CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 07, 2017
The women behind solar start up LuminAID are innovators to keep an eye on — at least according to Forbes, and all five investors on Shark Tank! On February 7th, they’re launching their newest product on Kickstarter: the PackLite Max Phone Charger.
The PackLite Max Phone Charger is a powerful, ultra-bright lantern that packs down to less than 1″ thick and doubles as a solar phone charger for off-the-grid charging anywhere in the world. A “Give Light, Get Light” component will give backers the choice to provide a light to a Syrian refugee through one of LuminAID’s partner charities.
“SCM is so pleased to be working with LuminAID to get solar lanterns into the hands of refugees in Greece and Jordan who don’t have a reliable and safe source of lighting.” said Rita Zawaideh, CEO of SCM, “Not only are the lanterns addressing a safety issue (fires from gas lanterns) but as more children are getting enrolled in schools, the more they need to be able to study in the evenings after the sun has gone down. It’s so important to support the children as they get back to their studies as they truly are the future of Syria.”
