Indoor Solar Development Kit (DEV-IN-BASIC)
Where To Buy


PowerFilm's Research and Development Engineer, Sam Jones, demonstrates the Indoor Solar Development Kit and a few of the many different devices it can power.


The Indoor Solar Development Kit makes integrating indoor solar into electronics simple. It consists of an energy harvesting module with integrated power management designed and optimized for Indoor Series Solar Panels. 


The DEV-IN-BASIC kit uses a nano-power boost charging technology to efficiently extract energy from the indoor solar, even in dimly lit environments down to 200 lux and below. The integrated power management can be configured to store the collected energy into various storage element technologies. An output power rail is used to provide power to external electronics.
