iSun™ is a portable, modular solar DC electricity generator with approx. 2 watts of power output, 50% more than any comparable devices on the global market. It can charge a MP3 player, or keep the GPS at full power, all thanks to it’s reliable solar panels.


The iSun™ is for the business / city type. The iSun™ comes with 7 plugs that fits in most electronics found on the market today: Discman, GPS, MP3 player, Walkman and cell phones.

The iSun™ is for the outdoors person. The one who’s always on the go. The one who needs power when there’s none to be found. Now, you can take longer trips with no fear of your GPS going dead.

The iSun™ project began in 1999 with research in the market requirements for renewable portable power. Close to 1000 man-hours were spent researching various portable electronics and consumer’s desires in regards to portable power.

With its universal “plug n’play” connection socket, iSun™ can be attached to power / recharge / trickle-charge batteries for personal electronics (e.g. cellular phones, PDA, laptops, walkman, mp3 players), automotive accessories, leisure (e.g. camping) and other consumer applications with direct connections or using product-specific cables. iSun’s replicator docking mechanism means that power can also be boosted by daisy chaining units together, which results in more power.

The iSun™ and iSun™ Sport solar chargers convert sunlight into an electrical current. How? Light particles (photons) penetrate the solar cell causing electrons to become agitated. This results in the flow of direct current (DC) electricity. The more sunshine, the more power the iSun™ will produce.

The iSun™ unit can be used in all sunny conditions. Naturally, the brightest conditions will yield better charging output.

Easy as 1, 2, 3.

1) Of the 7 adapter plugs included with iSun™, choose the plug that best fits your electronic’s power input and connect it to the iSun power cable.

2) Remove the cap on the right side of the iSun™ and connect the power cable to the iSun™ output.

3) Position the iSun™ towards the sun. Now, you are ready to go and power up anywhere at anytime.

Need more power?

Just add another iSun™, and another, and another…

The iSun™ can operate small electronic appliances that require less than 2 watts.

Multiple iSun™ units connected together can operate any small electronic appliances that require more than 2 watts.

Daisy-chaining two units with another one can double the power output. Repeat as necessary (up to 5 times).

iSun™ Accessories (included)

The iSun™ portable solar powered battery / cell phone charger is the most complete solar charger for small electronic appliances on the market today. It comes with plugging accessories that enable you to operate over 90% of all small electronic appliances.

As shown the accessories that are included with the iSun™ are: a female socket adapter cable, 2 suction caps (to attach the iSun™ to a window), a power cable, a 2.5mm male adapter, a 3.5mm male adapter, a 5.5×2.5mm female adapter, a 5.5×2.1mm female adapter, a 5.0×2.1mm female adapter, a 4.0×1.7mm female adapter and a 3.5×1.4mm female adapter.
