An innovative solar-powered vintage lighting range is transforming the glamping experience after dark with high quality illumination designed to enhance the relaxing holiday environment.
The SolarHub Vintage range, from Solar Technology International, delivers vintage filament style illumination and a warming ambiance to a host of glamping structures including tents, yurts, ecopods, and cabins where there is no access to mains electricity.
SolarHub is an advanced power system using the latest high efficiency solar panels combined with a lithium battery hub capable of delivering energy at 12v to power lights as well as other equipment and devices including fans, 12v TV, lap top and mobile devices.
The beauty of the SolarHub Vintage range is its ease of installation. All parts fit together so there is no fiddly wiring to do – just plug and play!
The unique 12v DC, filament style LED bulb used in the SolarHub Vintage range is supplied in an E14, 80lumen brightness and an E27, 350lumen. Both provide outstanding levels of illumination (comparable with a mains bulb) but in a far warmer tone than conventional LEDs.
Each of the three* SolarHub Vintage kits are designed to provide five hours of nightly illumination in the UK between spring, all through summer and up until Autumn. For winter use there is a range of expansion solar panels that can be daisy chained to the solar panel supplied in the main starter kits to boost the charge rate enabling seven hours of light per night to be achieved – even in the winter!
All SolarHub Vintage kits can be expanded to add more lights, more power, more storage and more cable as required.
“By developing the SolarHub Vintage range, we wanted to be able to deliver the same quality of lighting we enjoy indoors, not the stark, white LED lighting normally associated with camping,” explained Adrian Williams, Managing Director of Solar Technology International. We are really pleased with the result. Your tent, yurt, ecopod or cabin can now feel really luxurious after dark and it’s all powered by daylight.”
Adrian added: “The other great thing about the SolarHub system is that it can also power other devices such as laptops, TVs and fans, as well as charge mobile phones, so you can enjoy all the modern conveniences of home within the relaxed glamping environment.”
