Solio to Release Solar Hybrid Charger

first_img The new solar hybrid rechargeable device by Solio will be released on October 15, 2007. The Solio H1000 Universal recharger is powered by small solar panels that can hold a charge for up to one year. The device is for the on-the-go back packer or anyone interested in conservation. The great news is the price. The small, sleek and handsome device sells for less than 80 USD.According to the Solio press release, the hand-held device has a universal adapter that is compatible with nearly all electronic devices. It comes ready to use right out of the box. It also comes with adjustable adaptor tips for iPod, iPhone and most MP3 players. It works on GPS devices and most cellular phones. A fully charged Solio H1000 will power a cell phone or provide 10 hours of play time for a MP3 Player. According to Solio the hand-held device solar energy storage breaks down to one hour of sunshine for 15 minutes of cell phone talk time. One hour of sunshine equals 40 minutes of MP3 music time. The alternative cable tip that fits into any USB port is also included. This allows the user to charge the device from any computer. The smart hybrid device has a 1.5 to 5 watts output. It has a 5-6 watt input capability and the Solio Hybrid 1000 measures 198 x 68 x 144 mm. The solar output is .6 watts. The total weight of the device is slightly over a pound. Solio is a company that is dedicated to finding alternative energy sources for electronic devices. The devices may be used for emergency power sources or an alternative energy source. The company has been invited to the 2007 Clinton Global Annual Meeting. Solio has been reviewed and appeared on American TV and popular electronic publications. The application for its use in energy deprived countries or rural areas makes this an exciting new device. The Solio Hybrid 1000 will go on sale October 15, 2007.

New study finds stars in metalrich galactic areas explode more violently

first_img(Phys.org) —A team of researchers working in China has found evidence to suggest that stars that exist in metal-rich galactic areas tend to explode more violently when they go supernova, than do stars that explode in less metal-rich areas. In their paper published in the journal Science, describing their research, the team details how after analyzing data from the remnants of 188 type 1a supernovas, they found that those stars that existed in metal-rich areas and maybe in younger systems, tended to produce more violent explosions and associated diverse spectral features.

Credit: NASA/MPIA/Calar Alto Observatory, Oliver Krause et al. © 2013 Phys.orgcenter_img More information: Evidence for Two Distinct Populations of Type Ia Supernovae, Science DOI: 10.1126/science.1231502ABSTRACTType Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) have been used as excellent standardizable candles for measuring cosmic expansion, but their progenitors are still elusive. Here, we report that the spectral diversity of SNe Ia is tied to their birthplace environments. We find that those with high-velocity ejecta are substantially more concentrated in the inner and brighter regions of their host galaxies than are normal-velocity SNe Ia. Furthermore, the former tend to inhabit larger and more-luminous hosts. These results suggest that high-velocity SNe Ia likely originate from relatively younger and more metal-rich progenitors than normal-velocity SNe Ia, and are restricted to galaxies with substantial chemical evolution. Scientists have come to believe that supernovas come about in a process that involves a white dwarf. But because a single white dwarf isn’t large enough to set off an explosion, they believe a second star must be involved as well—either another white dwarf as a binary system or via accretion of material by a companion star. Researchers can’t tell using current methods which was involved when studying particular supernovas. In this new effort, the researchers believe they might have found a way to do so.By studying and comparing the spectral features of 188 type 1a supernovas and the galactic geography of the area in which they exploded, the researchers discovered what they believe is a pattern that they claim hints at the nature of the progenitor star that led to the explosion—those in metal-rich areas tended to produce more violent explosions. This suggest it’s more likely that the more violent explosions are the result of a white dwarf pulling mass from a companion star—one similar to our own, or perhaps a red giant—than the result of a binary white dwarf system exploding.Understanding the nature of supernovas is critical to understanding the universe in general, as they are used to measure distances between objects—such measurements have led to the discovery that the universe is expanding, for example. For that reason, it would be helpful to know which sorts of stars lead to their creation and why they behave the way they do when they explode. This new research appears to be one more step in that direction. Journal information: Science This document is subject to copyright.
