Samsung’s Solar Panel-Equipped Netbook Charges In The Sunshine
The first solar powered netbook offers extra mobility and up to 1000 charge cycles.
Samsung has just released its NC215 notebook PC in South Korea, following its launch in Europe, Africa and the U.S. last month. Equipped with a photovoltaic (PV) panel on its back cover, the netbook can run on solar power for about an hour if exposed to sunlight for two hours. When the battery is fully charged, the netbook can be used continuously for up to 14 hours. Up to 1000 charge cycles are supported by Samsung.
