Hanergy Solar Flexible Paper Charger can harness the power of the sun and roll away after
If you are looking for a solar charger that’s flexible and portable, you might want to take a look at this ‘paper charger’ from Hanergy. Calling it a ‘paper charger’ might sound like an overstatement but it does feel like a paper and acts a charger.
Hanergy Solar Flexible Paper Charger
First, the flexibility of this solar panel is different than those which folds. With this, you can roll it and sneak it in any corner where possible. You don’t have to worry about cracking the panels because it can really flex.
Can be rolled like a paper
The whole charger is just 1mm thin and weighs only at 110g. It’s water and dust resistant ensuring it can take some rain drops when used outdoors. The only port on the device is a full-size USB port and it’s rated at 5V 1.2A. Not exactly the fastest charging but it gets the job done.
USB output at 5V 1.2A
As claimed by the manufacturer, the panel has a maximum power of 7.7W given that you in an ideal scenario. It’s recommended that you position the panel directly under sunlight and avoid placing under glass as it will magnify the heat which could cause damage to it.
Comes with free carabiners
There’s no setup needed to use the solar charger. Just place it under the sun and plug in your own USB cable and connect it to your phone. Within 5 seconds, based on our own usage, the phone will now receive power from the panels. We tested it with various smartphones to test the output and we were able to get around 700 mAh on average. That’s relatively the same when using a wall charger.
Hooked up to a backpack
The Hanergy Solar Flexible Paper Charger is ideal for camping, hiking, or during emergency scenarios. Speaking of hiking, there are 4 holes on each corner of the sheet and Hanergy included 4 carabiners so you can hang, clip, or hook it anywhere the sun is shining. You can get one through Lazada (see listing here) for Php 7,999 which is pricey but the brand claims the panels to be of top quality which can last for up to 20 years.
