Solar ChumAlong – personal solar tracking for your urgent power up needs

Solarchumalong

The Solar ChumAlong solar tracking system is a solar charging panel that automatically track the sun just like those big expensive arrays you see in science fiction movies. It is also portable and lightweight which means you can take it with you on picnics or hikes to power up your absolutely must have electrical gadgets. The fact that the solar panel is always facing the sun means that you’ll receive optimum light for the cell charging, which makes us wonder just how inefficient conventional solar cells are when you plunk them down in the window. $399.00 complete with a 5W solar panel.

 ChumAlong is a device for orienting a solar photovoltaic panel toward the sun. As the sun’s position in the sky varies during the day, ChumAlong’s™ job is to make sure the Solar Panel is always pointing at the brightest point in the sky. Accomplishing this ensures that the solar panel can deliver it’s maximum output from available sunlight of the day. 30%-50% increases in efficiency can be obtained over conventional stationary methods! Setup takes only a few minutes and requires no tools.
