Portable Solar Power

SkyBuilt Power from Virginia has developed the SkyCase and the SkyPAK for the US Army. Both of them will work in tandem, where the former is a power storage and management module. The SkyCase will come in a weatherproof, crushproof and dustproof case which can be wheeled around like a traveler’s luggage.

The lithium ion batteries inside the SkyCase will feature sophisticated power management and safety features, where among them include graceful degradation, and short circuit/overload protection. There is an LCD read-out panel located on the case’s exterior, where it will let you know of information concerning the battery’s status during charging and discharging cycles.

The SkyPAK Portable Array Kits will work with the SkyCase, being fold-out crystalline solar arrays which are said to be twice as powerful compared to the traditional solar blanket. Since it comes in an accordion design, it is will deploy rapidly.
