Magnet – Schneider portable Mobiya solar LED lanterns

Magnet now distributes new portable Mobiya solar LED lanterns, which have been designed by Schneider Electric as a convenient, safe and reliable source of energy efficient lighting.

Mobiya TS 170S off-grid portable solar LED lanterns consist of a solar panel and an integrated mobile phone charging facility, with a USB cable with 5 adaptors.

“This compact, user friendly lighting system is particularly well suited for use in off-grid households, small shops and for street vendors. Mobiya solar lanterns are also effective in power outages, emergency situations, vehicle or machine breakdowns, as well as for outdoor activities, like camping, fishing and entertaining,” says Brian Howarth, managing director, the Magnet Group. “Apart from the convenience of having uniform lighting available exactly where and when its needed, these lamps are equipped with a handy mobile phone charger, with USB ports, enabling users to charge mobile phones any time, at no cost.

“These environmentally friendly lanterns do not generate noise or emissions and can be hand carried, even by children. Robust Mobiya lanterns are drop impact resistant from a height of 1.5m and water resistant up to 0.5m for 1 hour.”

The Mobiya LED TS170S lantern has three level settings which provide 48 hours of light at 20 Lumens output, 12 hours of light at 85 Lumens and six hours of light at maximum170 Lumens.

An advanced Lithium Ferro Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery, with a 1 500 cycle, three year life span, is charged efficiently through the solar panel, with micro-controller based charge control to prevent over charge and deep discharge.

Smart electronics for battery monitoring shows indications for battery charging, the battery charge level remaining and the need for re-charging when drained. For added convenience, a Phosphorescent switch enables the user to locate the lamp in darkness.

Magnet – specialists in the supply and support of electrical equipment, industrial instrumentation and automation – has distributed Schneider Electric’s range of energy management systems for nearly 35 years.
