The solar panel: four high efficiency back-contact cells encapsulated in a polymeric structure suited to resist impacts and weathering.
A total power of more than 12 W and a special sensitiveness in low light condition. The panel frame protects the edges and the four holes in the corners allow fixing the Energy Flyer to your backpack or on your tent.
The electronics: a MPPT charger able to maximize the solar panel power and in the meanwhile offers a stable 5 V power supply via a standard USB port.
Specification Solbian Charger is a DC-DC boost converter designed to maximize the power generated by photovoltaic panels for any external condition of temperature and solar radiation intensity.
Optimization of power conversion is obtained with embedded logic performing a MaximumPower Point Tracking (MPPT) algorithm on the PVmodule connected to the converter.
The embedded charge controller prevents battery overvoltage and overcurrent. Safety of the application is guaranteed by automatic halt of the driver in case of output overvoltage or overtemperature.
Giovanni Soldini said about Energy Flyer: without being slaves “Energy independence has always been one sailing’s main attractions for me, harnessing the force of nature to reach newhorizons. Energy Flyer is a result of this dream: to convert sunlight into the energy we need to power our devices wherever we are, without being slaves to a power outlet or batteries.”
