It wasn’t that long ago that we have seen the first Jolla phone being sold to the public and apparently after less than 2 month of the release, there has been a lot of activities around the device. Hardware-wise I mean.
As he mentions
“- voltage is about 6 V
– panel outputs 40-80 mA under a lamp”
And because in Nordics we have less sunlight than other countries in the winter, he hasn’t been able to witness the sun lately therefore he tried it with a halogen lamp with 10CM distance and he got 40-80 mAh output which is good considering the “lamp”!
Now as a prototype you might have noticed already that you’ll lose the camera! But naturally as the idea develops everything will be normal and you’re using your phone as its own solar charger!
Despite the lack of the cam, it does look very neat and classy in my opinion. And it works because according to skvark: “It says charger connected when it’s under the lamp”
This is getting a pretty good shape. The concept of TOH I mean. What do you guys think? Hot or Not? 😉
Though so far we only had “Power related” other halves which were 2, and not official! What would be the next one? Any TOH with data connectivity? I hope so.
