HiLight by HiNationA 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.

HiLight charging under the sun

Singapore – Jackalyn Pang Hui Fang

HiLight_Story_15_Jackalyn_Pang_3I first got to know about the HiLight from my brother, Max Pang. After reading about the uses and functions of HiLight from their website and some clarifications with my brother, I have decided to purchase a set of it to try out. Since I am living in Singapore, the sunny weather here is very apt for charging the HiLight.

One may be sceptical about the practicality of using HiLight in Singapore, considering her small geographical land area and easy access to electrical outlets in libraries or cafes. However, I found out that this is not always true. With the HiLight, I do not have to worry about having to find an electrical outlet to charge my phone, or having no phone connection at all when the battery goes flat. It is a bonus to be able to charge my phone on-the-go, considering that the Samsung Galaxy S2 model which I am currently using has a poor battery life. This also saves up waiting time for the phone to charge up, which is necessary if one is using the electrical outlet.

However, one thing about the HiLight is that it is only able to charge one electrical device at a time. This makes it inconvenient if there is more than one electrical device that needs to be charged.

All in all, it is a positive experience using the HiLight, and I am looking forward to see some electrical bills savings in the long run.
