Organic solar cells are not only flexible, but they are also especially cost effective to produce. However, solar cell life is still very limited. That is why at this time they are primarily integrated into clothing such as jackets, for example, to charge smartphones and other small devices. It is assumed that the life of the clothing is shorter than that of the solar cells.
