Solar home energy products manufacturer Greenlight Planet Inc. has launched a new line of solar lanterns: the Sun King Pro 400, Sun King Pro 300 and Sun King Pico Plus. The three new devices are more powerful versions of the company’s existing solar lamps, boasting significant increases in brightness and phone-charging capacity at a lower cost.
The technical improvements include higher capacity batteries and USB phone charging ports, along with significantly larger 5.5 W solar panels. New, higher efficiency LEDs can be found in all three models.
The specifications of each new model are as follows:
- Sun King Pro 400: Shines at 40x the brightness of kerosene (400 lumens) for five hours, with 100 hours at its lowest brightness setting after a single day of charging. The product is likely to be priced at Rs 2,699.
- Sun King Pro 300: Shines at 30x the brightness of kerosene (300 lumens) for 6.5 hours, with 100 hours at its lowest brightness setting after a single day of charge. The product is likely to be priced at Rs 2,299.
