AMES, Iowa, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Many have experienced the hassle of finding a power source to charge up while in the great outdoors. Whether it's a work email or a call from a loved one, it's hard to deny we thrive on staying connected. Iowa-based PowerFilm is listening - and has created the Made-in-America LightSaver Max, a portable solar charger, to take the worry out of adventuring, by reliably powering your portable devices.
The company officially launches the LightSaver Max on Indiegogo today - with the goal to fill a void in the solar charger market. Currently, there isn't an all-in-one solar charger that is lightweight, but still packs the punch of the LightSaver Max - which includes an amorphous silicon panel and a built in 15,600 mAh internal battery.
The LightSaver Max allows everyone from hikers to military members to charge electronic devices wherever they may be, day or night. Whether camping, on base or on a trail, this 1.5 pound compact device features U.S. military approved solar and easily fits in a travel pack.
"We've been developing and manufacturing unique, flexible solar module technology for nearly three decades, including solar tents for the Army," said Frank Jeffrey, Co-Founder and President of PowerFilm. "We wanted to create a product for adventurers like us who want that next level of reliable power to keep them connected anywhere they go - that's the LightSaver Max."
The LightSaver Max is:
Efficient. Charges quickly and can be attached to your backpack to charge while you're on-the-go. (An iPhone 6 will charge in approximately two hours and is similar to a wall outlet charge.)
Durable. Will stand up in harsh weather and is not easily damaged.
Lightweight. Weighing in at 1.5 lbs, the Max is far and away the best complete solar solution.
Versatile. Can charge any device that uses a 5 volt USB charge outlet.
- 15,600 mAh battery
