Today you can find any gadget or vehicle you want that is solar-powered. This is a good thing because we should use more solar power. We even have bicycles that use solar power to recharge their batteries. Some people still don’t understand why you should ride an electric bicycle. They are designed to run on the energy the rider provides, so the electric motor is unneeded. But, technology should advance always, and this is clean technology, so it is more than useful. Anyway, people who like water sports and water vehicles were almost forgotten in the world of solar power. Until now.
The new type of kayak, called E-Kayak is finally here. It was presented at the boat show in Düsseldorf and it was a very popular accomplishment. It should be a kayak for the 21st century. The driver can use it like a regular kayak, or he can use an electric motor. It is integrated into the floor and it is solar-powered. The owner also gets gas screw, digital control unit and lead-acid battery. The radius of this kayak is the best side of it. If the driver maintains the speed of 4km/h, E-Kayak will have a radius of 52 kilometers. But, if a driver accelerates too often, this radius can be reduced to 15 kilometers. Time needed to recharge is 8 hours, so don’t expect to use electric motor the whole day.
Because this is a hi-tech kayak, it offers a possibility to recharge your smartphone or GPS and other gadgets. It looks fantastic and very modern. This will be very desirable ‘’toy’’ among all people who like water sports and for those who just like green gadgets.
