Citizen invented the first light-powered analog quartz watch in 1976. The watch runs using only light as a power source which is called as Eco Drive. Citizen watch eco drive can generate power from some light source, like natural, artificial, and dim light. The technology will keep watches running even the batteries are replacing.
Citizen Watch Eco Drive
Citizen watch eco drive use light as source of power, like artificial or natural. It means the watch have no actual battery. The technology have an energy cell and a solar conversion panel that work together to covert light or electricity.
According to the experimental data showed that the secondary battery and solar cell will last for more than 10 years. The secondary battery retains 80% of a power storage capacity after 20 years. That’s how the eco drive technology works to run the watches.
That’s all about Citizen watch eco drive technology you should know. The watches are perfect for you who love technology.
