Which power equipment is the best in Ireland?
Sport equipment such as tennis racquets, volleyball nets, hockey nets, golf balls and even electric guitars are widely available in the country.
However, outdoor power gear is a niche market that only a small number of people actually use.
In an attempt to expand the range of power equipment available in Ireland, a small team of researchers have been working on developing a portable power unit that would power up any device.
The researchers have identified five basic power supply types that could be used in any home, said Paul Smith, the project leader for the project, at the University of Dublin.
The research is being conducted by the European Centre for Energy Storage and Renewable Energy (ECESRE) in Dublin.
In the study, the team has created a prototype of a battery that can power a standard electric car.
The battery consists of a lithium-ion battery pack and a lithium polymer electrolyte, a solid-state battery.
In an interview with The Irish News, Mr Smith said that the power unit was designed to be portable and would be used to power a range of devices, including a wall outlet, a coffee machine, a washing machine and a water heater.
The power unit is capable of delivering up to 200 watts of power to a device, he said.
The prototype was built by Dr Stephen O’Sullivan, a researcher at the Centre for Research in Applied Mathematics and the Centre of Excellence for Materials Research, at UCD.
He said that this power unit could be adapted for use in a number of other devices, such as a power supply to an electric vehicle, or a mobile phone charger.
In a report for the ECEESRE website, the research team said the prototype had a range up to 2.8 metres and could deliver up to 8 kilowatts of power.
The team has also identified five power supplies that would be ideal for power equipment such a lighting or air conditioning system, Mr O’ Sullivan said.
However the battery is still in the prototype stage, and it will need further refinement.
In terms of the power supply, it’s a standard lithium-polymer electrolyte.
This electrolyte is used to make most of the energy storage materials in the world.
The electrolyte can be used as an electrolyte to make any of the electrolyte types, he added.
The ECEESHRE team said that, when the battery was first developed, it was considered to be a novel concept, but that it has since been proven.
This battery was designed with the understanding that it would be suitable for applications in different locations, including the homes of some of the researchers.
This would mean that it could be scaled up to meet demand in smaller homes and homes with limited energy supplies, he explained.
The device could also be used for energy storage in the homes, he suggested.
Mr Smith said he was impressed by the research.
He believes the energy supply concept is very relevant for people, especially young people.
He told The Irish Guardian:The energy supply is something that can be built for small areas and for a particular household and there is a need for this in Ireland.
The energy storage is something where we have the capacity to store a significant amount of energy, he went on.
The project has been funded by the EESRE and ECHO.
