Flexiway Solar's Solar Muscle is Aid Expo finalist
Our small solar-powered LED light, the Solar Muscle, was one of only 4 finalists chosen for the Aid Expo innovation Award ceremony which was held today.
In the end the award itself went to Divyesh Thakkar who presented another solar light which costs much more, is larger and more breakable, but also charges phones.
Here is our founder James during his presentation of the Solar Muscle to the audience and jury. He is still around in Brussels for the next days, so let us know if you want to meet to discuss opportunities!
We congratulate Divyesh and are sure that both our lights will help getting people out of poverty by replacing kerosene lamps. It is great to see that Aid Expo has recognized the importance of light for the delivery of international Aid. Please see the Awards backgrounds and the 4 finalists here. Our Solar Muscle is the smallest and lightest but also strongest light available and therefore perfect for Aid Organisations. It is weatherproof and fits nearly 3000 lights in a cubic metre!
