A solar-powered device, which can generate electricity for light and charging appliances, could be of what I need in the near future. Having heard HiNation has its HiLight that can charge under the sun, and act as a portable energy source, I yearned to test one myself. Fortunately I was able to borrow the HiLight from my friend.
The promising device started to change my life little by little when I realised its reliability for my daily usage. Using of electrical gadgets has become my life and I have to make sure that they do not run out of juice when I’m out. I could prepare myself with other type of portable charger; however they do rely on electrical port before they are bestowed with power to assist me. What if I do not have a charged portable charger? What if I do not have an adapter to charge? What if I cannot find an electrical port nearby?
I will not have to worry about the above problems if I have an alternative source of power available to me. HiLight is one device that grants me an access to the ever sunlight for electricity. I can always charge the portable charger anytime in the day with the solar panel built on the device.
When there is sunlight, there is always power generated by HiLight for me; it is perhaps the reason why the Decepticon activated their Sun Harvester to generate all the Energon they want. The power “from” the sun is now easily in the palm of my hand; Doc Ock probably didn’t have to go through the trouble of building a reactor if he learnt this.
The Sun that accompanies me in the day will still accompany me at night when electricity is converted by the solar cells are stored in my HiLight. As it continues to “shine” on me 24/7, I think I need not worry “being dark” from the world with my electrical gadgets and readily available electricity by my side.
Following the publication of “HiLight by HiNation Userguide and Troubleshooting” video, we have produced a similar video but incorporating interactive functions. In this video, you can select your order of viewing the 5 topics; namely “Charging your HiLight”, “Light”, “Charging your devices”, “Troubleshooting” and “Contacts”. Click and view the video below.

I travelled to Tallinn, Estonia over the weekend for a short getaway. It snowed 2 days before I reached Tallinn and the temperature was very cold (-2 deg in the day). I took the opportunity to try out HiLight as well.
During the day when walking around the old town, I would hang the HiLight on my bag using the adjustable straps. At first I was afraid that the cold and falling snow might affect the device but when I tried to use the HiLight again at night, it worked perfectly.
I used the HiLight during the trip mainly to charge my mobile phone. Even though I did not get much opportunity to charge the HiLight under the sun, I managed to use the full battery of HiLight to charge my mobile phone from zero to full for 2 times.
I feel that the HiLight is a very useful replacement for external mobile phone charger. It does not take up space inside the bag and the battery capacity is big enough to ensure that the mobile phone can last for at least a couple of days.
