Eco-Source / solar battery


In some emergent cases like the earthquake-striken area, power, which is extremely important for life-saving and daily life, is often compelled to cut off.

Designed to solve problem above, Eco-Source is a new kind of solar storage cell with the structure similar to the tap measure.

With adaptable length, curvature and position, Eco-Source can be applied to various spots like the desert area, quake-striken area, common house, etc. It’s eco-friendly and portable.
