Product overview

SureChill’s off-grid fridge provides continuous cooling even when the sun goes down. It’s perfect for off-grid homes.
Our innovative technology means there’s no battery to wear out, so no costly repairs or replacements. Using water and our natural thermal energy store to cool and to store energy, it offers unfailing cooling and unrivalled temperature stability.
Free from the more harmful refrigerants and large batteries, it’s energy-efficient and environmentally friendly. 
It’s designed for remote communities with affordability in mind. A PAY-Go feature allows our fridges to be used on Angaza’s secure and efficient mobile payment service, making this life-changing technology available to all. 
Pay-as-you-use cooling has never been so easy or reliable.
