Voltaic debuts 6-watt solar panel for mobile devices

Voltaic Systems, one of the leading makers of solar-powered gear, recently announced the addition of a new solar panel to their prolific line of products. The newest sun-harvesting gadget is a 6 Watt, 6 Volt panel the company claims is the perfect size for charging larger smartphones and 7″ tablets.

At less than 9″ long, the waterproof, lightweight 6 Watt panel is easy to stow in a suitcase or back pack, always available if you need a boost while far from an outlet. Joy over the new addition seems to have put Voltaic in an especially good mood, as they also announced a price drop on the 16 Watt Solar Charger Kit and a way to win a free USB Flexlight.

“Three new kits use this panel,” explains Voltaic, “the 6 Watt Kit is great for phones and smaller tablets, the 12 Watt Kit is a fast charger for larger DSLRs and 10″  tablets, and the 18 Watt Kit will charge laptops. You can also connect the 6 Watt panel directly into your existing 4 Watt OffGrid, Fuse 4W, Switch, or Amp to increase your power by 150%” And if you’ve been eye-balling the 16.8 Watt, 18 Volt panel, now’s the time to pull the trigger: the price just dropped from$159 to $129.

As if all of that weren’t exciting enough, Voltaic is also giving you the chance to snag the USB Flexlight–a super-bright and lightweight LED light that plugs into any of the company’s batteries–absolutely free! All you’ve got to do is post a photo of your current Voltaic solar charger, battery or light on the company’s Facebook wall in the month of September. After you’ve posted the picture, simply with your mailing address and the Flexlight will show up at your door.
