As portable chargers go, the Regen’s ReNu puts a personal solar panel into a sleek, innovative design that will make charging your electronic devices a snap. Weighing 500g (1.1 lbs), this cool 9′ x 9′ portable charger can hang on a window with a suction cup, be attached to a window frame or be placed on a table or desk with its built-in stand. In direct sunlight, ReNu’s built-in solar cells collect the sun’s energy to charge its internal lithium ion battery.
When fully charged, dock it with one of Regen’s several docking extensions (a phone charging system, a personal audio system, or a task lighting system), or use it to deliver stored energy to gadgets like mobile phones, portable navigation devices, backup batteries, and portable lights through it’s built-in USB port. Priced at $199, the ReNu will begin shipping in February 2010. Pre ordering will save $25.
The ReNu personal power generation and storage system combines light power with a whole family of ReNu personal electronics. Match a charged ReNu panel to any Regen component and the sun’s energy will power the personal electronics you use everyday.
