A Solar Powered Lighting System Worthy of Vanlife

BioLite SolarHome

Whether you are living out of a van, own a treehouse in the backyard, or just built the tiny home of your dreams, BioLite has a new off-the-grid lighting solution for you. The SolarHome 620 brings modern lighting, energy, and entertainment to transform any structure into a cozy home.

The SolarHome 620 system includes an easy-to-install 6 watt solar panel that captures daily sunshine to charge up a central 20 Wh control box. This control box powers three hanging 100-lumen lights (it also houses its own light), provides a USB charge-out station for your other gadgets, and also functions as an MP3/FM radio system. An Integrated LED display provides real-time feedback on your sun strength and power available.

All of the lights come with a wall mounted switch where you can adjust them to three levels of brightness. One of the lights also acts as a motion sensor light — you can keep it in security mode to save power but it will turn on to alert you of any passersby.

The SolarHome 620 is currently in use in over 5,000 homes across western Kenya so is more than ready for use in your own small structure. The system comes packed in a kit the size of a shoebox and weighs less than five pounds.

The BioLite SolarHome 620 retails for $150 and is available now.
