Are you ready for the storm?

Menlo Park, CA.
With 2012’s Superstorm Sandy still fresh in the country’s mind, it’s no wonder that preparedness is a top priority for families and individuals nationwide. Solar JOOS recognized this essential requirement for not only feeling safe, but actually having the tools to accomplish powered security in a time of need.
Thousands of citizens lined up to charge cellphones on the streets of New York, New Jersey, and beyond; and those were the ones that could make it out of their apartments and houses. When the batteries were dead, they had no way to power their devices back up to usability.
Solar JOOS recognized this as an enormous problem, and already has the solution to give peace of mind.
