The Home Depot, a home improvement retailer, is now offering SunJack portable power products for sale on the store’s website. The Kickstarter-funded device is manufactured by GigaWatt Inc, a California solar company that distributes and installs solar components.
The SunJack is described as a charger that can charge 8 smartphones or 2 tablets with only 5 hours of sunlight. Each of its kits include:
- 14/20 Watt Foldable Solar Panel with two 2A USB ports
- Ultraslim Lithium-Polymer battery
- SunJack fast-charge battery cable
- Handy carabiners for hanging your SunJack
- Instruction manual
“To have our solar charger sold by the world’s largest hardware retailer within 12 months of launching is a great milestone. It’s a testament to the power of crowdfunding, the growth of solar, and to The Home Depot’s vision.” Tan developed SunJack as an answer to his portable power needs while backpacking and adventuring, and also as a rapid energy-independence solution for developing nations that lack reliable power grids.
DIYers and home improvers can benefit from SunJack’s portable power solutions as they work on construction areas void of power and prefer to use clean renewable energy instead of noisy dirty generators.
The SunJack line also provides innovative lighting solutions with the CampLight and the LightStick. The SunJack CampLight replicates an regular incandescent bulb, but can be powered independently from the SunJack or any USB power source without requiring electrical wiring. The SunJack LightStick is a next generation flashlight that provides a broad area of illumination while also acting as a powerbank to power phones, tablets, cameras, and other USB devices.
