Odersun's components are fully integrated into consumer products such as solar bags. These solar bags constantly store solar energy to provide energy anytime. Noon Solar bags incorporate flexible solar panels to keep cell phones and iPods charged and each bag is designed to be able to sit in a window at work or in the car to collect charges. The solar power is stored in a lithium-ion battery pack, weighing about 4oz, found inside the bag. Because the solar power is stored inside a battery pack, cell phones and iPods can be charged day or night. Noon Solar bags are made from biodegradable materials, with the solar panel and hardware able to be removed and recycled or reused.
