A new solar-powered light purposely designed for portable toilets and showers has been launched by Solar Technology International.
Tibu light is an auto movement light and switches off after 90 seconds so that it can deliver up to 240 activations in any 24-hour period. The in-built 3W solar cell can charge the battery from full to flat in as little as five hours.
Tibu is ideal for sites of all kinds where there is little or no access to grid power and it is a clean, silent alternative to lights powered by a generator.
Tibu is made from a tough, impact resistant ABS material and an anti-theft lock prevents it from being shaken or dislodged during cleaning, loading and transportation. It is fully weather resistant and comes with a two-year warranty.
“As a company at the forefront of solar engineering and innovation, we are always looking for new ways to extend the use of off-grid solar solutions,” explains Adrian Williams, Managing Director of Solar Technology International.
“One of our team had the unpleasant experience of being in a portable toilet at an event in the dark and had to use his mobile phone as a torch. He thought there had to be a better solution with a dedicated solar-powered light and Tibu is the result.
“We worked closely with portable toilet suppliers and manufacturers to ensure Tibu delivered the performance that their customers require along with the robust properties and longevity they demand. Tibu is the first of its kind in the market and it’s yet another example of how solar power can meet a need where conventional, on-grid solutions are not always an option.”
