To fully utilize the power generated by smaller solar panels, like the high-quality products provided by Global Solar, we engineered a smart connector to regulate solar panel input power to efficiently charge our myPower ALL battery packs.
Tustin, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2009
Tekkeon announces that its myPower™ ALL family of external battery packs has been endorsed by Global Solar Energy for its line of lightweight portable solar chargers, 12 to 62 watt modules. The company's myPower ALL battery pack connects easily to Global Solar portable solar chargers to extend the operation time of electronic devices throughout the day and into the evening while still maintaining a level of charge to the device's primary battery.
myPower ALL external batteries provide hours of extended play time on laptop computers, portable DVD players, video recorders, cameras, satellite terminals/phones, GPS, MP3 players, mobile phones, and other portable consumer electronic products. When used with portable solar chargers, Tekkeon's myPower ALL rechargeable batteries store the sun's energy at the level produced by the solar module, enabling the stored solar energy to be used at night or other times when using a solar panel is not possible.
The battery packs can deliver the exact steady stream of regulated power required by a laptop. This is an important feature since each laptop requires a specific input voltage and the power output from a solar panel is variable and not controlled. And Tekkeon's batteries include multiple adapters for connection to a wide variety of laptop brands, with many other adapters available.
"The demand for portable power solutions to charge or extend electronic device operation time is growing," says Jim Kimbrough, North American sales manager for Global Solar Energy. "The combination of our solar charger with Tekkeon's myPower ALL battery delivers a renewable energy/rechargeable battery solution to meet growing portable power needs."
Tekkeon's myPower ALL batteries are compatible with most portable solar chargers (12 - 62 watt modules) from Global Solar Energy, and have been specifically designed to accept input power from an unregulated solar module. myPower ALL supports Tekkeon's Sunbooster smart adapter that accepts the solar panel input voltage and boosts the voltage to the appropriate level for charging the device battery.
"Recognizing the growing need for portable power in remote areas, we included a port for the connection of a solar panel in each myPower ALL battery," says Jerry Yang, president of Tekkeon, Inc. "To fully utilize the power generated by smaller solar panels, like the high-quality products provided by Global Solar, we engineered a smart connector to regulate solar panel input power to efficiently charge our myPower ALL battery packs."
Tekkeon's batteries can be connected to the Global Solar foldable modules (12 to 62 watt panels recommended) in two ways:
- Through the DC input port using a Global Solar 2.1 mm barrel plug adapter
- Through the 3-pin solar port using the Tekkeon Sunbooster smart 3-pin adapter which supports smaller solar modules, such as the Sunlinq 12 and 25 watt
Together the Global Solar Energy lightweight portable solar charger and Tekkeon myPower ALL battery pack weigh less than 5 pounds.
Available in various models, Tekkeon's myPower ALL battery is an external rechargeable laptop battery that doubles the life of laptop batteries and can simultaneously charge other small portable devices through a built-in-board USB port. myPower ALL is modular, so a second extended battery can be added to provide even more mobile power.
Tekkeon's myPower ALL batteries are available at many online retailers, and at the Tekkeon Store. Additional adapter tips are available at the Tekkeon Store.
