Solar start-up Rawlemon's Andre Broessel, a German designer, has developed a round sun-tracking solar power generator to revolutionise renewable resource and solar power on Earth. The Rawlemon design uses a spherical lens to focus both sunshine and moonlight up to 10,000 times on a small photovoltaic panel and combines this with a dual-axis pivot that tracks the motion of the sun. By focusing the sun's light in one location, the Rawlemon design decreases the solar battery surface area needed to just 1% of that needed by a standard panel making its solar harvesting capabilities 35% more reliable than conventional dual-axis photovoltaic designs. In addition, poor weather condition would not impact the gadget, since of an integrated weather tracking system.
Rawlemon has brought a variety of devices to market. The 10-cm (3.9-in) Beta.ey S phone battery charger works with any phone that utilizes a USB 2.0 charging port and has a battery storage capacity of 27.5 Whr. The other devices consist of Beta.ey S Scandal sheet ($489) and a Beta.ey XL ($999) created for charging tablets.
The 100-cm (39.4-in) Beta.ray 1.0 create up to 1.1 kWh a day enough to run a laptop for about 2 days. It has a 1.8 kWh battery. The 180-cm (70.1-in) Beta.ray 1.8 generate up to 3.4 kWh a day enough to run a laptop computer for nearly a week. It has a 5.4 kWh battery. Both the Beta.ray 1.0 and 1.8 function water-filled acrylic-polymer lenses and create thermal energy along with solar. And there's a $6,000 package too that includes the full-sized Beta.ray constructed for the outdoors.
He aimed to raise $120,000 on his Indiegogo advocate more testing, and for patent applications and raised $230,971 by March 10, 2014.
