We Are Now Open for Business in Nairobi

PowerSpot began its journey in East Africa with intense commercial activity and by participating in the leading trade fair within the energy sector.

These experiences as well as the great projections and interest shown for standalone energy solutions throughout the African continent, have led to the inauguration of our new business office in Nairobi in early 2017.


From now on, the PowerSpot generators may be obtained through our new branch in Kenya, which is now part of our sales network on the continent.


Market prospecting in East Africa

Powerspot is currently prospecting in Kenya and Tanzania to assess its marketing possibilities in East Africa.

Testing a Lanyard+ Extended using Hot Coals

There are people who don’t have enough with the theory; and Sandra is one of those. So she decided to field-test the PowerSpot Extended Lanyard to see if she could get electricity directly over hot coals. 

We love the way she prepared a hole in the ground and then hung the generator from a branch! You can read the full experience on her blog, the best travel .

Electricity in a Fireplace

Pablo made ​​an exhaustive test of one of our generators (PowerSpot Lanyard) that included water and gas consumption, the completely loading a mobile phone… 

In addition to providing some tips about how to protect the cables, one of the most interesting things he shows is how it works directly over a fireplace:

Comparing Lanyard+ Extended and Micro models

Pels and Poli have hiked up the mountain with two of our generators and performed an exhaustive comparison between the two. One of the interesting things they have done is that they have used the Lanyard+ Extended for cooking while it generated electricity (the extension is suitable for heating and eating food out of it). 

So the question they leave hanging is: Are you looking for greater volume or greater generating capacity? Depending on your choice you can opt for a different PowerSpot model.
