Jump to the comments
United Solar, the global manufacturer of UNI-SOLAR® lightweight, flexible solar products and a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. (ECD), has announced the commercial launch of the world’s first solar-powered cover for the Amazon Kindle™ e-reader by SolarFocus Technology Co., Ltd., a leader in solar-powered portable products.

SolarFocus’ SolarKindle Lighted Cover uses UNI-SOLAR’s proprietary technology to charge the Kindle’s internal battery as well as the cover’s integrated reserve battery, which is used to power the LED reading light featured on the inside of the cover. The solar cells, located on the front of the leather cover, are charged from direct exposure to the sun, providing unlimited extended power to the device.

“The SolarKindle Lighted Cover is a great example of the success of United Solar’s Open Solar™ initiative, which allows our strategic partner, SolarFocus, to leverage the differentiation of our unique high-performance, lightweight and flexible solar cells,” said Chris Bala, Vice President of Sales-Open Solar. “This innovative product represents just how easily UNI-SOLAR technology can be integrated seamlessly and cost effectively into everyday applications.”
