2014 CES Innovation Awards
AspectSolar's SunSocket Solar Generator was honored by the CES
Innovation Awards in January of 2014. In recognition of its advances in
portable power, the judges selected the Solar Generator as a leader in
innovation. It was the first product in AspectSolar's line and it
debuted our commitment to advanced technology. The generator utilized
both highly-efficient monocrystalline PV cells on its solar panels and a
lightweight LiFePO4 battery. Never before had portable power like that
fit into the size of a briefcase and weighed barely 25 lbs.
Beyond that, the SunSocket Solar Generator was the first in the
world to use sun-tracking technology to follow the arc of the sun across
the sky throughout the day. This was the only solar generator in the
world to use sun-tracking technology at the time. With optimal
positioning all day long, the SunSocket Solar Generator could charge its
own massive battery in only 5 hours of sunlight.
