Awango by Total South Africa continues to light the way with safe, quality and affordable solar-powered lights
AWANGO by TOTAL South Africa
Awango by TOTAL solar lights rely 100% on the sun for power and come with their own mini self-sustaining solar panel. All the products in the range provide superior light intensity and are safer than candles and paraffin. Some even include cell phone charging capabilities, which is particularly beneficial for people living without electricity.
This is one of the initiatives that TOTAL is taking that underscores the company’s commitment to better energy, energy that is clean, reliable, safe and cost effective. Awango lights not only help those households that do not have access to electricity, but also reduces the cost of electricity for lower income earning households.
There are three products in the range:
- S20 D.Light solar lamp
- S300 D.Light solar lamp
- Sundaya T-Light Kit that includes up to four individual bayonet lamps.
The S20 D.Light is a simple solar lamp with a built-in polycrystalline solar panel and lithium battery in the top and a 50 000-hour LED light inside. After a full day’s charge it lasts between 4 and 8 hours, depending on the setting used. There are two brightness settings - standard for general light and high for a brighter light (for homework and reading). The lamp can be hung up or used standing on a flat surface. The battery can also be charged via a power point using a small (2mm) Nokia phone charger.
A bigger lamp, the S300 D.Light comes with a built-in lifeP04 battery, 60000 LED light and a separate, weather-resistant solar panel (not built-in to the lamp). It can charge up to five different types of cell phones (cell phone adapters included) and offers four brightness settings:
- high (studying and precision work)
- medium (cooking and working)
- low (socialising) and bed light (resting and sleeping)
For the high brightness setting, you can read and work easily up to one metre from the lamp and within a two meter radius. A full day’s charge lasts between 4 and 100 hours depending on the setting used. The battery can also be charged via a power point using a small 2mm Nokia phone charger.
The Sundaya T-Light Kit is a solar home system that can be expanded gradually. It comes with its own solar panel, up to four bayonet lamps, connection hub (linking the lamps to the solar panel), and four cell phone adapters. Unlike the solar lamps, this system doesn’t have a battery and allows you to put the solar panel on or next to the roof of your house outside and connect the lamps directly into the system inside.
Sundaya T-Lights offer three brightness settings:
- high for precision work
- medium for studying and cooking
- low for socializing
The system can be expanded upon by buying additional kits and connecting these into the existing hubs, effectively allowing you to bring light into every room of your home. A full day’s charge lasts between 7 and 75 hours, depending on the setting used.
The Awango by TOTAL range is available at TOTAL service stations nationally and through selected re-sellers. By expanding the re-seller base, the Awango by TOTAL project also facilitates the training of unemployed South Africans who are empowered to sell the products in their communities.
