Hello Backers! We appreciate your loyal support and listened to your feedback. Please take a look at our re-designed Solstice Portable Power charger for USB devices - and support us again this upcoming March, 2015!
We took valuable feedback and suggestions from a 140+ Kickstarter backers in 2013 and implemented many key changes to the new Solstice which include: a more sturdy and easily replaced battery cartridge with 60,000 mAh of stored energy and no wires to connect, heavy duty / ruggedized outdoor design, durable plastic housing, thick rubber coated handle, two different colors, bright white LEDs, emergency flashers, and easier access to USB charging ports. Less about the technical aspects, more about its off grid or emergency uses and available power when and where you need it most. The MetAir Solstice is completely green, non-toxic, non flammable and offers the most energy density in the smallest form factor of any commercial disposable battery. The new Solstice portable power unit comes in two colors, Emergency Red or Desert Beige. The cost for one unit will be $79 (includes one battery). The replaceable zinc-air battery cartridge will be $29 OR about $1 per cell phone charge when the power is out or you are voluntarily off the grid enjoying the great outdoors for days a time. Please support our new design and second launch in early March, 2015. We appreciate your support and feedback. Cheers! Kevin Maloney, MetAir Founder.
