Solar powered rechargeable device for use with electronic devices    

A solar powered device comprising a solar radiation collection portion that includes a solar panel, a concentrator, a charge controller, a base portion, a plurality of legs, and connection portion.


A solar powered device comprising a solar radiation collection portion, wherein the solar radiation collection portion includes: a solar panel to collect solar radiation, a concentrator surrounding the solar panel to concentrate the solar radiation, and a charge controller coupled to the solar panel, a base portion, a plurality of legs, and a connection portion operably connecting the solar radiation collection portion to the base portion, the connection portion including a connection member having a first end and a second end is provided. Furthermore, an associated method is also provided.

Electronic devices, similar to those used in telecommunications, typically operate with the use of a rechargeable battery to power the electronic device. To recharge the battery, an electrical current is applied to the battery to electrically reverse the electrochemical reactions that previously generated electricity, for future conversion into electricity. Typically, the source of the electrical current to charge a battery is alternating current (AC) mains electricity. For instance, a micro-USB cable can connect an electronic device to a wall receptacle delivering AC electricity to charge the battery of the electronic device.

Although plugging an electronic device into an AC power source is sufficient to charge a battery of an electronic device, an AC power source is not always available. For example, a person stranded or simply working in the field with no means of generating sustainable electricity cannot simply plug the device into a cable charger connected to a wall receptacle. Without a conventional AC power source to recharge the battery, the electronic device will eventually fail. Moreover, consumption of the electricity and electricity generation can be harmful to the environment, and harmful to a person's finances.

Thus, a need exists for an apparatus and method for charging a battery and/or an electronic device with an alternate power source, in particular, solar cell technology.

Primary Application of the Technology

Portable solar charger companies or solar power companies

The Problem Solved by the Technology

Current portable chargers do not generate enough power to charge electronic devices efficiently. This patent/technology greatly reduces the time it takes to charge a device.

How the Technology Solves the Problem

The concentrator/reflector is able to maximize the efficiency of the solar panel as much as possible and therefore it reduces the charges time of electronic devices.

Competitive Advantage

While there are many other similar products on the market this stands out because it is able to maximize the efficiency of the solar panel and therefore it greatly reduces the charging time of electronic devices. In other words, it is an advancement and improvement on all the current devices. The device is also able to generate more power on cloudy days than current devices.

The seller may consider selling these patents individually.
