A very innovative dimension in device charging has been unveiled in which cell phones, tablets and laptops can be charged through a small film applied on the screen of the device. A source of light or just solar energy can be absorbed by the ultra-thin photo-voltaic layer and it converts it into energy of about 250mW that will charge the battery non-stop. The new solar charging technology has been developed by Wysips and they claim that it can it can fully charge a typical cell phone battery in 6 hours of outdoor light and will not affect the screen even if it’s a touch screen or a 3D enabled screen. The product might be available in about a year or two.
This is surely going to be a breakthrough as manufacturers will not have to worry about chunky battery size and users will not have to worry about juicing up their devices for days.
