PiSAT Solar’s K-Light, an energy alternative and an entrepreneurial choice
The PiSAT Solar’s K-Light is a very useful product especially while going on a hike or if you take a trip to someplace that is low on electricity. The unit, in 10 hours of daylight charging can give up to 20 hours worth of battery power for use in the low-power 8 LED mode or 10 hours of life if used in 16 LED mode. It’s also switchable between flashlight and lantern modes making it a good option for camping trips. K-Light is designed for up to 10 years of full daily use in such a scenario and PiSAT is working on an adapter to let the lantern’s battery also charge a cellphone.
The cost is $50. The company is also looking forward to work with the Koinonia Foundation to provide start-up grants of K-Lights to groups of African women to create local businesses selling the lights.
