Portable Solar Lights  made by our partner solargasy (from Malgasy)

Most solar products on the market today targeting energy poor consumers fall in the portable solar light or pico solar system categories.    Portable solar lights include a small fluorescent or LED light with a rechargeable battery in a case that is easy to carry for outdoor lighting needs, and they are often designed to both stand on a table as a task light and hang from the ceiling or a wall for room lighting. Some include a small built-in solar panel, others are designed to be plugged into a roof-mounted solar panel of less than 3 Watt-peak16 (Wp) size for charging and then detached for use, and are often sized to provide 4–6 hours of lighting each day.

Pico Solar Systems


Solar pico systems offer the ability to simultaneously light 2–6 rooms in a home or business. They often include the ability to charge multiple mobile phones at the same time and can also power small DC appliances, such as a radio or an efficient fan. These products come standard with an external solar panel of 4Wp–25Wp in size, and they often use lithium-based battery technologies. A central battery pack with standard DC outlets allows users to customize the use of a pico system to fit their needs, shifting between lighting, mobile charging, and running other appliances as required in ways that are not possible with an individual solar lantern.

Large Solar Home Systems


Larger solar home systems can be thought of as products with a solar panel above 30 Wp in size and often use deep-cycle, lead-based batteries that are more dependable and less expensive (cost-per-watt) than lithium-based alternatives used in solar lanterns and pico systems. These products offer energy poor consumers the ability to use up to 10 lights (LED or compact fluorescent) simultaneously and to use a wide range of 12V DC appliances, such as powering televisions and direct-to-home satellite systems, ceiling and pedestal fans, refrigerators, computers, and many microenterprise energy needs.
