The firm revealed it has partnered with Vodacom to sell its new SunStream in a number of stores.

World Panel products are able to stream electricity from the sun directly into mobile devices without any chipsets or PC boards. The SunStream and SunStream Plus charge mobile phones at or near the same speed as a wall plug.

“I originally visited Africa with a solar prototype for household purposes and was consistently asked by residents whether it could charge their phones. I’ve returned with a product that is essential for anyone who owns a mobile phone but who has limited access to dependable energy sources,” said World Panel CEO John Anderson.

“We are honoured that Vodacom has joined us as a retail partner and are looking forward to reports on how the SunStream is changing lives and delivering energy independence across the African continent,” added Anderson.

World Panel registered a US Utility Patent earlier this year on the core technology inside the SunStream product range and now holds 20 design patents globallyincluding those in India, Japan, Europe and China.
