Tech startup Solartab limited starts shipping their new breed of portable Solar Charger, a major crowdfunding hit.
Combine efficient Green Energy with appealing Design for Unique Product
Having spent the last year in Shenzhen, China, closely following manufacturing of his dream product, Solartab Limited’s CEO Simon Methi now stands proudly beside the first finished batch.
“It feels amazing to finally ship out the first batch of Solartabs to our early supporters. Manufacturing such a sophisticated product was a challenging process, but the end result is even better than what we originally planned for”, the excited startup founder beams.
The Solartab is a new breed of premium solar charger for mobile devices, featuring a highly efficient 5.5W solar panel and a powerful 13,000 mAh internal battery that allows user to store solar power for later.
In other words: Charging your phone or tablet with green sunfueled energy has never been easier – even after sunset or on a rainy day!
And even more impressively, tech enthusiasts can charge their beloved touchscreen gadget even while they’re listening to their favorite summer tune, or browsing the Internet.
“We believe solar power is the future of power consumption”, says Methi, “and that this product will truly change the way people perceive and use solar chargers”.
The enthusiastic startup may very well be on to something. Forwardthinking corporations are currently investing heavily in green energy alternatives, and the sunshine state of Hawaii recently passed a bill that aims to make 100% of the state’s electricity come from renewable sources by 2045. The city of Burlington, also in the U.S., already reached 100% as of late.
Not only are industry giants and lawmakers putting their faith into massive solar plants, but consumers are also to an everincreasing degree taking energy matters into their own hands – freeing themselves from wall sockets using innovative new products like the Solartab.
Energy has traditionally been generated centrally, distributed over power lines and sold to consumers. (…) The Edison Electric Institute (EEI), a trade group, warns that distributed generation could do to energy companies what the internet did to newspapers. – The Economist
An intriguing and exciting development, especially for young entrepreneurs like the Solartab team.
Using their new breed of solar charger, keeping energyhungry smartphones or tablets going all day at the beach, music festivals or picnics in the park has become easier than ever.
“As long as the sun is out, the Solartab will always charge at maximum efficiency”, promises Methi. To keep this promise, the Solartab team not only increased the solar panel’s size way beyond what you’ll find on the average portable solar charger on the market today, but also included an inventive builtin cover.
The unique cover not only gives the Solartab a stunning look, but also works as a stand for the solar panel, letting users angle the solar panel in three different positions. After adjusting the angle to the sun’s current position, all that’s left to do is plug in any smartphone or tablet and let nature take care of the rest.
Oh, and the cover will also protect the Solartab while it’s tucked away in bags, on the way between beaches and parks. Making sure the charger’s premium look won’t be compromised with scratches or stains.
Making green energy a truly accessible and viable option for the modern tech consumer of 2015, it is no wonder the Solartab team scored a major hit on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.com – reaching 200% of their initial funding goal.
Now they’re ready to ship out to the whole rest of the world as well – Solartabs are available for order on www.mysolartab.com, starting at $119 USD.
