on the move may no longer have to tote a heavy load of batteries.
Global Solar has developed the P3—a solar energized power
generator that is lightweight and folds for easy storage. The power

The power pack has double the power-to-weight ratio of alternative
solar generators, according to a company official. For troops on
the move, the power generator enables more time on mission, enhanced
logistics and for the budget conscious, a significant savings over
stocking use-and-lose batteries.
