Greenlight Planet’s Sun King™ offers Pro Solar Lantern plus Mobile Charger units, which are solar-powered light and mobile phone chargers. The company currently offers two versions of this technology.
Their most portable unit includes a 5.5 volt USB charging port and an LED light that emits 8X the brightness of a typical kerosene lamp. Greenlight Planet’s Sun King™ Pro 200 defines the industry’s gold standard in affordable solar-powered lanterns with dual mobile-phone charging capability. Sun King™ Pro 200 features long lasting (three years of daily performance) NMC batteries for phone charging capacity, and a leading level of brightness, in the industry. Measured at 200 lumens, Sun King™ Pro 200 provides an ample amount of light when in the dark. The Sun King™ Pro 200, with 72 hours of light runtime, is therefore ideal to meet the lighting and charging needs of under electrified households.
Specifications vary by product version, see website for latest details.
In low-resource rural settings, villagers often walk 3 kilometers or more just to charge their mobile phone, costing them money and productivity due to lost working hours. The Sun King Mobile was developed to allow affordable and sustainable lighting and mobile charging in rural homes.
