Abstract:

Portable electronic equipment, whether military or civilian, now typically contain rechargeable batteries. Often it is inconvenient or impossible to connect this equipment to conventional battery charging sources. It would be highly desirable to incorporate a built-in battery recharging source with the equipment to overcome this shortcoming. Ideally this recharging source should not take up any extra volume or add weight to the portable equipment. The proposed research will investigate the use of a photovoltaic power source, included in a molded case, to provide built-in battery recharging.
