Our award-winning We Care Solar Suitcase® is an economical, easy-to-use solar electric system that provides health workers with highly efficient medical lighting and power for mobile communication and small medical devices. The We Care Solar Suitcase was designed to support timely and efficient emergency obstetric care, but can be used in a range of medical and humanitarian settings. The water-and-dust tight yellow case becomes a cabinet that mounts to the wall and the solar panels are secured to the roof. The system includes a 12V, 20Ah lithium ferrous phosphate battery, four high-efficiency LED lights for medical task lighting, two 12V DC accessory (lighter) sockets, two USB ports, and two expansion ports to allow for optional accessories or additional lights. A custom display and user interface make operation simple and intuitive. The Solar Suitcase also includes a fetal Doppler with rechargeable batteries, a battery charger for AAA or AA batteries, and two rechargeable headlamps.
Key design features include:
- Whole System Integration – The lighting appliances and power production components are delivered as one unit, designed for daily use.
- Safety – The LFP batteries can safely be stored inside health facilities; the low-voltage DC system avoids shock hazard and includes over-current protection.
- Low Maintenance – There are no fuses to replace, and no regular battery maintenance is required. Battery replacement is estimated to occur every five years.
- Durability – Our high quality components are designed for longevity, even in harsh environments.
