A team of developers based in Brussels, Belgium have created a super small solar charger aptly named the Sunslice, which the team say is the smallest solar charger in the world. Launched by Kickstarter this month the Sunslice is aiming to raise €70,000 during the crowdfunding campaign and is already nearly halfway there thanks to over 250 backers with still 34 days remaining on its campaign. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the super small solar charger which when folded is roughly the same size as a credit card.
The Sunslice solar charger weighs roughly 70 g and is capable of outputting 3 W of charging power and measures just 60 mm x 87 mm. Sunslice can be combined and easily linked together to double your charge speed if required. Its developers explain more about the design, inspiration and features of the Sunslice.
Sunslice is not only the smallest solar charger in the world but it has also the best size-to-power ratio. With the rated power output (announced by the solar panel producers) of its solar panels of 3.6 Watts, it exceeds the power output of much bigger solar chargers. For this comparison, we wrote down the theoretical power output of the solar panels instead of the real power output of the charger. Our competitors only disclose the rated power of the panels, rather the true power output which is slightly inferior. To make it a fair comparison, we compare them with our solar panel’s rated power output in the image above. However, we prefer to announce the real power output of 3 Watts in the general description of the product for transparency.
