This is the X850, the zenith of 10 years innovation journey and, the foundation for what is possible in the future with d.light.

X850

X850 is a Solar Home and multi-appliance powering system.The X850 combines the very best of solar energy and technology in one kit.
Soon after, Sam Goldman joined a course at the Stanford Design School called Design for Extreme Affordability where he met four co-founders, among them, Ned Tozun. Inspired by the desire to not have another child suffer like Sam’s neighbor, they set out to develop a solar light that could cost $5, the average monthly cost of kerosene. And it was only recently that this dream was made a reality. At just $5, the A1 can eradicate kerosene lamps everywhere it is made available.”

The S300 addresses lighting and mobile charging, while remaining easy to carry around. Until we launched the first version of this product back in 2008, solar portable lanterns were only associated with lighting. However, nobody was truly addressing mobile phone charging, which was a big need for rural customers because phones served as a source of information and empowerment for our customers. When coupled with consumer financing, the product was a huge hit with tens of millions of happy customers.
