Solution

Introduction: The proxy product the energy team has been using in July had features and problems that the July team was not satisfied with. In particular, the AC charger and the lead-acid battery of the GDLite were identified as areas that need to change; This is due to the risk of overcharging when charged through an AC connection. The desire to change from lead-acid to lithium-ion is driven by the short lifespan of lead-acid batteries as discussed in a previous post. The product should...

For the minority who are connected, experience regular blackouts, as ESCOM’s energy supply of 439MW is unable to meet the demands of the population. This forces the population to look to other, inadequate solutions...
