We are almost ready to display are working model of our flagship design, here is an early prototype of Sola-Folda 3.0 - Pico Solar Charger 12Watt

This was a good effort but we were not satisfied with the height or thickness... so back to the drawing board we went...We now have a firm design target..

Projected specifications:
100 Gram weight
0.50` or less slim profile
5.1V @ +2A - 12 Watts capable
charge 1-2 or more devices at one-time

more details and price coming soon...
