Suntactics Releases Solar Powered USB Charger

Monday, August 9th, 2010

DeanSalaDean Sala (1993 & 2009) and his partner, Gary Heathcoat, are pleased to announce that the first product generated through the solar company they started about two years ago is now available for purchase.

The Suntactics PC5 is a powerful solar charger for iPod, iPhone, Droid, Blackberry, or anything that can charge from a USB port including DSI handheld games devices, GPS units and all sorts of USB batteries used for power backup. It is about the size of a CD case when folded.

“What makes this product different is that it is a miniature version of the high-powered solar panels you would put on your roof,” said Sala. “Using high efficiency silicon solar cells, these panels produce up to 5.4 volts of power at 1.2 amps. That’s over 6 watts of solar power! See if any other small solar charger can match that!”

The SunTactics PC5 can charge a dead iPhone in 3 hours using only the sun. There is no internal battery to wear out and create toxic waste. It’s sturdy, reliable and built to last for many years. And – it’s made in USA!
