The ToughStuff Full Energy Kit includes solar powered energy solutions to charge an LED lamp, mobile phones and power a radio.
The ToughStuff Solar Panel charges the majority of simple mobile phones using the range of ToughStuff Mobile Connectors, eliminating the cost of charging and the time taken to reach the nearest charging station. The ToughStuff Battery Pack can be also be charged from the Solar Panel and can then be used to charge mobile phones at night, or when there is no sun. (The ToughStuff Mobile phone Connector Range includes: Nokia 2mm, Nokia 3.5mm, LG, Samsung, Motorola, Mini USB 5 pin, Mini USB 8 pin and Micro USB chargers.)
The ToughStuff Solar Panel can be used to play a traditional radio using ToughStuff's Active and Passive Radio Connectors, eliminating the need for costly batteries. ToughStuff's Radio Connectors replace D-cell batteries. At night, the radio can be powered by ToughStuff's Battery Pack which can be charged during the day using the Solar Panel. (Usage: Depending on the amount of Batteries required by the radio between 1 and 3 Passive Radio Connectors should be used in addition to 1 active connector. The setting on the Active Connector should be changed to reflect how many connectors are being used (1, 2, 3 or 4).)
The ToughStuff Solar Panel charges the LED lamp which can then be hung as a light bulb or used as a torch eliminating the need for hazardous kerosene lamps and candles. The LED lamp has multiple settings and lasts between 5 and 40 hours on a single charge, depending on the setting used.
