Solar Device "Hall of Shame"

We maintain a “Hall of Shame” of solar devices with in-built obsolescence. Most involve making the battery impossible to access/replace.

Please feel free to share here if you come across one at a repair event. We just added one from the Hackney event on Saturday.

For those who are keen, our next podcast is with an academic who works on this topic as it relates to subsaharan Africa and India.
