Here’s a new solar-powered consumer tech product to check out. The new Solab autonomous thin-film solar battery charger is the byproduct of a collaboration between Ascent Solar in Colorado and Germany’s CTC GmbH. The flexible solar panel is designed to be used in a variety of ways. It has settings for different battery types, such as lead, nickel metal hydride, nickel-cadmium, lithium ion, and others.

Trickle charging is available when a battery is charged. Feedback on a battery’s charge status is provided. Also, charging of electronics using USB is possible.

The flexible thin-film panel is designed to be unbreakable and durable. Additionally, it has no sharp edges so it doesn’t damage anything around it.
