The i-Kabin is a completely off-grid solar-powered battery recharging Kiosk. Just like a village water well, where people come in the center of town to get a bucket of water for their daily usage, the i-Kabin provides electricity without the hassle of creating a village electricity grid. i-Kabins can be installed and operational in a matter of hours. At an affordable cost, customers can buy a mobile battery (the “bucket) to get access to electricity. To recharge the mobile battery (i-Pack), the user goes to the closest i-Kabin, operated by a local entrepreneur, to recharge his i-Pack.
