  • Publication number: 20080219000
    Abstract: A lampshade with at least one LED has a circuit card, at least one LED and a reflector. The at least one LED is attached to the circuit card. The reflector is mounted around the circuit card and has at least one recess corresponding to the LED. Each recess has a reflecting sidewall to reflect light emitting from the LED. When the LED is lighting, the light is reflected via the reflecting sidewall to reflect light of the LEDs to all directions. Therefore, the brightness in all directions of the lampshade is enhanced.

  • Publication number: 20080185988
    Abstract: A solar garden light device has at least one lamp, a rechargeable device and a solar array. Each one of the at least one lamp has a casing, a through hole and a light assembly. The casing has a top end. The through hole is defined in the casing adjacent to the top end. The light assembly is mounted in the casing and lights. The rechargeable device has a control circuit and a rechargeable battery. The rechargeable battery is connected electrically to the control circuit and the light assembly. The solar array is connected electrically to the control circuit, converts sunlight to direct current (DC) electricity and recharges the rechargeable battery. Therefore, the solar array can absorb solar energy and transfer solar energy to electric energy to store electricity in the rechargeable battery. Then the rechargeable battery supplies power to the light.

  • Publication number: 20080169784
    Abstract: A solar power system uses a solar panel to convert light energy to electricity for charging a battery through a photo sensor. The photo sensor uses a switching unit to control whether the battery can be charged or discharged. The battery further connects to a sensing and protecting circuit and an over-discharge protecting circuit. The sensing and protecting circuit protects the battery from being over-charged. The over-discharge protecting circuit stops the discharging of the battery when the output voltage of the battery is lower than a low threshold.

  • Publication number: 20070186435
    Abstract: A hairdryer bellows has two connectors. One connector is mounted pivotally on and holds the other, and each connector has a spherical chamber and a sleeve. Each spherical has a proximal end, a distal end, an inner opening and an outer opening. The inner openings are formed respectively at the proximal ends and communicate with the other spherical chamber. The outer openings are formed respectively at the distal ends. The sleeves are formed respectively around the outer openings, and one sleeve is mounted selectively on a hairdryer. Therefore, the connectors can rotate relative to each other so the sleeve can be pointed in any desired angle.

  • Patent number: 6412711
    Abstract: An adjustable shower head has a nozzle assembly and a controlling device fitted in a hollow body portion. A knob operably fitted in the base is partially extended out of the base and the body portion. A driving gear carried by the knob is mated with a driven gear integrally formed around the rotary sleeve. The knob can be turned easily as the rotary sleeve is driven by the driving gear to turn around the rear end portion of the base, and the multiple holes and entrances of the rotary sleeve sequentially communicate with the plurality of passages. Therefore water is delivered from the body portion to the nozzle plate via the chambers and passages to give different spray types of shower water.
