In emerging countries, one billion people do not have access to electricity and spend up to 30% of their wages to light up and charge their phones. Most of Sub-Saharan African people own a phone but need to go back to town to charge it.
hiLyte develops an iron battery based on a model of consumables to replace regularly, that enables people to get light and charge a phone. It is the only solution that is both affordable, clean and safe, that produces electricity on demand.
