Our civilization largely depends on the development of energy. Without electricity, it is almost impossible to imagine a comfortable life and work of industry. There are many ways to generate electricity, but most of them can hardly be called environmentally friendly and safe for the environment.
Huge thermal power plants burn coal and fuel oil, hydroelectric power plants negatively affect the ecosystem, and nuclear energy is associated with the need to dispose and dispose of radioactive waste.
It is not surprising that over the past few decades, mankind has paid special attention to renewable energy sources, one of which is our sun. There is a whole science – photovoltaics or photovoltaics, which studies how to convert solar energy into ordinary electricity in a simple and environmentally friendly way.
Application of solar energy
Today, one of the most popular solutions has become portable charging stations, with which you can not only charge a laptop or smartphone away from home, but also connect ordinary household appliances to them, choosing a device of sufficient power.
The ideal “charging” for such a mini power plant can be portable folding solar panels that you can use in a variety of conditions:
on a hike;
at the campsite;
during military training;
during an emergency power outage at home and so on.
You can buy a standalone solar panel that allows you to directly charge your smartphone or tablet, or you can use a panel and charging station kit. In the latter case, you can guarantee maximum autonomy and independence from external power sources for a long time.
How it works
A solar charger (as the name suggests) gets its energy from the sun. But how does this process take place? The solar panel consists of photovoltaic cells that convert solar energy into direct current.
This is possible due to the semiconductor material used, which is able to conduct electrical charge generated by factors such as temperature and solar radiation. The received direct current is then converted into alternating current – the same as in household sockets.
The solar charger provides us with an endless supply of electricity so our gadgets won’t run out of power when we need them. How many times has access to a charged phone, navigator or radio saved a life during a difficult journey? Thanks to revolutionary technology, tourist solar panels are becoming more efficient, their charging time is shortening, and their power is increasing.
