Sun-Seeker Solar Generators

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2015-06-11

Sick of rising electricity bills and being stuck on the grid? Well get free. Freedom from the power companies in your rental property or own home. Freedom to pick up a pack at any time and take your creature comforts like refrigeration and lighting with you into the great outdoors. It’s not just a luxury. It’s being prepared for emergencies (floods, bushfires etc) and blackouts, and a positive new way to power people and communities across Australia and the world. Our start-up operation has designed an innovative range of solar generators – a simple, easy solution to save everyone money and do more for the environment. So support our launch and take the power back for yourself. We took **our expertise in building campervans and combined it **with the same battery technology as the Tesla Powerwall to produce a portable solar power package that is so much more than a phone charger.

I just want to give you an update. The portable Solar Panel that I received is working wonderfully. I have it open to the sun on cloudy days and even that has given me 0.30 Amps at 240 Volts (through a 1000W Grid-tie converter, of course). I use it to supplement the grid power and to reduce consumption costs. I like it because of the unique shape, folding out to a 17 inch width, and around 74 inches in length! Not many solar panels are as convenient, being more rectangular. Thanks for the unique design! I look forward to paralleling it with more of the same later.

Hey David, How's production coming along? When do you expect surveys to go out? I'm excited to start living off the grid for extended weekends.

Hi Josh
That is still being finalised. The company already manufactured a case we were able to adapt to fit the Weekender pack perfectly which made it easy. The Survival case will need to be made specifically for us so we are in the process of figuring out the best configuration to make it as small as possible. The weight will be approx 20kg but again this will change depending on the finalised case.

Thanks for the quick response David, What are the dimensions of the case? What about total weight?

Hi Josh
Yes at this stage it is looking like both of them will be in the hard abs case rather than aluminium. Thanks for your support!

Review from Kickstarter
Will the survival pack be contained in a hard case like the weekender?

New case looks awesome mate. It's a winner for sure. Keep up the good work!

Hi Sheila!
Sorry for the delay, it's a bit crazy here at the moment!
It really depends on what you need to power and whether you will be driving everyday or stationary for a few days often. Also how long you will be on each trip.
If it is just a 12v fridge and some LED lights with charging a phone/laptop occasionally and you are only going for weekend trips then you can probably do without the solar, just charge at home and then keep topped up in the car while driving.
If you are going to be stopped for a few days somewhere or want to use any 240v appliances then at least one solar panel is a good idea so the battery is constantly refilling whetehr you are driving or stopped.
You can also take it with you if you stop for lunch etc and charge it in a cafe, it takes about 2 hours to fill completely via a wall socket but you can just leave it one for however long you stop for, there is no need to fill it every time or drain it completely either. The battery is happy to be at any level of charge except for completely flat and then going into storage.
Any other questions or clarification let me know, after the last 2 years living and breathing solar I sometimes forget what I didn't know when i started doing this! ;-) David

I was a little confused about the solar panels, too.
How many will I need for the weekend solar pack.......just for normal use...... Or do you think for campervan use, I can use the car battery charger?

Review from Kickstarter
I love the way I can now now choose the power pack and choose the solar cells to suit my needs instead of being locked into the more expensive flexible solar cells. The weight of the cells is not an issue for me. Thanks David

Alright! I'm so happy things are off to touch a great start! His is an incredibly useful and will sized power solution...with the best battery technology around. Do you have pricing for the enhanced battery sizes yet?

Good luck, David looks like a great solution you have, and nice to see its going to be Australian made.

Hi All
We will send units to anywhere in the world and we can make 120v 60hz option.
We are sorry that in the video it says included solar panel and in the ooptions they are listed separately. This was due to the fact we originally were planning on including the one in the video but had a number of people suggest they would prefer a cheaper option, especially if they were not planning on using it for very mobile applications.
Shipping to the USA and UK is approx $200 Australian if sent separately however will be cheaper if sent in bulk so yes the best option is to pledge and then I can tell you the amount for shipping at the conclusion of the campaign depending on the number of backers in your country. Sorry it's flat out here and I will try to update the campaign with any ambiguities like that as we go! Thanks for your comments and support, please share with your friends!

Does each Power Pack pledge come with a solar panel? It seems unclear to me. Thanks.

Need 120v 60hz option for US backers. How many units will need to be pledged for this option.

I am hoping you are going to sort out this AUS only shipping option. It is not going to work.
Let us know shipping costs to the US and and UK at the end of the campaign, and based on number of backers to each location actual costs can be determined.
