We’ve kicked off the campaign with an initial donation to Good360 of 50 HANS™ PowerPack 300 and 50 HANS™ Solar BriefCase 60. Good360 will distribute the products through its network of highly vetted nonprofits in Puerto Rico.
Donate a HANS™ PowerPack 300 ($429) by buying one from this page. For each HANS™ PowerPack 300 purchased for donation through this website, the Makers of HANS™ products will donate a HANS™ Solar BriefCase 60 ($329 value) and also make a monetary donation to support access to clean energy in Puerto Rico.
Help us reach our initial goal!
We’ve set an initial goal of 100 donated HANS™ PowerPack 300. Once we hit that milestone, the Makers of HANS™ products will make an additional donation of 100 HANS™ PowerPack 300 and 100 HANS™ Solar BriefCase 60 for distribution to Puerto Ricans in need.
Your donation will allow recipients to continue to work and study at night, keep their communication devices charged so they can stay in touch with their family and friends and provide them with the ability to power small fans, which help people sleep in the hot and humid climate of Puerto Rico.
The Makers of HANS™ products are a proud sponsor of the Energize-Mobilize: Puerto Rico initiative.
The HANS™ PowerPack 300 and
the HANS™Solar BriefCase 60
The HANS™ PowerPack 300 is a personal, portable power plant. A single charge of the unit gives the recipient…*
- up to 300 hours of light
- up to 30x mobile phone charges
- up to 8x tablet charges
- Ability to run small USB or 12V fans and radios
The HANS™ PowerPack 300 is ideal for providing light and portable power to individuals in disaster-stricken areas. It features:
- Three (3) built-in 1W LED floodlights
- One (1) built-in 2W LED spotlight
- Built-in 4.5W solar panel, with kickstand, for battery charging
- Built-in 12V outlet
- Built-in USB port
- 12V dual USB port expansion plug, which allows for three USB devices to be charged at once (temporarily replaces the 12V outlet with two additional USB ports)
The HANS™ PowerPack 300 weighs only 9 lbs. and is built to last, which is why it will be useful for this recovery situation, and also the next, should another major storm strike in the coming seasons. We back it with a 12-year limited warranty.
The HANS™ Solar BriefCase 60 that will be included in your donation provides an additional 60 Watts of portable solar power (for a total of 64.5 Watts). This will recharge the HANS™ PowerPack 300 in around seven hours, using only the sun. The HANS™ PowerPack 300 can also be recharged using an included AC adaptor.
‡For each HANS™ PowerPack 300 purchased for donation to the Billions in Change Foundation for distribution by GOOD360 in Puerto Rico, a cash donation and a HANS™ Solar BriefCase 60 will be contributed to support access to energy in Puerto Rico. After the first 100 HANS™ PowerPack 300 have been purchased for donation, an additional donation will be made of 100 HANS™ PowerPack 300 and 100 HANS™ Solar BriefCase 60. GOOD360 is a 501(c)(3) public charity that partners with socially responsible companies to source highly needed goods and distribute them through its network of diverse nonprofits that support people in need. Billions in Change Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity that raises awareness of global problems related to water, energy, and healthcare and their impact on human life and raises funds to support the development and implementation of solutions to these global problems. This promotion will last until July 31, 2018. Your donation of a HANS™ PowerPack 300 purchased for donation to the Billions in Change Foundation will be treated as a charitable contribution for U.S. tax purposes.
