NEW ORLEANS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GoSolarUSA (PinkSheets: GSLO) announced today that it has created an online waiting list that will allow consumers to reserve the company’s Volt Solar Charger for purchase once the device goes on sale.
“These lucky few will receive the most advanced solar battery pack available for the iPhone absolutely free”
iPhone fans can now visit GoSolarUSA.com, enter an e-mail address and other contact information and expect to be notified first when the Volt Solar Charger becomes available for purchase in North America.
“We’ve had success before with offering customers the opportunity to reserve electronics products using online waiting lists,” Rohde said. “The list helps assure consumers that they’ll be notified as soon as a new product goes on sale and that they’ll have access to special pricing on the item. Since our soft launch of the Volt waiting list, we’ve already received hundreds of reservations, so we know that demand is high for this product.”
The Volt Solar Charger is an external battery pack that attaches to the iPhone and extends its battery life using a top-of-the-line, built-in solar panel. The Volt is capable of harvesting solar energy to charge all versions of the Apple iPhone with the same device. By capturing free, renewable solar power, the Volt recharges the iPhone’s battery first before charging its own internal battery, nearly doubling the smartphone’s talk time. The Volt includes a larger battery than many competitors and is the only iPhone battery pack known to the company to include a reception corrector. Last Wednesday, GSLO announced that the first shipment of Volt demonstration models to reach North America is expected to arrive by the end of this week.
To encourage potential customers to reserve a Volt Solar Charger before they go on sale, GoSolarUSA will give away a Volt to 100 randomly selected people who sign up for the device’s waiting list with no purchase necessary.
“These lucky few will receive the most advanced solar battery pack available for the iPhone absolutely free,” Rohde said. “We’re obviously very proud of this technology, and we can’t wait to show it off to the public.”
Earlier this month, GoSolarUSA announced that the company acquired the exclusive North American distribution rights to the Volt Solar Charger when it signed a distribution agreement with Xiamen Solar Electronics (XSE), the Chinese developer of the Volt. North America is the world’s largest market for iPhone accessories.
The deal is only the latest development in the growing relationship between GSLO and XSE. GoSolarUSA also announced last week that it signed a profit participation agreement with XSE that entitles GSLO to a percentage of XSE’s future net profits worldwide.
GoSolarUSA is dedicated to aggressively acquiring, developing and marketing promising and potentially profitable technology. The Volt Solar Charger is a product of Xiamen Solar Electronics based in Xiamen, China. The iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 are products of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), which competes in the global smartphone market against Google’s (NASDAQ: GOOG) Android devices and the Research in Motion (NASDAQ: RIMM) BlackBerry line.
