The SolarPal provides an extra charging capability for our Lifeplayer and Prime radio, and can be purchased with these products as an optional extra. In addition, it is able to charge cell phones.
The growth of cell phone usage in Africa is unprecedented, leapfrogging traditional land line infrastructure, and connecting people with each other and offering banking, insurance and information services. As powerful as this technology is, it relies on access to power.
Around 80% of sub-Saharan Africa has limited or no access to an electricity grid. The SolarPal offers an affordable solar charging solution, giving individual users or families and entrepreneurs dependable and uninterrupted access to mobile services and lighting.
