We offer a consumable-based iron battery that powers basic electronic devices. The consumables (iron, paper and iron salt) are sold separately and inserted in the battery to produce enough power to light a LED and charge a phone. Once discharged, the end solution can be safely disposed on the ground. It is the only affordable and safe solution that produces on-demand power in off-grid areas. Following teacher's interest, we also offer full educational kits that allows students to learn about energy conversion and renewable energies through fun experiments.
