About

KaliPAK's are set for production!

 Click on the image or HERE to check the re-launch status!

Even though we have not reached our funding goal, we are committed to produce the KaliPAK's. 

We are already working around the clock on the re-launch of the campaign here in on Kickstarter.

If you are still able to back us before the end of the campaign - your price is guaranteed, and you'll also receive a special gift from our team.

Otherwise, if you reached this page after the campaign is over, and wish to pre-order and be among the first to receive special offers and re-launch notices, click the count-me-in button below, and fill in your details in the contact form (be sure to mention COUNT ME IN in the subject) -

KaliPAK™ is an environmentally friendly power source that is designed to provide energy when the grid is unavailable.

The KaliPAK is set to:

  • Replace polluting Diesel and Petrol Generators
  • providing on-the-go energy and connectivity outdoors, without affecting the environment.
  • Provide immediate solution to the lack of energy due to natural disasters
  • Be a portable, user-friendly, easy-to-carry energy storage device that is self-sustained by re-charging using solar energy.

KaliPAK™ is all the power you need when there is no power around.

The KaliPAK boasts a massive amount of energy to let you charge your devices dozens of times. 

KaliPAK provides enough light to illuminate the darkest nights:

Once the KaliPAK's battery is exhausted, you can recharge it using a regular outlet, a 12V car-lighter socket or better yet, charge it from the integrated, collapsible, 4X Solar Panel Fixture (patent pending). You can charge about 80% of the KaliPAK's battery in a sunny day.

Our design team gets quite picky when it comes to user experience. So we had to adhere to highly functional and easy-to-use standards, and create a most simple yet functional dashboard:

KaliPAK Operating Panel (Dashboard)
KaliPAK Operating Panel (Dashboard)

 The KaliPAK, when opened, reveals the folding 4X Solar Panel, its Angular Fixture, and the two accessories compartments:

KaliPAK features:

  • A massive amount of energy – 600 Watt hours (or 400 Wh in the 401 model). Enough to charge the newest smartphones about 100 times, or laptops 15-20 times, or provide 6 full nights of strong flood light
  • Lithium-Ion technology with circuit and fire protection
  • A small, portable pack: 6.3 Kg (less than 14 lbs.)
  • A patent-pending folding solar fixture that provides x4 more energy to recharge your kaliPAK, with improved efficiency due to precise angular adjustment fixture and MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) technology. All this goes IN the kaliPAK….
  • A clear and functional user interface, with one switch for all functions, 2 x USB ports (for charging smartphones, iPads, Tablets and more) and 2 x 12V ports to charge laptops, beer coolers, lighting projectors, AV devices, and much more
  • Through a built-in Bluetooth transmitter, and our own developed free KaliAPP™ – you can control your kaliPAK via your iPhone or Android smartphone. It will notify you how much energy you have left, whether you are correctly charging from the sun, or even provide you an emergency feature, for when you really need help.
  • Included with the KaliPAK, and stored in its padded compartments -  you will get the Survivor's PowerKit, a basic set of survival high-quality accessories, or you can place your own accessories - in the hefty storage space provided in the PAK. see below more details about the accessories that come in the KaliPAK
  • Compliance: CE, RoHS, FCC.

The KaliPAK Product line and specs:

KaliPAK works with:

  • Everything that can be charged/powered from a car-lighter socket
  • All laptops, Ultrabooks, Ai1’s (some need a plug adapter provided from the laptop mfr.)

Who needs a KaliPAK:

The Power Africa Initiative  - in partnership with Vital Capital Fund

Your backing will allow us to deliver KaliPAKs to African communities who lack energy infrastructure and make their life a little easier. 

Powering African communities is a novel idea but also poses a major logistic challenge. To make sure that KaliPAK’s will find their way to the right people, we teamed up with some friends who know their way around the continent:

With the great help of our friends and partners from Vital Capital Fund, we will ship, upon successful funding of our project one kaliPAK for every fifty produced, and a minimum of ten, to electricity-challenged communities in Africa through the fund's philanthropic arms in Africa. Such is  "the Fundacao art and culture" an NGO based in Luanda, Angola, which initiates and manages dozens of philanthropic health, educational and cultural initiatives for the benefit of the children, men and women of Angola. 

Vital Capital is an Impact Investment fund focused on sub-Sahara Africa, aiming to do good while doing well. To learn more go to: http://www.vital-capital.com/

Pledges and Rewards

The KaliPAK’s planned retail price starts at $595 when available - towards the end of 2015.

Obviously, if you back us from a country that shipping is charged, and we are able to reduce the shipping cost or provide it free, you will not be charged.


For countries not in the current list, please expect additional normal shipping and handling rates, and consider approximate additional 30 days for delivery. You may contact us at contact@kalisaya.com to check the status of shipping to your country.

Kalisaya as defined in the old Inca language, is what puts lightning, mood and energy together.

Even if not all of us directly suffer from hurricanes, earthquakes, or any other nature hiccup, we all feel the stress of “what if…”.

In a quick survey we posted, we found that the #1 reason for natural disaster stress is – communications disconnect. The #2 reason is darkness. We just don’t want to be left out in the dark.

So back in 2013, just after the debris from hurricane Sandy were cleared, we decided to compile our research conclusion and ideas, gathered our team of product and industrial designers, mechanical engineers, energy and solar experts – and kicked off the prototype project of the KaliPAK.

Risks and challenges

We developed a prototype and fiercely tested it.
We are CE, RoHS compliant, passed all tests.
We are eco-aware and comply with strict environmental guidelines to the extent possible.
We technically resolved all challenges.
We are committed to Social and Global Responsobility (See the PowerAfrica Initiative)

However, as with many early stage ventures, the future poses risks next to opportunities.
Some of this risks include:

1. Third Party Suppliers
We are relying on several third party suppliers for critical elements such Batteries, Solar Panels and Molds. We do try, pending budget limitations, not to be dependant on a single source for any element in our product.
However, if a third party supplier fails, or goes out of business, we will undergo some expected delays in our production.

2. Changes in Regulations and Legislations.
Slim chances, but batteries, electric components and solar panels are subject to changes in regulation from time to time. Such changes may impose delays in production time.

3. Patents and IP
We have conducted several patent searches (Conducted by the Intellectual Property Specialists - the Law firm of Soroker-Agmaon, Israel) - in order to confirm we can register our own patent, design patents and trademarks. However, these searches are limited by nature - and there might be a theoretical possibility that we are stepping on someone's toes. In such case, we will need to re-design or alter, or pay royalties. In the rare case that any of these scenarios will mean risking our business existence - we will seek alternative solutions.

4. Shipping to international backers
Though we have been shipping Lithium Ion batteries for a while, the regulations vary and are ever-changing. We closely monitor these changes and work with our international shippers to ensure delivery to our international backers. please contact us at contact@kalisaya.com to get an updated infromation regarding shipping to your country
