Printing Solar-cell: Design & Print Your Own Solar Panel

Printing Solar-cell is a cartridge module that prints solar-cells using a domestic, ink-jet printer. Existing solar-cells insert a high-tech circuit onto the top of a metal board, using a lot of money and facing difficulties with commercialization—compared to the power efficiency of solar-cell. The new design of Printing Solar-cell is made up of an organic solar-cell cartridge and exclusive USB connector. Users can print solar-cell easily with the relevant ink cartridge and unused printers. Also, users can design patterns that are used in solar-cell by themselves with given guidelines. They can charge their electronics anywhere holding the printed solar-cell on a copy paper as well.
