Hi-Tech Wealth S116 world’s first solar-powered mobile phone

Hi-Tech Wealth, Inc. a leading consumer sales and marketing Chinese company engaged in the development and distribution of proprietary and branded digital mobile devices, today announced the launch of the world’s first commercialized solar-powered mobile phone, the S116. The S116 solar-powered mobile phone incorporates Hi-Tech Wealth’s established and well-known information security technology, supports a T-Flash card and features a 1.3 megapixel camera. Over 20 patents have been filed in China to protect the S116’s advanced technology.

When exposed to direct sunlight for 60 minutes, the S116 battery allows for 40 minutes of talk time. Even when exposed to “weak light” such as sunlight on an overcast day, indoor lighting or candle light, the S116 generates enough electricity to charge the battery. Hi-Tech Wealth has already received pre-orders for 50,000 units. The S116 retails in China for USD$510.
