Solar panels for laptops

There was time when a solar panel was only powerful enough to get a calculator going, but technology has improved and research is producing more powerful solar panels that are claimed to be good enough to power a laptop.

According to Intel, currently laptops and other portable devices use a single power source, this can be battery or mains, but the addition of solar panels could extend the life of the battery in some case by several hours, which could be very useful for users who are away from the office or home.

This is a useful idea and works on the hybrid principle, where the battery would be charged as normal, but when it is in use the solar panels replaces some of the power used, but not all, yet!
