Special Features of HiLight:
•Temperature Based Protection (TBP) – when temperature inside the HiLight is outside of the optimal range of -5 to 60 oC, the HiLight would cut off the charging/discharging of the battery and display a red warning light. This is to prolong the life span of the battery.
• Hibernation mode – HiLight will enter hibernation mode when the button is held on to more than 10 secs. This would subsequently store the battery to be used in times of emergency.

In October 2008, HiNation was founded with the sole purpose of providing both portable lighting and charging products of the highest quality. Our first product, HiLight, is a portable solar charger and lamp that provides 20 hours of light or up to 10 mobile phone charges from 10hrs of charging under the sun.

Following field tests to Botswana, Zambia and Tanzania, we have added new functionalities to the current version of HiLight. Apart from the charging and lighting functions, the current version provides additional features such as the Temperature Based Protection (TBP) and Hibernation Mode.

HiLight is sold throughout the world but we are mainly focused in Africa where the main bulk of people who truly needs HiLight lives. HiNation is engaged in the fight against poverty by constantly developing new ways to bring sustainable power and light to people living in rural communities.
