Wysips® Crystal offers mobile telephone and tablet makers several competitive marketing advantages.
With this technology, our clients can convince their consumers with unique selling points about security and reliability.
Use Less Electricity
The battery recharges with solar power, greatly reducing electricity bills
For devices that use little energy, the solar cells completely recharge the battery, enabling total energy independence and guaranteeing use even when far from the grid. For smartphones and devices that need a lot of energy, the solar cells guarantee enough power to use certain features (emergency calls, listening to music, etc)
The device constantly recharges: never run out of battery again
Guaranteed power for emergency calls 24/7
Data transfer, for example for remote payment, will never be interrupted again because of a dead battery, thanks to constant recharging
Data transmitted by light waves (LiFi)
With Wysips® Crystal, Sunpartner Technologies makes mobile devices more efficient and easier to use.
Combining optical and photovoltaic technologies, this revolutionary component produces electricity from a natural or artificial light source. It is ultrathin and transparent, so it can easily be incorporated into screens.
Wysips® Crystal optimizes any kind of mobile device, from standard mobile phones and smartphones to tablets and e-readers. It works with all kinds of screen technology, including MEMMS, bistable, LCD, OLED, and optical screens.
Our Wysips® Crystal innovation was awarded CTIA’s prestigious E-Tech Award in 2011. Since then, performance and yield have continued to increase and Wysips® Crystal is now LiFi compatible.
Advantages of a Wysips Crystal® Mobile Phone
Self-SufficientIf the battery is dead, the user can simply hold the screen up to a light source to recharge the phone. Full self-sufficiency is possible for less energy-consuming models such as e-readers and low cost mobile phones, making chargers a thing of the past.
ReliableThe energy needed for the network search function on smartphones is continually recharged. By maintaining a permanent battery reserve, Wysips® Crystal guarantees the reliable use of the phone for remote payment and emergency calls.
Design NeutralThe Wysips® Crystal component is invisible and therefore totally adaptable to the design of the device. Thanks to its outstanding transparency of up to 90%, the viewing angle of the screen is entirely preserved.
SustainableBy 2030, energy consumption of mobile devices will account for 10% of global electricity needs, according to the IEA (International Energy Agency). With its combined optical and photovoltaic technologies, Wysips Crystal® generates renewable electricity from both solar and artificial lighting. The batteries in mobile devices can be smaller, helping reduce the industry’s environmental impact.
Wysips® Crystal Technology
Wysips® Crystal technology is integrated during the manufacturing process, either beneath or on top of the touchscreen. The transparent photovoltaic component is connected to an electronic chip that converts and manages the energy produced. This energy is then used to recharge the batteries of the mobile device. The Wysips® Connect version is LiFi compatible, enabling screens and mobile devices to receive and transmit data over light waves (VLC-Visible Light Communication). Find out more

Projects Under Way
Wysips® Crystal quickly met with commercial success and has acquired additional innovative features through our partnerships with TCL Communication, 3M, and Oledcomm. Sunpartner Technologies has also recently invested in a plant to produce Wysips® Crystal components in Rousset, France, near its headquarters in Aix-en-Provence. For the time being, our other partnership agreements with global leaders must remain confidential. Find out more
