Bookeen innovates by launching the first integrated solar cover that charges the reader

September 15th, 2016
PRESS RELEASE: Paris, September 15, 2016

solarleafcover1

Bookeen is writing a new chapter in the history of technology by offering a cover able to charge the reader thanks to a photovoltaic sheet.

A solar cover for Cybook Ocean

Solar energy accompanies us in the world of literature.

This solar sheet dresses Cybook Ocean with elegance, equipped with a big 8-inch screen. Today, the joy of digital reading overcomes all constrains, through the ability to read in the dark thanks to the FrontLight technology, in full sunshine without reflection on a E-ink screen while gaining in battery life thanks to this new solar cover.

On a hike, on the beach or in the park, it is therefore possible to charge its reader by sunlight without cluttering up with spare batteries, cables and plugs. Because reading is a simple, personal and authentic pleasure, Bookeen favors a natural way of charging to intensify this special moment.

An exclusive design

solarleafcover2

Rather than adding a bulky external charger, photovoltaic cells are invisible and perfectly integrated in a unique and exclusive design carefully thought by Bookeen (the cover is particularly thin). They are dissimulated by an elegant tree leaf that reminds us of the essence of paper, suggesting natural photosynthesis. Through technology, the leaf, source of life, becomes once again a fundamental element of reading.

For Michael Dahan, founder of Bookeen: “Thanks to the progress made in energy recovery and the extreme frugality of electronical ink screens, Bookeen offers for the first time to the world an independent reader that permanently charges using light. Going on a deserted island with your reader is now a dream-come-true”.

How it works

With this innovative product, the 125 cm² / 19 inch² of protection cover integrate an optical printed grid to solar modules. Thanks to the photovoltaic effect (production of energy using a light source), the solar modules react and enable to independently charge the reader. The solar cover feeds on rays and therefore extends the battery life of the reader.

solarleafcover3

A one-hour exposure of the cover in alluring brightness (25 000 lux et +) is enough to charge the reader for one more day of reading autonomy (30 minutes of daily reading).

Two companies of the French Tech

To develop this solution, Bookeen has joined another French company, SunPartner technologies, by using the Wysips Graphics® technology in the cover.

Sustainable innovation!

Users are searching for efficient and simple solutions for the autonomy of their electronical devices. The innovation that Bookeen offers puts forward products with clean energy and non-polluting like sun energy.

Availability and price

The Solar Leaf Cover will be available from September 15 at the price of 59,99 € TTC / 67 USD / 50 GBP at www.Bookeen.com.

This cover is exclusively compatible to Cybook Ocean of Bookeen.

The Solar Leaf Cover will also be available for Carrefour’s reader 8’’ Nolimbook XL in all Carrefour distribution chain.

Bookeen in short

Based in Paris, Bookeen is the French leader of digital reader solutions. The superiority of its technical quality and its digital reading solutions have allowed Bookeen to develop partnerships with large retailers, independent bookstores, and numerous distribution leaders like Brazil’s Saraiva, France’s Carregour in a number of European countries, Adlibris in Sweden, Norway, Finland, or E.Leclerc.
