infinityPV announce the launch of their latest OPV product on Kickstarter

HeLi-on is a the most compact solar charger using organic photovoltaic devices that fits in your pocket

9 Nov 2015 | Editor

inifintyPV states that the "HeLi-on" is the first solar charger using flexible polymer solar cells, also known as organic solar cells or OPVs. This technology is the result of more than fifteen years of research into a novel, flexible and lightweight solar cell. These solar panels have a very low environmental impact with neither toxic nor scarce materials used within the production process.

The flexible solar cells are printed directly on thin plastic foil using optimised printing machines. The solar panels are fabricated in large-scale and high-speed using printing machines similar to newspapers or packaging printing machines and do not need multi-million dollar facilities as used in traditional silicon PV technology.
