Solar Powered Jacket

Tommy Hilfiger and solar design and fabrication manufacturer Pvilion introduce a new pair of jackets allowing wearers to charge gadgets - be they: portable phones, tablets, iPod or a handheld gaming system - via the apparel's inbuilt solar panels. The limited-edition solar-powered men and women's jackets sport an excluisve tartan developed by English wool mill Abraham Moon, as well as the, energy providing, removable solar panels. Tommy Hilfiger said: "I'm excited to introduce wearable technology into our collection this Fall season. We were inspired by the fusion of traditional design techniques with technical mountaineering references. We also thought about what the adventurer of today would need and how our customers are interacting with technology in a more integrated way than ever before. Our solar power jacket celebrates classic design and tailored outerwear with innovative solar technology. The detachable Pvilion solar panels snap easily on and off the back of the limited-edition jackets, while a cable running discreetly through the garment's lining connects the panels to a removable battery pack in the jacket's front pocket. A special snap-flap closure provides easy access to the battery pack, and its double USB port allows the user to conveniently connect it with up to two mobile phones, tablets or e-reader devices via USB cord. The battery pack can also be charged via a laptop or external power outlet, and when not in use, it stores energy for use at a later time. The water resistant, lightweight removable solar panel unit is made with flexible amorphous silicon technology developed by Pvilion - a specialist in designing and manufacturing lightweight, portable solar products. When exposed to full sunlight, the high output solar cells can fully charge the battery pack which, in turn, can fully charge a standard 1500mAh mobile device up to four times. The women's three-quarter length jacket is made with bright blue nylon and an exclusive wool tart at Worldwide - - Tuesday 9th December 2014 (6 Pictures)
