Remain connected during load shedding

08 Dec 2014

Load shedding has plunged sections of South Africa into a dark stillness recently.

Load shedding has plunged sections of South Africa into a dark stillness recently.

While dinners remained half cooked, moans stirred at the threat of football games being missed, students’ stress levels soared and weekend work remained on the “to do” list, Sustainable.co.za put together the following solutions to remain connected the next time power goes down:

Solar cell phone charger

While our routers may go down on the house electricity source, the mobile networks don’t go down. This means accessing the internet via your mobile directly or from your laptop will allow you to keep working online.

The solar smartphone charger can charge six phones per day, is heat resistant, UV stable, shock drop safe and waterproof. Charge it up, plug your mobile in (with your official charger) and keep connected.

Solar laptop charger

When the power goes down it’s a catch 22 - it seems the perfect time to knuckle down and get some work done, yet it’s not always easy to do if your laptop is dead.

The solar laptop charger, however, is able to recharge laptops and carry them in its 17” case. Charge it in the sun for 1 hour and get 70 minutes of laptop time.

Study lamp

This study lamp combines a bright light and a cell phone charger. You can use the lantern while studying so that you can clearly see your notes, and charge your phone at the same time.

Tablet charger

Everyone loves the convenience of a tablet, from reading off book apps, using maps while in the car, or simply surfing the internet.

The tablet charger is the perfect power down tool. Keep your tablets charged with the solar tablet charger, sit back, relax and enjoy surfing the internet while the power’s out.

Security gate solar system

When load shedding initially started, safety and security were on the minds of everyone. With alarm systems down and security gates left open, many residents were left feeling exposed.

Ensure your home’s safety by switching your gate backup battery with a solar power system battery to ensure your gates keep working. This system is available for home alarm systems as well.
