Very thin solar panels are available these days, some are even flexible and suitable for adhesive application so installing the panel is not a great problem. However you still have the problem of electrical connection. You would need to connect to the equipment and regulate the voltage so that you don't overcharge the battey (if present like a laptop) and/or apply excess voltage to the equipment. Definitely something where you need a decent working knowledge of electronics if you can't afford to wreck the piece of equipment.

An example of electronic retailing is a retail store allowing customers to shop online. The only way this can happen is through the use of electronic devices and the Internet. Paying for the merchandise through the use of credit cards is also a type of electronic retailing if that is the only source of payment accepted.

electronic and communication branch is the branch of engineering which deals with semiconductor component and devices . and communication means the data between two person interchange you can see mobile phone internet and T.V and satellite these are example of electronic communication.

Yes. For example, lots of calculators have small solar cells, allowing them to use light energy.

Electronic devices use all sorts of complicated electronic circuits - amplifier circuits for example, and switching circuits. The details, however, are a bit complicated for a short answer.

what exactly is the difference between electrical devices and electronic devices?The answer lies in how devices manipulate electricity to do their work. Electrical devices take the energy of electric current and transform it in simple ways into some other form of energy - most likely light, heat, or motion. The heating elements in a toaster turn electrical energy into heat so you can burn your toast. And the motor in your vacuum cleaner turns electrical energy into motion that drives a pump that sucks the burnt toast crumbs out of your carpet.In contrast, electronic devices do much more. Instead of just converting electrical energy into heat, light, or motion, electronic devices are designed to manipulate the electrical current itself to coax it into doing interesting and useful things.That very first electronic device invented in 1883 by Thomas Edison manipulated the electric current passing through a light bulb in a way that let Edison create a device that could monitor the voltage being provided to an electrical circuit and automatically increase or decrease the voltage if it became too low or too high.One of the most common things that electronic devices do is manipulate electric current in a way that adds meaningful information to the current. For example, audio electronic devices add sound information to an electric current so that you can listen to music or talk on a cellphone. And video devices add images to an electric current so you can watch great movies until you know every line by heart.Keep in mind that the distinction between electric and electronic devices is a bit blurry. What used to be simple electrical devices now often include some electronic components in them. For example, your toaster may contain an electronic thermostat that attempts to keep the heat at just the right temperature to make perfect toast.And even the most complicated electronic devices have simple electrical components in them. For example, although your TV set's remote control is a pretty complicated little electronic device, it contains batteries, which are simple electrical devices.RESOURCE:http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/what-is-the-difference-between-electronic-and-elec.html, Doug Lowe.

NO.Electronic device - a device that uses electricityComputer - a programmable electronic device designed to carry out a sequence of instructions (may not be user-programmable)A light is a device that uses electricity, but certainly isn't a computer. Thus not all electronic devices are computers.Electric digital alarm clocks are electronic devices -- they are programmable in the sense that they can be set by the user to ring at a given time, but there is no sequencing, and thus not a computer.A pocket calculator is a simple example of an electronic device that is also a rudimentary computer.

Actually both are the same purpose.UPS is used for electronic devices backup.For example like computer.Inverter is used for large loads.like house.

Electronic component distributors can be found in nearly all electrical devices. Some items contain more than one, for example cars. They process the electrical signals in mobile phones and notebooks.

The term "Computer hardware" refers to the physical, tangible parts of the computer. The alternative, software exists only as a stream of data and code.If you can touch it, it is hardware. Ex: monitor, keyboard, mouse and even the hard disk.the computer hardware is the physical part of the computer system, it includes electronic devices, which have the potential for performing the task of solving a problem. The computer hardware is composed of three main components namely:Central Processing Units (CPU)Memory units ( Storage devices)Inpit/Output devicesIn addition computer hardware is very important parts because it handle the interconnection of each devices. it a set of different computer parts in such as motherboard, hardisk drive and cable wire connection. and also it is a main function of the computer application or software and technically requirements needs. computer hardware is every part of a computer you could touch if the computer was disassembled. examples: hard drive disk, memory, mouse, speakers, printer, etc... the "parts" you can't touch are SOFTWARE like for example: internet explorer, windows OS, any computer game or things you install on the computer.

Computer, by definition, is a device capable of storing, retrieving and processing data. Therefore, it encompass beyond electronic devices. Take for example: our brain is a super massive computer. However, if you are refering to electronic devices, the first computer was owned and designed by Dr Tommy Flowers. The computer was called "Colossus".
