Ideal for campers and commuters alike, WAACS’ innovative retractable solar panel charger allows users to top up their electronic devices when away from a mains outlet. It incorporates a flexible solar array that curls up in the aluminium cylinder, and presents a compact and durable solution for this eco-friendly means of energy generation on a personal scale.
WAACS are merely displaying a concept here and there are no firm details about the specifications of the device. In particular there’s no mention of the potential electrical output of the technology, future mass-production of the device, nor of prospective pricing if it were to go on sale.
Inspired by ancient papyrus rolls combined with modern day flexible solar cells, we made sure that a lack of electricity en route will no longer be a worry.WAACS Design
There are of course other portable charging devices for mobile phones, but these are often based around the idea of storing electrical charge in a reserve cell or capacitor. But chances are, if you’ve forgotten to charge your phone’s battery, you’ve also forgotten to charge your backup battery and this is why WAACS’ solar panel aspect of this device isn’t a mere novelty.
