Model SRY-002-2 is a further enhanced version of the Model SRY-002-1 Solar Lighting Kits and consists of two LED lights, a mobile phone charger & a separate battery charging compartment where rechargeable batteries can be charged for use in separate portable radios or torches.
The larger Solar PV Panel consists of a 9V/2.5W solar module with a 5M cable that provides flexibility in being able to suitably locate the Solar Panel to maximise the solar input during the daylight hours, and still have enough length in the cable to extend the light to a point where it can be best utilized. The Solar PV module has a life cycle of approximately 10 years. The inbuilt controller provides protection against over-charging and over-discharging and also includes short-circuit protection. The battery pack consists of 5pieces of AA size x 1800mAH NI-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride) rechargeable batteries that are housed in a strong UV stabilized, heat resistant ABS plastic material for durability and longer life. The LED Lamps that are supplied with the kit consists of 2 x 9V lamps with each having 18 Light Emitting Diodes (LED) together with a 4M cable.

In addition the Model SRY-002-2 has a separate compartment provided in the front of the ABS battery pack where two (2) 600mAH NI-MH rechargeable batteries, that are supplied with the kit can be charged during the daylight period as well. These batteries can be used in a suitable flashlight or a portable radio. After the solar PV module has been charged for between 6-8 hours there are three brightness setting options that can be used for the LED light. The three settings will offer the following performance based upon both LED Lamps operating at the same time: Maximum Brightness for around 7 hours, Energy Saving mode for around 18 hours, and Low Brightness mode for approximately 45 hours of operation. The Model SRY-002-2 instruction manual is available in English and French and dependent upon quantities other languages are available as well.
