LONDON, Feb. 19 /CSRwire/ - Solarway, along with 1,500 other companies, will be showcasing its cutting edge products and technologies at this year's GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 24-27. The event is the premiere gathering for mobile communication leaders to collaborate, compare notes, and conduct business.

With offices in London, Dubai, East & West Africa and South Africa, Solarway has engineered and developed personalized and sustainable power solutions for people with limited or no access to power. They have created a range of affordable, high quality solar-powered products that will enhance lives while being friendlier to the planet. Some of the products being highlighted at the event will include:

  • Solar Candle with Mobile Device Charging capability
  • Solar Mobile Device Charger
  • Solar Lantern with detachable light, Dual Phone Charger & FM Radio
  • Homework Light

Engineered to perform in rugged environments, these devices bring a source of light for those without a regular source of power and offer the ability to power cell phones. These products translate into significant cost savings for customers. Statistically, families who live off the grid spend a significant portion of their monthly income on kerosene oil or travel long distances to charge their mobile phones. For these families, Solarway products help eliminate almost all cost within a few months and in some cases within the first month of use. This results in increased ARPU for operators and reduced churn.

Additional benefits include enabling students to study and communicate in a safe environment. They offer illumination and power for charging devices during natural disasters when power is not available for weeks and sometimes months at a time, thus ensuring that survivors can stay in touch with one another and stay up to date with the latest information.

"We want Solarway products to be in homes across the globe, offering emergency power and lighting to those in developed countries, and an affordable power source and illumination to those in developing areas", says Marco Signorini, CEO of Solarway. "We are really looking forward to working with the telecom companies, and feel our products will compliment mobile devices of all types in all countries."

Over 900,000 units of Solarway's products have been sold in Africa since March, 2013. "The market is vast, and partnering with the telecom industry is simply a natural fit."
