Provides safe lighting and reliable mobile charging for under $20
NAIROBI, Kenya - Thursday, September 29th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Greenlight Planet today announced the Sun King Charge, its most affordable rechargeable lamp and solar panel that offers both lighting and mobile charging to off-grid consumers.
With the Sun King Charge, consumers can use the lamp and solar panel independently of each other for hours or days at a time. This enables consumers to light their homes or workplace and charge their USB devices simultaneously during the day, offering them more efficiency in their everyday tasks.
“In many off-grid communities, families either have to pay to charge their mobile devices or purchase low-quality solar devices which may not be safe for mobile phones,” said Patrick Walsh, CEO of Greenlight Planet. “We developed the Sun King Charge to offer a safe, reliable and high-quality solar lamp and charging device, at a price point within the rural consumer’s reach.”
Uniquely, the Sun King Charge not only features cost-saving mobile charging direct from the solar panel – consumers can also charge the lamp using a mobile charger wherever mains electricity is available.
The Sun King Charge’s bright 50 lumen white LED lamp yields up to 72 hours of light from a single sunny day, with a long lasting Lithium Ferro-Phosphate battery. It comes complete with Greenlight Planet’s industry-leading two-year warranty.
