Mobility is what our lives are all about these days. We use flexible workspaces, travel for fun, pleasure and work and unfortunately we’re a lot on the run, so much to do. How inconvenient is it when your iPhone or iPad dies on you again, right in the middle of that conversation you wanted to finish today.

 

WAKAWAKA POWER+ IS HERE !

You need back-up power if you don’t want to be slowed down by your device. Solar chargers are becoming increasingly popular, but most are still bulky and really many of them (if you tried any) don’t work that well, especially in the winter or on overcast days.

Wakawaka Power + is capable of charging any type of Smartphone: iPhone, Blackberry, Samsung ... and tablets with a foolproof power and reliability !

WakaWaka Power + is a pocket size mini power station with super efficient solar cells and a power management system which ensures efficiencies which are up to 200% better than any other product in the market. Apart from charging your smart phone, WakaWaka Power + is also a light source which can provide you with more than 40 hours of excellent reading light (on a single day solar charge!).

DON'T UNDERSTIMATE IT'S POWER

Place WakaWaka Power in direct sunlight for a whole day and you will notice that the battery will be completely full, even if you live in New York or Seattle (where the intensity of the sun is far less than in Texas). The capacity of the battery is large enough to fully power most mobile phone from completely depleted. On top of this, you will have 10 or more hours of excellent reading light as well. If you don’t charge your phone or tablet, as said before, you can have more than 40 hours of light.

We calculated that a fully charged Wakawaka will give you at least 2 hours extra surf & work time on your iPad (on full brightness). Enough to finish that movie, send emails on the train, on the bus or plane.

 

LED INDICATORS

1 LED to indicate that your Wakawaka is recharging in the sun

4 LEDs to show you the remaining battery of your Wakawaka

The story of Wakawaka began in 2010, with founders Maurits Groen and Camille Van Gestel. They discovered that there was a real need for sustainable off-grid lighting when they were in South Africa for a contest to illuminate the 2010 World Cup events using LED lighting. After winning, they decided that something had to be done about the lack of safe and affordable lighting among families living at the "base of the pyramid". Two years later, Wakawaka light went into production. Inspired by an idea of Frans Biegstraaten & Rik Wuts of the high-tech solar energy company Intivation, the founders decided that light needed to be compact, low cost and possess different ways of positioning. Together and with the support of carbon finance experts Do-Inc, they set out to pave the way for an ambitious project: enlighten all those who still lived in darkness.
 
  

This sturdy, highly efficient, durable and solar powered LED lamp is affordable for those who live with 2 dollars a day. In January 2012, we used participatory financing to finance production during a very successful campaign. Six months later, the most efficient solar LED lamp in the world hit the market with a big BOOM.
 
  

The small lamp on mission has achieved great success around the world and has attracted the attention of companies and NGOs. It has rapidly reached individuals in all African countries. Online assessments could not have been more positive and independent research showed that the Wakawaka Light was twice as efficient as any other solar lamp on the market.
 
  

In 2013 Wakawaka launched a new model - Wakawaka Power - that combines the original lamp with the ability to charge phones and other portable devices, while providing hours of light. Participatory financing of the world's most compact solar charger was reached for the second time by backers at crowdfunding sites around the world. This "Buy One, Give One" campaign raised over $ 700,000 and provided 12,000 LED lamps to Haitian families without electricity.
 
 

Before Wakawaka Power was launched in the spring of 2013, we launched a similar donation campaign for Syrian refugees struck by the conflict. With needs expanding exponentially as the crisis worsened, a new wave of WakaWaka was sent to Syria in partnership with the International Rescue Committee and Stichting Vluchteling.

1. How long does the battery last? 

The battery needs to be replaced after approximately 3 years if you use it every day. When used only once a week, you won’t need to replace the batteries for some 7 years. If you don’t charge WakaWaka for a whole year, the capacity of the battery will be damaged. You can lose approximately 20% battery capacity. So make sure you keep using it!

 
2. How long does the battery last without using it?

4 months.

 

3. How does a WakaWaka work ?

When the sun hits the solar panel the energy is stored in a battery. If you need to light up the darkness, you simply switch it on by pressing the big button. Thanks to the super-efficient Sunboost chip, WakaWaka absorbs the maximum amount of power out of sunlight.

The WakaWaka Power+ and WakaWaka Base have a special extra feature: a charging function. Plug in any 5V chargeable USB device and the WakaWakas will start charging it. 


4. What is the life expectancy of WakaWaka? 

You can share the sun with your WakaWaka for up to 6 to 7 years depending on usage! So be nice to your WakaWaka, it's going to be around for a long time. Note that the leds will run for at least 50,000 hours (based on 4 hours per day = 30 years). When used on a daily base, the lifespan of the battery in the WakaWaka is 3 years. The lifespan is around 6 years when your battery daily depletes for 50%.

 

5. What is the life expectancy of the solar panels?

The solar panels will operate for at least 10 years. In an extreme environment with heat and dust.

 

6. Does my WakaWaka likes cold weather ?

The battery inside the WakaWaka Power+ is a high-temperature LiPo battery. This type of battery is resistant against operation at elevated temperatures, but like other LiPo batteries, it cannot be charged when the temperature drops below freezing (0 degrees C). Therefore, the electronics inside the WakaWaka Power+ will prevent charging at temperatures below freezing. The product can still be used as a light source, or to charge a phone, between 0 degrees C and -20 degrees C. However, please keep in mind that the battery performance will be temporarily degraded below freezing, so the amount of energy available will be less compared to a test performed at normal room temperature (25 degrees C). This also applies to the WakaWaka Light and WakaWaka Base.


7. Is WakaWaka waterproof ?

The WakaWaka Light is not waterproof, it is water resistant. It can withstand a decent tropical shower when the solar cell is positioned to face the sky. The side of the button and the LEDs are less resistant to water, but tests have shown it can withstand a reasonable rain shower on either side. We don’t advise to leave it out in the rain. The WakaWaka Power and WakaWaka Base have USB ports and are for this reason not waterproof. It can withstand some drops for sure, but don’t leave them in the rain. For these units, we have special waterproof pouches that will protect them from the water.

 

8. What does the indicator light on top of WakaWaka light mean?

The light on top indicates whether the WakaWaka Light is being charged through the solar panel by the sun. You can test this light and the solar panel by shinning a strong lamp on the solar panel. If the indicator light on top starts to blink, your solar panel works great.


9. How can I charge best WakaWaka via the sun?

The best circumstances in which to charge your WakaWaka is in direct sunlight and without anything blocking the panel. Filtering the sunlight by a glass window can influence the charge current of the WakaWaka: the glass blocks part of the UV radiation which in turn leads to a little less radiation on the solar cells and a little less sunlight being transformed into electricity. We recommend charging your WakaWaka direct, in morning sunshine or in the late afternoon sun. Try to turn the solar panels towards the sun during the day.

 

10. How long does it for my WakaWaka to charge?

Wakawaka Light:

The WakaWaka Light: You can charge your WakaWaka Light for 75% in approximately 6 hours of sunshine (NY latitude, summertime).

 

WakaWaka Power:

The WakaWaka Power+ takes 12 to 24 hours in direct sunlight to fully charge, depending on the intensity of the sun. If you don’t have the time to fully charge it via the sun or if you live somewhere in the world where you wish you had more sunny days, you can easily charge your WakaWaka Power+ via the AC grid.
