Solar powered device and battery charger leads new line of dependable, on-the-go power solutions from Kodak
London, July 29, 2009 — Eastman Kodak Company today introduced a family of new portable power-charging solutions that enable fast and convenient charging of multiple devices, including a solar-powered charger that harnesses the sun’s power to charge gadgets while on the go.
“Millions of consumers rely on multiple devices for work and play, and need dependable sources of power for them anytime, anywhere,” says Carolyn Walsh, Product Sales Director, CDG, FPG, UK & Ireland. “Our new KODAK chargers provide reliable portable power and hours of extended run time for any USB-charging compatible gadget.”
Leading the new line of chargers is the KODAK Solar Charger KS100-C+2, which produces enough power to deliver 1.5 charges to a mobile phone, or run an iPod or other music player for an additional 33 hours, or capture up to 200 digital camera pictures (actual results will vary by device).
“Consumers can rely on this charger for power anywhere the sun shines, even when they’re far from electrical service,” Walsh says. “And on an everyday basis, they can charge the unit on a window sill or under a desk lamp, and it’ll be ready to go when they are.”
When light is scarce, consumers can use the included USB cable to recharge from a computer or other USB power source.
