JOOS Orange solar charger packs 20X the power

Posted by | Last Updated : 1672 days ago

JOOS Orange claims to be able to produce 20 times more power than any personal solar charger on the market.  Their chart shows that they have 120 minutes of talk time per hour of sun, but rate competitors at just 20 minutes of talk time per hour of sun.

The Joos Orange produced by Solar Products is designed for use with personal electronics such as phones, MP3 players, and GPS devices. It runs a 5-inch mono-crystalline solar cell and a replaceable 3.7 volt, 5,400mAh lithium-ion polymer battery. Just one minute of sun-time generates enough energy to get your cell phone up and running again

It’s also rugged and waterproof, using a polycarbonate case encapsulated in urethane to last for many years of outdoor use, and with a non-yellowing urethane instead of an epoxy-based coating, it won’t turn yellow in the sun after. The charger will be available sometime in June for under $100.

Archos 7 & Archos 8 Home Tablets Review on Cnet
3/5

“The good: The Archos 7 Home Tablet delivers a large screen, slim design, microSDHC-based memory expansion, and a familiar Android operating system, all for an unbeatable price.
The bad: Its resistive touch screen is clunky, the processor is sluggish, storage is skimpy, and basic buttons for home screen and volume control are missing. There’s no support for Adobe Flash, Bluetooth, GPS, video output, accelerometer, digital compass, and multitouch, and previous Archos tablet accessories are incompatible. App support is hit or miss–mostly miss.”

Archos 7 & Archos 8 Home Tablets Review on Laptopmag
2.5/5

” At $199, this slate costs less than half the price of the Apple iPad. So what are you giving up? The Archos 7 doesn’t support Flash, it lacks a webcam, and the Android Market is off limits. On the other hand, this device provides an inexpensive way to browse the web and check e-mail, and it supports a ton of media formats for playback. The kickstand is also a nice perk. Is the Archos 7 worth a look, or do you have to set your expectations too low?”

Archos 7 & Archos 8 Home Tablets review on PCWorld
2.5/5

“The Archos 7 performs a set of core tasks reasonably well, and comes at very reasonable price of $199. On the other hand, the touchscreen is hard to operate, and you can’t buy new apps at the Android Market. Many Android smartphones in the same price range (with contract) perform much better and can access better apps, although the Archos 7 does bring a larger screen. People who want a low-priced Android tablet now may be happy with the purchase. However, I can’t help thinking that you’d be able to get more for your buck from the spate of new Android tablets that will hitting the shelves in the coming months.”

Archos 7 & Archos 8 Home Tablets on Engadget

“The Archos 7 Home Tablet: ’tis really a story of you get what you pay for. We knew that the lack of an accelerometer, capacitive screen and access to the Android Market would be major downers, and, well, they were. Obviously, those things would jack up the price, and though the Archos 7 does some things decently, like play onboard videos and display e-books, for $199 we still wish it did more for the price, or was even cheaper. And depending on what you’re looking for, you’re hard earned cash may be better spent an iPod Touch, Sony Dash, or a Kindle or Nook. But look, if you’re desperate to get your hands on a larger screen Android tablet and have $200 saved, the Archos 7 Home Tablet is really your only option at the moment, though we’re hopeful that some of its soon-to-arrive competitors will impress us more.”
