BioLite makes some of the absolute best camping and off-grid living solutions available right now. And it doesn’t look like they are slowing down anytime soon. In fact, they’ve recently introduced an excellent new kit called the SolarHome 620, which might be their best jab at renewable energy to date.

The kit consists of a 20 Wh control box, fed by a easy-to-install 6 watt solar panel, that feeds power to 3 hanging lights (with a combined output of 400 lumens), a USB charge-out, and an MP3/FM radio system. It even has motion sensor capabilities. Which makes it pretty much all you need electronically to get started living out of an adventure van or off the grid. In fact, it’s already been field tested in 5,000 homes across Kenya – which is a humanitarian effort, as an added bonus. So whether you’re looking to hit the road long term or you just want a backup system in case of power outages, you can preorder this kit now for $150.

Purchase: $150
