complete iPad charge. The battery can also be re-charged from a wall or car charger.
“Voltaic set out to design a lightweight case that could charge a tablet quickly, but also match the sleekness and simplicity of the many of the tablets,” said Shayne McQuade, CEO of Voltaic Systems. “The Spark Solar Case is a powerful and compact way to carry and charge an iPad.”
Voltaic is also launching today the V39 USB Battery, which provides backup power for iPads, other tablets and smartphones.
8 Watts of Power for Fast Charging
On the front of each case are four two-Watt solar panels. Solar charge times are determined by the total area and efficiency of the solar cells — the Spark uses high-efficiency monocristalline cells which will charge an iPad from about 10 hours of sunshine. The cells are encased in a clear, UV and scratch resistant coating. The rugged panels are waterproof and built to withstand the abuse of everyday use.
High Output, Dual-Port Battery
Many tablets, including the iPad, can charge quickly from high-powered USB ports which output 2Amps, four times the current of a standard USB port. The Spark’s 39 Watt hour battery has both a high-powered USB port for tablets and a standard USB port for phones and other handheld electronics.
Power for Digital Cameras
Fast charging for a tablet also means fast charging for professional DSLR cameras. Users can connect a car charger cradle for their camera battery to the solar output of the Spark, which is switchable between 6 and 12 Volts.
Protective and Lightweight Case
The Spark case is fully padded and lined for a snug and soft fit. It can be held by its handle, carried using the removable shoulder strap, or placed inside a backpack or other bag.
Key features and specifications of the Spark Solar Case include:
+ 8 Watts solar power, switchable between 6 and 12 Volts – panels available in silver or charcoal
+ 39 Watt hour battery with low-power and high-power USB ports
+ Charging cable with 5 standard adapters to connect to most handheld electronics
+ 13.5″ high x 10.5″ wide x 2″ inches
+ About 2.5 pounds including solar panels and battery
+ Waterproof fabric manufactured from recycled PET
