Greenlight Planet’s Sun King Solo™ redefines affordability and longevity for the world's off-grid population.
Key features include:
Re-designed from the ground up to replace kerosene lanterns in off-grid homes, the Sun King Solo™ offers bright "Turbo" light mode 5 times brighter than the kerosene lanterns, or 24 hours of low-power light after a one-day solar charge.
Light runtime after one sunny day of solar charging:
1. Bright Home Lighting
2. Breakthrough Longevity
Revolutionary Batteries. Unlike lamps, using cheaper, short-lifetime lead-acid, Ni-Cd, or Ni-MH batteries, Sun King Solo™ LiFePO4 (LFP) battery maintains over 80% of its original capacity after five years (over 2000 cycles). LFP batteries also have a lower self-discharge rate than other battery chemistries, meaning distributors and retailers don't have to worry about batteries draining while sitting on the shelf before sale.
Unbeatable Solar Panel Durability. Unlike other products in its price range, Sun King Solo™ uses a detachable solar panel with a repairable junction box, and a five-meter cable. The 700 mW, aluminium-framed, industrial-grade glass protected solar panel is more durable than cheap alternatives laminated in PET or epoxy.
LEDs: Dual power LEDs, 130 lumens per watt
Battery: Lithium Ferro-Phosphate (LFP) 3.2V, 1000 mAh
Solar Panel: 700 mW, 4.7 V industrial-grade glass/aluminum framed amorphouse thin film panel
Light Beam: 360-degree ambient wide-angle spread (low & turbo modes) and 40-degree (spot mode)
Enclosure: Polycarbonate and ABS. IP54 rated, water-sealed enclousure
LCD screen: Microprocessor-controlled system: intelligent battery management switches lamp to low-power mode when the battery runs low, yielding five extra hours of usable light before turning off. Charging indicator blinks 1-5 times to indicate solar charging strength, preventing poor placement of solar panel by telling the user how rapidly or slowly the Sun King Solo™ is charging.
