AMES, Iowa — PowerFilm is excited to announce the release of the LightSaver, one of several products that will be included in their new line of portable solar chargers, manufactured in the United States.
Solar chargers on the market are heavy, bulky and lack energy storage. The LightSaver is extremely light and contains a state of the art solar USB charging system which allows you to store solar energy. The LightSaver’s high performance electronics, storage and compact design put it in a class by itself.
The LightSaver’s flexible solar module wraps around the outside of the core taking up minimal space in your pack, pocket, or bag. When you’re ready to recharge the LightSaver, unroll the panel to expose it to the sun. Four attachment points located at each corner allow for easy mounting to a variety of surfaces.
Once fully charged, simply roll it up and enjoy extended battery life on your hike or trip. A convenient micro-USB port also allows you to pre-charge the LightSaver before leaving home.
The standard LightSaver charges a cell phone one and a half times and can be recharged by six hours of full sunlight (approximately one sunny day). Weighing only 4.9 ounces and taking up minimal packing space, this portable charger is on the forefront of on-the-go solar charging.
Diverse applications, military grade build and lightweight construction make PowerFilm’s products and new LightSaver line a leader in portable solar charging.
PowerFilm has been developing and manufacturing its unique flexible solar module technology for over 26 years, making it one of the few, and maybe the oldest, surviving solar manufacturers in the United States. PowerFilm modules have been used for applications ranging from solar tents for the Army, solar bikinis and even powering electronics on a solar yacht to Venus.
