The solar suitcase is a portable and self-contained solar power generation and lighting system suitable for medical settings. A plastic suitcase holds a solar panel along with a charge controller and battery to provide power when sunlight is unavailable. The case can be used in mobile settings or mounted to a wall, functioning as a cabinet.
Included are two medical LED lamps, a cellphone charger, an AA battery charger and outlets for other equipment. Additional batteries can be added to increase the energy the system can store. The system’s output is 15 amps at 12vdc and can be ordered with 40 or 80 watt solar panels. A 12 amp-hour sealed lead-acid battery is included. The system can be expanded with larger panels and batteries.
This rugged system is ideal for situations where small amounts of electricity are needed immediately, such as rural locations. The suitcase is easily transported and takes very little time and effort to set up. It is suitable for emergency medical care as it provides both lighting and power for medical equipment every day. The system operates on 12vdc with fault protection and has a sealed vapor free battery, making it safe to use inside of a healthcare facility.
