Let us think of outdoor electronic devices like the systems in weather station, some sensors or a data logger. In most of the conditions no power outlet is available and then we have to switch to batteries but they also soon gets off. So this solar power unit is designed to power your devices easily with very high power efficiency.
Why use solar power for low power applications?
Solar power is most easiest and most practical way to produce energy and to drive our future to a better tomorrow. However, solar power is not just a niche! One day, we will all be using solar power for every small and big applications and then solar energy would not be a non conventional source of energy.
By using solar power for low power applications, we are taking big step towards solar power for small electronic devices. This enables a new class of embedded systems.
When you have a project like weather station, remote data logger, etc. or applications like this, you do not have to keep your sensing units on all the time. And of course in all this applications, powering is the major issue. If you turn on the the unit in 5 minute, it can save a lot energy. This unit has time delay of 5 minutes. The unit can also power your units when there is no sunlight(at night) as it has a rechargeable battery inside.
It’s not just a solar powering unit and not just a timer. It’s a combination of both of them!
