The new Gen 2.5 PowaPack™ Village Kit 15W is a village lighting kit where at 172 lumens each, the 3W SMD LED tube lights are more efficient than fluorescent lamps and will supply hours of bright light. One lamp of this kit is 20 times brighter than one kerosene lamp and provides light for up to 62 hours and also charges your mobile phone. This product is also designed and developed to meet the UN Clean Development standards. Carbon revenue will contribute to the affordability and improved quality and performance of Barefoot Power products. Barefoot Power is the winner of the 2010 World Bank Group Lighting Africa Award for best room lighting, top performance and best value categories for their PowaPack and Firefly range of solar lighting products.
The new Gen 2.5 PowaPack™ Village Kit 15W is designed to give the user many hours of light per night. The system uses an innovative Plug&Play system only available in Barefoot products. This PowaPack is larger than the Generation 2.0 15W kit with four 3W SMD LED tube lights and a total of 7 LED lighting points.
LEDs enable the development of lighting products suitable for use in developing countries at very low cost. Most poor households are burning between US$0.50 – US$2.00 each week on kerosene. This cash expenditure can be redirected towards much cleaner and more efficient LED lighting. Our careful pro-poor design has resulted in LED products that will payback within 6 months (some within 2 months!)
