The deliverymen from Delivery Club Company will get backpacks with solar panels for charging mobile phones. This experiment will take place in Moscow, Krasnodar and Kazan. The solar modules for backpacks were developed and produced by R&D center Hevel. Their power is 12,2 W, a capacity is 6000 mAh. This will be enough to charge phones fully for three times.
The Delivery Club’s representatives noticed that to charge the phones 100% in moderate climate of Russia the deliverymen need to spend 2-3 hours in the out-of-doors.
Ivan Zadokhin, the Logistics Director in Delivery Club, explained that deliverymen always must be in touch but their phones are discharging fast because they should have their GPS determination always on. “The deliverymen usually have several accumulators but it could be failed in any time so the deliverymen have to charge their phones at the cafes. That’s why our company decided to try an unusual solution of this problem – solar modules”, said Zadokhin. He also added that after the solar-powered backpacks summer testing the Delivery Club will study the staff’s reviews and make a decision about the realization of this idea.
