The new generation of battery boxes have been manufactured by the team and ready for distribution at Rugaragara Kiosk next week.
These boxes are the third design e.quinox has had for the past 5 years. It has a 12V 7Ah battery, with 2 DC jacks for lights and a USB output for charging mobile phones. The design has been improved from last years' lessons learnt, which leads to a less complicated manufacturing process, and a body made of aluminium, which is lighter but more durable than the previous boxes.
A new PCB and program has also been designed by the team to help contribute to a lower cost and add new features to the box, in particular over-current protection, which should improve the business model of the Energy Kiosk solution by lengthening the lifetime of the product.
