Ability to Provide Quiet, Odorless Electrical Power Indoors and at Night Hailed in Solar Survivor Field Test
LAKE ELSINORE, CA, Mar 13, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
IDS Solar Technologies (OTCQB: IDST) announced that its 12-month
field testing program of its entry-level consumer product, the Solar
Survivor, exceeded expectations. One of the most impressive results
was the unit's reliability for use indoors and at night, both
conditions that prevent genset or gas powered electrical generators
from being trusted sources of electrical power.
Over the past 12 months the Solar Survivor was tested in real world
conditions, including indoors and in various conditions and scenarios
of temperature, altitude, humidity, and use in motor homes, at
several Southern California beaches and various locations in the San
Gabriel and San Gorgonio mountains, and in the Mojave Desert. Testing
also included spontaneous use during residential grid failures during
which its performance again exceeded all expectations. The Solar
Survivor was used to provide uninterrupted outdoor power for cell
phones, radios and lights while indoor electricity was provided for
cell phones, radio, TV and DVD player, lights, fan, and heating
During an electrical power outage in Southern California, the
Survivor was put to the test and delivered 6 1/2 hours of power to a
refrigerator with no loss or spoilage of food. The presence of the
Survivor also allowed neighbors to charge their cell phones when they
had no other source of power. "With the Survivor we had a bit more
peace of mind. Since using the Survivor for the past year I can't
understand why everyone would not want a Survivor in their home,"
said Tim S., one of the participants in the testing program.
The Company reported access to quiet, odorless, and sustainable
off-grid power indoors and at night broadens the range of experience
for recreational users and expands capabilities for small businesses.
The Company has a program that continues to monitor and analyze such
user information for incorporation into the development of its
