Low-power Linux goes off-grid

Filed under

Hardware

Living in Africa we have abundant sun, a power source we rarely consider when we buy yet another gadget. Along comes the Aleutia E1, an ultra low power computer setup that can be run from a roll up solar panel or car battery and runs Puppy Linux.

The Aleutia E1 stands just 3.5cm high and 11.5cm long and consumes a mind-shifting 8W at peak performance. Okay, 8W is for the CPU and SDRAM running at full power. Add an external drive or CD rewriter and the power consumption jumps to a, still, impressive 11W.

The E1 is not really for your power user with specs designed more to cut power usage than to impress with speed.
