Makers are raising product value further with LED torch, solar panel, compass, thermometer, speaker or card reader.
- Design: Portability is a major consideration. Most companies develop pocket-sized units. Classic white or black with a piano paint or baking finish is common.
- Add-ons: LED torch is the most popular value-added feature, although more makers are integrating a compass, thermometer or solar panel. Some enhanced models also have a built-in speaker system or card reader.
- Battery cell: Li-polymer is widely used in the 10,000mAh and below category for its slim size, good reliability and design flexibility. For large-capacity models targeted at smartphones and other similar devices, Li-ion cells are adopted. Suppliers source the cells locally, although some procure them from Sanyo, Panasonic and Samsung.
