funGaia's solar power banks power mobile devices ranging from cell phones to digital cameras

funGaia, a division of Golden Bridge Electech, announced two new solar mobile power banks this year at Computex.  The company specializes in the development of solar energy products that provide power to handheld devices such as cell phones, MP3 players, and digital cameras.  

The solar power banks are comprised of two parts: a control module and a solar module. The solar module is laminated with durable and waterproof material, allowing it to be used in various weather conditions. The solar bank also features a "triple-junction amorphous" silicon solar cell, which enhances its ability to absorb different wavelengths of light and increase efficiency. The power cells are able to absorb all photons of visible light. In addition, the solar module remains completely flexible, making it easier to transport.

Once solar power has been absorbed, it is transferred to the control module, which can be charged through either solar energy or through a wall plug. A lithium-polymer battery powers the control module. The control module supports 5V/6V voltage adjustments and outputs power to devices through a built-in USB 2.0 connector. Three status LEDs -- red, orange, and green -- show the charging status of the control module.

funGaia will be selling two versions of the solar power banks: the "Regulus" and the "Zubene." Both versions are identical to each other in terms of features; however, the only difference is the color of the control module.  The Zubene and Regulus will both launch around September for $129.
