In the mid of last month on 4/18 I posted a comment; the link is provided below:

http://www.eetimes.com/messages.asp?piddl_msgthreadid=44785&piddl_msgid=296886#msg_296886

I mentioned: "...there should have been a technology such that the display of the mobile device (or a transparent screen on it...the screen protector itself) to be able to harvest electrical energy from the solar energy to charge the battery of the device, so that my mobile will get charged on the way to my office..."

Hope to see a product around this idea sooner than I expected!!! But, did they stole my idea?.... LOL

Btw...what is the time taken by the super-cap to get completely charged with solar touch scree (patented by Apple)and how long the supercap would hold the charge on typical phone usage?

 looks more suited for supplemental power-AZskibum


You are right now, since its only 1/10th the density of Li-ion today, but the researchers claim that they could rival NiMH very soon and current Li-ion in just a few years. Of course, Li-ion will have moved on by then to even higher densities, and others like Li-air will be on the scene too. Nevertheless for devices that have significantly more volume in their cases than their existing Li-ion battery takes up, building the battery into the case could become the primary power source.

Maybe for supplemental power

This is an interesting concept, but looks more suited for supplemental power -- extending operating time beyond what the normal lithium ion battery delivers -- rather than the primary energy storage device.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
