Akari solar light recommended

THE newly introduced Akari solar light system has been recommended.

Y-Sato Marine is currently importing the solar system from Japan.

Akari Solar Light Kit is a small-sized solar power system for household use equipped with one of GS Yuasa's long-life batteries.

By charging the battery during the day using the solar panel, it is possible to use LED lights during the night and charge mobile phones.

The product is equipped with two LED lights, and one of these lights provides three to ten times the brightness of similar products that are available on site.

The USB charging terminal the product is equipped with can be used charge things such as small rechargeable batteries (nickel-metal hydride batteries), electrical anti-mosquito devices, small fans, etc. This product could be used as a starter product for the electrification of households without electricity.

Ronly Unikana,28, who currently uses this new product thanked Y-Sato marine for importing  the new solar light into the country.

“We buy many solar lighting systems from other shops in Honiara but they are not bright like this Akari solar light from Japan.

“This Akari solar light was so bright, simple and last long for weeks before it be recharged so I recommend others to buy one today,” Mr Unikana said.
