Imagine a world without wires. Konarka’s Power Plastic converts light energy into electricity for your portable devices, so you never have to plug them in to a wall socket. The light-weight plastic technology offers a cheaper alternative to the current silicon-based cells which currently dominate the solar energy market.
Konarka plans to incorporate their Power Plastic into the sides of military tents to create portable electric buildings, and they’re making small sheets of the plastic that could charge cell phones or other devices. Could a solar-powered cordless battery station be far off?
