MiSun - The best solar light in the world
The most functional and innovative portable solar lighting range in the world, MiSun solar lights are feature-rich in an extremely compact housing.
The MiSun light has endless possibilities for the user, and whether you're interested in the basic economical White model, the White + Motion Sensor, the Sound model or the premium programmable Color model, there is a MiSun product that will meet your lighting purposes.
The fully programmable Color models are controlled by the MiSun App., which sets the benchmark for hand-held solar light devices. Set the lights for any effect or mood you want, it's so versatile and controllable!
MiSun lighting systems are designed to be super energy-efficient, balancing solar energy capture, energy storage and light output perfectly.
- Truly portable lighting, suitable for indoor or outdoor use, with waterproof protection
- Solar/USB charging function, enables you to charge your mobile phone directly from the MiSun light.
- Range of accessories for many uses and attachment options
- Designed for long life, MiSun is a durable product, built with a product life-cycle in mind
- Made from environmentally sound materials, with heavy-metal free battery
- High power LED output performance with adjustable energy saving
- Compact, low-profile design for storage and transportation
- Change the atmosphere or appearance of any space with fully controllable effects and color options.
So many uses and applications
All materials and components have been carefully chosen to ensure high quality, durability and performance.
For the MiSun Color model, this is where the magic happens. The MiSun App. for Android (iOS version is in the works) gives you full control of your MiSun lights. We have created a beautiful, simplified user-friendly and intuitive App. which will have you playing with MiSun Color lights for hours at a time.
Imagine controlling up to 10 MiSun Color lights all at once, anywhere you like.
Our team is currently designing many accessories for a range of end uses which can be used with any MiSun model. We have working prototypes of these accessories below and will progressively make them as available options.
The materials and development process used to make MiSun were carefully considered, with product life-cycle and sustainability at the core of the design process. The number of components was kept to a minimum, design life to a maximum to extend the lifetime of the lights and to give us a highly-recyclable end product.
- ROHS Compliant
- Aluminum PCB. Heat sink gives longer LED life, easily recyclable
- LiFePO4 battery, lasts longer, less waste, no heavy metals
- Bluetooth Low Energy chip
- Ultrasonically sealed to extend product life
- Compact size saves materials and logistics costs
- Operates on renewable solar energy
- Non-toxic silicone outer ring
- 100% recyclable acrylic and ABS plastic housing
- Lasts between 5 and 10 years
- Designed for autonomous manufacturing methods
Initially, the first design was only an inexpensive, white, solar light, with limited functionality, that would meet the economic constraints within developing countries. The project would have been completed within the year, but requests came in to add more functions.
"Can I charge it from power supply?" "Can I use it to charge my phone?" "I want a motion sensor..." Two years passed, and I had a product I was happy with, and I was ready to start marketing.
But wait.... "I want colors and effects!", then "what about a solar radio with light?". As the requests came in the MiSun project team grew to meet these challenges. Finally during the third year of development and more than $250,000 invested into the project, we completed the design and prototyping for four exceptional MiSun products.
My vision for this product initially focused on inexpensive solar lights for developing countries, however this project has grown into a multi-purpose, feature-rich range of solar lighting products.
Finally, it was time to bring the MiSun products to life: With your help, we can mass produce the MiSun lighting products to be economically within reach for the estimated 1 billion people living without electric light in their home.
Our plans are to manufacturer and assemble these products in the USA, Turkey and China.
Risks and challenges
The MiSun team has completed fully working prototypes. Our next challenges relate to economies of scale, reducing the unit price through high volume mass production.
Quality assurance will be a major focus to ensure the end product meets both design and customer expectations.
Proper testing for compliance and regulations will be required before we release the product to market
Our team are experienced professionals, we will overcome any potential challenges faced.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
