Fishing lanterns for use on Lake Victoria were specifically developed for WeTu. They are very durable, and their lithium-ion batteries replace lead batteries that often go overboard in stormy weather and land on the bottom of the lake – with negative environmental consequences. The NIWA and Windsor lanterns can be charged at each WeTu site and are easily transportable. With 12 hours of light and a lifespan of up to 500 charging cycles, the lanterns are considered quite durable and sustainable.
Mobile GreenPack batteries can also be rented at WeTu hubs for use in e-mobility vehicles or as a source of power for small workshops or businesses.
