High-Voltage Solar Cell Makes Flexible Solar Panels for Consumer Electronics More Feasible

  A new, relatively high-voltage solar cell that can charge the li-ion batteries of portable electronics such as e-book readers and cellphones in partial shade has been created by the University of Warwick and Molecular Solar. This type of solar cell is called an organic solar cell, plastic solar cell, or organic photovoltaic cell (OPV). Professor […]
