MTN South Africa has bundled World Panel’s SunStream as part of a promotional package.
Introduced in 2015, World Panel’s Sunstream product line allows users to stream electricity from the sun directly into their mobile devices. Built to international standards, the technology bypasses the need for chipsets or PC boards, which are notorious for breakage on typical solar charging devices.
The highly durable SunStream products can charge most feature phones at or near the same speed as a wall plug and can perform even while submerged in water.
The MTN/SunStream bundle carries an MSRP of R219 and includes a SunStream and R20 free airtime on the MTN network. This promotional package is expected to roll out across South Africa.
“The SunStream was developed with exactly this customer in mind: someone who views their mobile device as a lifeline, but lacks the power to keep it charged,” said Hennie Botha, World Panel’s Managing Director for South Africa. “The reliable, affordable power offered by the SunStream can be a game-changer.”
