Plug n Go Solar - Sundaya j-Power
Most solar power systems require a professional and permanent installation to ensure safety, functionality and compliance with Australian standards. Some systems may even require local council approval.
There are, however, many situations where small amounts of power are desirable, but installation of a power system (on or off-grid) is not feasible.
Where to use j-Power
- Boats (even your tinnie)
- Camping trips
- Temporary jobsites
- CSG Blockade
- Car Ports
- Cubby / tree houses
Decentralised Solar Power
Rainbow Power Company now sells instant solar - 'Plug n Go' portable solar kits: j-Power.
j-Power is a new approach to off-grid solar systems. Instead of a centralised battery bank, j-Power houses small and potent lithium batteries in each device, or utilises the fact that many of today’s gadgets are supplied with a battery inbuilt.
If you can stick a plug into a socket you can install a j-Power solar kit. The system can be operational within seconds and without any experience in electronics. One or more pre-wired solar panels plug into distribution hubs. Then, simply plug in a light with integrated battery (like our T-Lite). The pocket battery features a USB socket and can charge a mobile phone, GPS, or other small devices.
What can be charged/powered with j-Power
- LED lights and torches
- Mobile Phones
- Smart Phones
- MP3 Player
- Bluetooth devices
- Anything that is recharged via USB*
j-Power solar kits are modular and expandable. Start small and go big later. Scale up power generation to 130 Watts – enough to power 33 bright LED lamps. Or go big, and when you go hiking, only take what you need with you. Here's a short animation to see what you can do.
Unlike traditional solar systems, j-Power solar systems are not linear which means you can remove some components without severing power supply. In fact, j-Power is designed to be taken apart.
* Max charge current 1000mA if via solar panel directly. Higher currents can be achieved via external pocket battery.
