Solar TV: product overview

In rural areas, radio and television usually offer the only possibility to receive trans-regional news. They thus embody a quasi link to the world. Most firms and organizations find that soon after installation of solar lighting comes the request for solar operated television. However, suitable products are difficult to find. A solar operated device should use as little electricity as possible to minimize the costs of the solar power collector.

Televisions available on the local market are frequently less expensive, but their high electricity consumption makes it impossible to purchase an appropriate solar collector. sun connect has tested out the market and offers an overview of televisions suitable for combination with a solar collector.


  • 12 V operation
