According to scientists, 200 cells can produce 2.5 V to 10 V up to 80 MW of power and 2000 solar cells smartphone, i pod or fit bit. A solar cloth is stitched with industrial techniques and in bright sunlight, it could give up to 1 W of electricity.

Can you wash them?

According to a press release, you can wash these solar clothes and it is tested. In the test, the device was soaked in water for 2 hours and the efficiency only decreased by 5.4 %. If you wash it 20 times, you still have 80 % of the original efficiency.
