The eKiss Box and the even smaller Mini eKiss Box can be used to generate power in off-grid locations such as stables, outbuildings, sheds, camp sites or holiday homes. The systems are also ideal for governments, charities, individuals, aid agencies and churches wanting to fund electricity supplies for families and small businesses in rural areas of the developing world.
Available in four versions covering a power range between 350 and 2,000 Watts, the eKiss Box (short for energy Keep it simple & safe) is easy to install and operate and uses maintenance-free AGM batteries for electricity storage. Depending on the configuration of the system, potential applications include washing machines, refrigerators, telephone systems, televisions, laptops, portable power tools, e-bikes, electric golf trolleys and even caravans.
Each e-Kiss Box consists of three components: the polycrystalline ANTARIS SOLAR PV modules; inverters that convert the electricity from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC); and batteries that store the electricity generated by the solar panels. Up to twelve PV modules can be connected to the eKiss Box. Each system is customised to the customer’s individual power requirements.
In addition to the eKiss Box, the Mini eKiss Box is a briefcase-sized solar charging box with pluggable panels and a maintenance-free 12 V DC lead-acid battery, complete with an on/off switch. It has a maximum output of Max 65W and is perfect for powering small fans, battery chargers, laptops or mobile phones.
