  • Most people's concept of solar power is large fixed panels on your rooftop with high investment and long-term payback. People don't realise you can now store solar energy to use on the go. The concept of a portable petrol generator is well understood and is still perceived at the only option for portable power. Small capacity powerbanks for phones understood, but the world needs a portable petrol generator alternative that is free of fossil fuels, clean, quiet, fumeless and uses FREE energy. Right now people are vulnerable to fuel prices, and dependency on expensive and unreliable electricity grids.

  • This sleek, portable, easy-to-carry, and durable design aims at giving people power independence. This portable solar power product is easy to understand and use, requires no additional installation or components besides a solar panel. By building an All-in-One system which includes the battery, technical controllers, inputs/ outputs, and safety mechanism, anyone can generate and use solar power easily. Just plug in a foldable or fixed solar panel to charge Cleo, then plug in your devices to power them on the spot. If the Cleo is charged you can unplug the panel and take Cleo to use wherever you need.
