This is a portable power storing extension. It is used as a normal extension, the system detects that there is the power supply and starts charging its internal battery which can be used at any time. It has a 50000mAH battery capacity. Currently, 45% of Nigerians are without electricity and many more have less than 3 hours of daily electricity. How would the 188 million persons with mobile devices charge their devices without electricity? This situation offers a lot of opportunities for Sisapower.

Eco-Smart Aquaponics System
A mechatronics farming tool designed and built to circulate fish excretes dissolved in water from the fish pond to the grow bed so that the plants in the grow bed can absorb the waste as a rich nutrient, utilize it for its growth, and then purifies the water for the fish intake while the cycle repeats. The global aquaponics market size is valued at 580 million USD to 630 million as of 2018, according to a Business Intelligence report. The report forecasts the demand to grow at a CAGR of 14.5% – 15.5% going through to 2025.

RescuePlus is a car accident detection and rescue solution. This solution saves lives by decreasing the time required for information to reach emergency responders. The system employs the use of smart sensors to detect car crashes and reports the exact time and location of the accident to the relation of the victim and emergency responders for rescue. It will also enable collaborative driving which helps other users to generate road/traffic status and conditions to people within their network. It will create reliable and accurate data for the government to make policies, address infrastructural deficits and challenges on different roads facilities.

Solar Water Pumping System
Solar water pump system is an electrical pump system in which the electricity is provided by one or several Photovoltaic (PV) panels. It consists of a solar panel array that powers an electric motor, which in turn powers a bore pump, a plastic-based pump that results in less production cost than stainless steel material used in many solar pumps currently. The water is often pumped from the ground or stream into the farm directly for irrigation purposes.
