- It’s tough: Super durable and waterproof, and reliably delivers power where and when you need it. The JOOS Orange works in real-world light conditions – overcast, in the shade, and even light rain.
How it works
Just put the JOOS Orange in the sun and you are ready to go – it’s really that easy! Your JOOS Orange has multi- positional legs that pull out from the back of the unit. Adjust the legs into a position that angles the solar cell to best face the sun.
You can capture solar energy to charge your devices immediately, or store the energy in the on-board battery for later use. Because it captures power so efficiently, the JOOS Orange will charge your devices even if its internal battery is empty.
You can also charge your JOOS Orange from your computer – or any USB power source.
Why it’s the best
Highest efficiency commercially available, monocrystalline solar cell with silicon nitride, anti-reflective coating (125x125mm, 2.6W max)
Solar cells connected in parallel – provides power when shaded.
Replaceable lithium-ion polymer battery, 20Wh/5400mAh
Charge Time: 12 hours Direct Sun/8 hours USB.
Urethane encapsulation of solar cells for durability, long-life, high transmissivity (no yellowing), and waterproofing.
8 bit microprocessor (microchip) with proprietary algorithm to control MPPT, battery charge circuitry, LED’s and PV power/battery charge monitoring GUI.
Battery charge and PV power indicator LED’s.
Low light power circuitry.
Dead battery circuitry.
Urethane potted electronics for waterproofing.
Proprietary connector in battery compartment for diagnostics.
Durable, polycarbonate injection-molded case.
Metal heat sink.
Security cable hole.
Adjustable legs to optimize orientation to sun.
Performance-enhancing heat reduction ventilation.
Waterproof/submersible design – rated NEMA 6P.
FCC A+B, CE, RoHS certified.
Compatible with optional reflectors to improve power production by up to 50%.
Charges by USB from computer or other USB power source.
JOOS Orange captures up to 20 times more energy than other solar chargers. 1 hour in the direct sun = 2 hours 3G talk time. The large 5,400mAh replaceable battery pack holds enough energy to charge your smart phone several times, and can even charge an iPhone about two and a half times. Add the optional Power-Boost Reflector Kitand improve charge times up to 40%.
JOOS Orange is designed to charge all personal electronic devices (cell phones, smart phones, MP3 players, GPS devices, portable game devices, etc.) Its thin rectangular shape makes JOOS Orange easy to carry and store. Adjustable legs make pointing it towards the sun a breeze.And, if you don’t get outside much, the on-board battery can be charged from your computer or any USB power source.
Most important, the JOOS Orange is rock-solid reliable. The internal battery pack will keep its charge for years. And the JOOS Orange keeps charging when submerged in water.
