Sunshine solar lamp


The Sunshine range is made up of three models intended to cover all potential off-grid lighting needs: a small mobile light source (Little Sunshine), a powerful and versatile device (Family Sunshine) and an integrated home lighting kit (Home Sunshine).

 

Little Sunshine

This lamp is intended to provide additional lighting for small tasks (reading, sewing). It delivers a maximum of 30 lumens for 6 hours/day when fully charged. All components are integrated into the lamp, which makes it very mobile.

Family Sunshine

This lamp is intended for personal and room lighting, as well as mobile phone charging. It provides up to 300 lumens for a maximum of 3 hours/day. During the day, the 3Wp solar panel charges the built-in battery, and a mobile phone can be charged from the USB port at the bottom of the lamp.

Home Sunshine

This solar kit can light up to 3 rooms, and provides energy for a radio, several phone recharges and emergency lighting (through a rechargeable torch). It provides up to 400 lumens, for a maximum of 7 hours/day. A 10Wp solar panel charges the central battery during the day, which powers the lamps and to which other components can be plugged in and recharged (phone, radio, torch).

The Total Ecosolutions Advantage

Sunshine solar lamps avoid the use of kerosene lights, which are the main off-grid lighting solutions currently used by the populations targeted by solar lights, and which they are replacing in low-income homes[1].
