Solar-powered action camera charges itself in about an hour

Mountable motion cameras are fairly cool, however virtually all of them share the identical deadly flaw: restricted battery life. At greatest, most cameras will solely report continously for a number of hours earlier than calling it quits for the day. What in the event you might get extra recording time with out swapping out batteries? That is the thought behind the Activeon Photo voltaic X — a photo voltaic-powered motion digital camera.

The Activeon Photo voltaic X is a 4K motion digital camera with a 2-inch touchscreen, WiFi help for transferring content material to an iOS or Android system and two hours of inbuilt battery life — however you will get that from virtually any motion digital camera. What makes the Photo voltaic X particular is that it may nab a further 4 hours of use time when used with its “X Station” photo voltaic panels. By some means want extra than six hours of recording time? Don’t be concerned about it: the entire thing will recharge to full in about an hour (or eighty% in simply half-hour).

With the ability to cost your motion digital camera on the go sounds fairly cool, however it’s a function you will have to attend for: the $450 Photo voltaic X will not hit retail shops till March.
