A solar solution of a new generation

The OOLUX solar solution has been developed with the wish to create a product offering a convincing technological advancement and first-class performance.

High performances

oolux_performanceThe OOLUX PowerBox has a remarkable capacity to charge quickly: 10 hours of direct exposure to sunlight are sufficient to fully charge the battery. Adapted in a novel way, its MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) technology optimises the charging of the battery at all times. The OOLUX lamps consume very little energy and procure up to 32 hours of lighting with a single charge of the PowerBox.

The OOLUX performance assures a sufficient electricity supply even if it is not possible to charge the PowerBox for several days (for example when there is bad weather). At the rate of 4 or 5 hours of use per day, the fully charged PowerBox provides nearly a week’s worth of lighting or the capacity to charge ten mobile phones.

Swiss technology

OOLUX is developed and, for the most part, manufactured in Switzerland. Various partners bring their know-how to the project e.g the Bern University of Applied Sciences provides its knowledge on advanced solar and electronics technology. Other Swiss companies contribute to its development, production and manufacture.

This high quality research is apparent in the product’s remarkable technical performance and longevity. These qualities are highly valued in our target market, where existing products are generally neither reliable nor hard-wearing. Furthermore, for our low-income customers, the quality and the sustainability of a product is essential as it represents a significant investment.

Astute design

kit_flinkParticular attention has been paid to the design of the different OOLUX modules, like the PowerBox and the lamp, which demonstrate exemplary quality in terms of resistance to shock, dust and humidity. The rubber band of the lamp can be used to hang or fix it in multiple ways, an astute design that makes it possible for the lamp to be used in various contexts.

The buttons on the lamps and the PowerBox are capacitive touch buttons, a technology usually used for smartphones. With this technology the sensor can be hidden beneath the casing of the lamp and the PowerBox, thus protecting it from the risk of penetrating dust and water.
