These cells (measuring 7 x 4.5") produce between 8-9 V and 280-310 mA in ideal sun conditions (outdoors, noonish, at picnic, perhaps....Not a cloud in the sky), enough juice to power an arduino directly with no additional circuitry. Specific outputs may vary slightly from cell to cell, but even indoors, on a window sill, it more then possible for these cells to produce between 5-6 V, and over 100 mA. Each cell is completely sealed for out door use, and comes outfitted with a 5.5mm X 2.1mm female barrel plug (center positive), that can be plugged directly into an arduino, or easily connected to a breadboard. ITP has 12 of these cells available for student use.

Charged via the ITP roof top panel, these Powerpacks have a built in power inverter, outputting both 120 V AC (the same as a standard wall socket), and 12 V DC current. Simply plug in any standard AC device to one of the Powerpacks 2 sockets, and you're ready to go. The 60 ah battery pack is capable of running, when fully charged, a 25W laptop computer for over a day, a 20" LCD monitor for over 11 hours, and even a full size fridge for 4 hours or so. For more information on the Powerpacks, please feel free to take a look [[http://www.xantrex.com/web/id/63/p/docs/pt/24/product.asp | Xantrex's user guide and data sheet.]] ITP currently has 2 of these packs available for student projects. Please contact Chris Cerrito @ cdc214@nyu.edu to schedule a time for use.

Complete with it's own 2W, rugged solar panel, a 6.5V 2aH gell battery, a built in charge controller, a 5V USB port, and a high power LED, the SunTransfer2 Solar Lamp and mobile phone charger was developed to bring light and power to off the grid third world communities. This unit can be used as a stand alone, solar power system for small physical computing projects. There are currently 8 of these units available for student use. For more information on using the SunTransfer2, please look [[Suntransfer2 Page | here.]]
