Solar energy is the best form of energy which can be used without any barriers. Now it has reached to multiple levels. It is being used for portable devices. The latest among them is a pair of headphones that can use solar power to charge mobile devices.
OnBeat Solar Headphones are presented as high quality, eco friendly headphones that charge your smartphone or tablet on the move. It has been designed in the UK, by a Glasgow-based designer named Andrew Anderson. He had launched the OnBeat headphones on the crowd-funding site kickstarter. He hopes to raise 200,000 pounds to get the headphones into production and have them on sale by early next year.
The headphone’s headband is fitted with a flexible solar cell with a charge capacity of 0.55 watts. The headphones have an integrated flexible solar cell that covers the full headband which capture solar energy whilst out and about, the energy is stored in two light-weight Lithium Ion batteries held within the two ear cups for a balanced weight and fit on the head.
“We are still working on the design and prototype. We need to improve the headphones – people want to know about noise cancellation,” Anderson continued.
