[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas - QuickerTek, the technology leader in mobile power and wireless networking for Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) computers, announces the 62 Watt Solar Juicz solar power charger. This a new, higher performance solar charger with new faster-charging technology that packs more power in a smaller size. Apple MacBook Pro, Retina display and MacBook Air users now have the freedom solar power offers and the satisfaction of lowering the carbon footprint.
QuickerTek packs an impressive improvement in efficiency of more than 39% over our previous Solar Juicz model as a direct result of using new technology as well as a philosophy of continual improvement. Faster charge time is provided by higher wattage (62 Watts vs 55 Watts of previous model). Of course, users can charge the laptop battery while using the Solar Juicz at the same time - something not possible using other solar products. If you have sunlight, you have power, whenever you need it.
Solar Juicz users gain 1.5 to 2 times greater power than more common thin-film flexible solar materials, by using new Copper Indium Gallium DiSelenide (CIGS). CIGS yields an amazing 10.5 to 11% average efficiency - ideal for power on the go. There is no other CIGS technology solar product available for any Apple device. MacBook users can now spend even more time working away from the wall power outlet. Even if the laptop battery is completely dead, the Solar Juicz charges and powers the MacBook laptop simultaneously.
CIGS technology offers these user benefits:
* Highest efficiency thin-film photo voltaic delivers faster charge times
* Highest efficiency energy produced under varying light conditions makes solar efficient more often
* Raw materials availability helps to reduce prices, while remaining environmentally friendly
The 62 Watt Solar Juicz also comes ready to use right out of the box with either a Apple Magsafe 1 or a Apple Magsafe 2 power cable. This allows users to power and charge a wide variety of mobile devices from Apple. Solar Juicz also charges QuickerTek's extensive line of Apple Juicz external battery products. QuickerTek also regularly makes custom cables for users who need the convenience of solar power for other devices, such as digital still and video cameras.
The solar panel itself is flexible - allowing for easy transport and use. The higher efficiency technology is only 1534 square inches - 40% more compact than the previous 2478 square inches. The lighter and flexbile solar panel also adapts to irregular surfaces better - providing an easy way to use the sun, regardless of the surroundings.
The new 62 Watt Solar Juicz has a new lower Suggested Retail Price of $999.00 USD - available from QuickerTek's worldwide dealer network. Like most QuickerTek products, the new Solar Juicz 62 Watt is backed with a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
