Born out of household research across India and sub-Saharan Africa, the SolarHome 620+ is a self-contained system of solar lighting and charging that can turn any off-grid structure into an electrified home. The system combines functional and protective lighting (motion sensor included), USB charging, and radio and mp3 capabilities, creating a hub designed for everyday use.
Ideal for cabins, van life, and hunting structures, the SolarHome 620+ is a perfect entry into solar living with easy installation and flexible setup.

How long does it take to charge the whole system? Approximately 6 hours in strong, direct sun. Set your panel up in a high, sunny spot for maximum charging.
How do I tell how much power I'm creating or storing? The LCD display on the Control Box gives you real-time feedback on sun strength and power available in your battery
Can I leave the solar panel out in all weather? Yes – in fact, rain helps keep the panel clear of dust for better performance. Just make sure that after heavy storms the panel is clear of debris and has not shifted.
Why isn't there an audio jack to play music? As a crossover product from BioLite, microSD and FM radio are the most common ways to listen to music in Kenya with the added benefit of not requiring power from your mobile phone. Loading up a microSD is easy and keeps your phone free for other functions
Can the lights be controlled individually? Yes! Each hanging light features its own on/off switch and can be set to LO, MED, or HI. They daisy-chain together from a single power source, but their brightness can be controlled individually.
How does the motion sensor work? One of your 3 hanging lights has an "eye" in the middle of the bulb. Press the light switch 4x until a small red light appears - the eye is now activated and your motion sensor will turn on with nearby movement, keeping the light on for 30 seconds before automatically turning off.
I don't have a van or cabin – can I use this for emergencies? Absolutely. The SolarHome 620 packs down to the size of a shoebox that you can keep stored easily right under your sink. We recommend charging up your Control Box in advance so you get a headstart in case a power outage occurs
