Our Testing Plan

Testing Priorities - Updated

What product features will be most helpful to get feedback on?

Flexibility
  • Applications
    • Magnetic attachability
    • Magnetic
  • Weight
    • Recognizing whether or not the product should be lightweight and portable
Energy Efficiency
  • Expectation of the consumer about how fast the chosen device should be charged

Testing Strategy - Updated

What is the best way for us to get useful feedback for each of these features? What does useful feedback look like?

General procedure (updated)
  • Incorporate feedback from first session
  • Show updated prototypes, including real sizes
  • Not spending too much time explaining the product, but ask specific questions (from the consumer's perspective using the testing protocol)
Flexibility
  • Application
    • Testers would mention precisely which application they would be interested in charging (i.e. iPhone, Laptop, Ipad)
    • Is the magnetic feature trustworthy enough for you?
  • Weight
    • The numerical range of values (g, kg)
Energy Efficiency
  • Time expected to charge a specific product and the aimed percentage for

Testing Priorities - Old

What product features will be most helpful to get feedback on?

Aesthetics
  • Understanding the different designs and colors that our consumers will be most interested in for the PV film
Flexibility
  • Applications
    • Designing the solar panels to work with the needed applications (i.e. whether to charge phones, laptops, …)
  • Size
    • Identify restrictions in solar module shapes with respect to the applications (i.e. too big for a laptop)
  • Weight
    • Recognizing whether or not the product should be lightweight and portable
Energy Efficiency
  • Expectation of the consumer about how fast the chosen device should be charged
Price Point
  • Figure out upper price threshold for customers

What is the best way for us to get useful feedback for each of these features? What does a useful feedback look like?

Aesthetics
  • Ideally: Consumers would tell us whether or not the aesthetics are important to them, and which colors and set design they’re interested in purchasing
  • Alternatively: Knowing whether consumers would appreciate different colours or would prefer the traditional PV look
Flexibility
  • Application
    • Ideally: Testers would mention precisely which application they would be interested in charging "solarly" (i.e. iPhone, and not just “electronic device”)
    • Alternatively: Testers give out general answers (home applications, electronic device, ...)
  • Size
    • Ideally: Numerical range of values (about height, width, thickness)
    • Alternatively: Comparable product sizes (“as large as my bag” or “as high as a water bottle”, or …)
  • Weight
    • Ideally: Numerical range of values (g, kg)
    • Alternatively: Comparable product weights
Energy Efficiency
  • Ideally: Numerical range of power needed for charging (i.e. specify number of watts)
  • Alternatively: Specifying how much and how long consumers are expecting the PV to charge (i.e. charge 50% in 1 hr)
Price Point
  • Ideally: Numerical range of values (in $)
  • Alternatively: Comparable product prices (“as expensive as a power bank”, or …)
