Sydney, Australia, June 12, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- David Thackray, 34, ran a small campervan conversion company until last year, when the complexity, size and cost of installing the solar electric systems caused him to stop making the conversions and focus on condensing the components into one package.
The “Sun-Seeker Pack” is the fruit of that labour - a powerful, tiny solar panel and all-in-one power pack, both of which fit into a small waterproof backpack. Powerful enough for a disaster, compact enough for fun.
“It was all about balance,” Mr Thackray said. “Finding the right combination of being powerful enough to be actually useful for more than just charging a phone while still being small and simple enough that it could be used anywhere.’’
Mr Thackray said his invention meant total independence from national grid power - a huge benefit in times of an emergency.
The pack features built-in household power points, USB, light and cigarette sockets, a flood light and car jump-starter leads.
And included in the waterproof backpack is a solar panel to charge it from the sun as well as leads to charge in your car or at home.
Mr Thackray, a former University of Wollongong student, has spent years tweaking his design and is now raring to go but it has been a long hard road to this point and he needs to crowd-fund the $175,000 necessary to make the factory moulds for the components, to pay for the import and export duty and taxes, and to fund the first production run.
Kickstarter campaigns operate under an “all-or-nothing” funding model so if the Sun-Seeker project doesn’t reach its goal at the end of 45 days then it goes home empty-handed.
