SunPartner Technologies And 3M Collaborate To Deliver The Only Wireless Transparent Solar Charging System For Consumer Mobile Electronics

Sunpartner Technologies and 3M Company announce an agreement to collaborate in product development and technical solutions, capitalizing on innovative engineered electronics materials from 3M and transparent solar cell technologies from Sunpartner Technologies. The two companies are developing a sustainable wireless transparent micro component that will charge devices while they are being used and exposed to light. This game-changing development will give consumers the ability to charge their mobile phones and tablets with just natural or artificial light -- no electrical outlets needed to power.

Combining 3M Optically Clear Adhesives with SunPartner’s Wysips® Crystal drives this innovative advance in consumer electronics energy management. Wysips®—What You See Is Photovoltaic Surface—transforms any surface into a solar panel that can generate its own energy from natural or artificial light. These photovoltaic cells activate from the moment they are exposed to light and charge the battery or power the equipment they are connected to, revolutionizing businesses and the daily lives of consumers with electronics always at the ready.

Wysips® ultra-thin transparent photovoltaic layer is embedded into electronic displays and supplies enough energy to keep the device charged, so it will not run out of power. The more sophisticated phones and their integrated features -- apps, gaming, movies, books, email, web -- suck the life out of batteries – a common complaint among consumers. Extended battery life is, therefore, taking on ever-greater importance in consumer purchase decisions. The continuous solar charge makes phones always accessible– indoors or outdoors.

The combination of SunPartner’s Wysips® Crystal technology with 3M Optically Clear Adhesives will be a sustainable answer to the consumer electronics industry’s energy management needs.

Based on core 3M adhesive technology, 3M Optically Clear Adhesives are precision-manufactured to eliminate common adhesive visual defects such as bubbling, which can distort the display and diminish consumer satisfaction with their device. 3M OCA’s precisely meet specific display bonding requirements with the unique ability to customize the functionality, reactivity and performance of the adhesive.

3M’s collaborative culture and bench-to-bench approach, combined with electronics materials expertise, breadth of product portfolio and alignment with key consumer electronics industry leaders strategically complement SunPartner’s emerging technologies presenting a sustainable and innovative answer to demanding industry needs.
