Polaris radio/light

When disasters strike, people need food, water, shelter and medical care. They also need information. In emergencies, people need to know what to do and where to go to get help. They need contact with the outside world. They need to connect with families and friends. The small, mobile, tough little Polaris provides all this – a radio that will deliver essential, and in some cases, life-saving – information, combined with a flashlight and a cell phone charger. And it needs only the sun or winding by hand to power itself.

Since 2010, our Polaris has been used in responding to natural disasters in Pakistan and the Philippines, and in Liberia and Sierra Leone in response to the Ebola crisis.

The Polaris radio is …

A radio

The Polaris is an AM/FM radio.

Energy independent

A solar panel charges and plays the Polaris in sunlight, and a hand crank means that you’re never let down as high quality rechargeable batteries store the energy.

Reliable and dependable

Apart from its solar panel and hand crank, the Polaris can also be powered through a USB cable, ensuring access to information for extended periods, day and night.

Rugged and tough

With its rubberized outside, recessed control knobs and superior material and design, the Polaris is impact resistant, water resistant and robust.

Also a flashlight

The integrated LED flashlight means people can walk and see in the dark.

And a cell phone charger

The cell charging capability gives people the ability to contact loved ones in an emergency, either by making a call or sending an sms.

Customised for you

The Polaris comes in eight colours, and can be customised with your company logo.
