Solar Power with power to spare. Joos Orange.

Techstination feature for Wednesday, November 2, 2011

     A solar charger with power to spare.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     There are lots of solar chargers for mobile devices on the market, but many, with small panels, take too long to charge or can store too little power.   That isn’t the case with the Joos Orange from Solar Components.    CEO Warren Sattler…

This thing just works a little more efficiently than everything else out there.   It actually has multiple more times energy production, which means it charges faster.   So for instance, in about one hour of time, out in the sun, it can produce enough energy to allow you talk on your phone for about two hours.”

It’s about the size of an iPad…and is powerful enough to charge one as well.   Another plus is the rugged design.  It’s made for the outdoors.   The Joos Orange sells for about a hundred fifty dollars.   There’s more info at   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
