The inspiration behind Kaze's design lies in the challenges faced by campers when dealing with bulky and immobile power stations. The traditional power supply often leads to a chaotic campsite, with wires connecting various appliances from a single power source. Kaze, however, is designed to simplify and enhance the camping experience by providing a modular power solution.
What sets Kaze apart from other power stations is its unique modular design. It offers different power supply modules for various areas of the camp, such as the dining area, entertainment area, and rest area. Each module is equipped with specific functions and can be easily carried and placed anywhere. Unlike other modular power stations, Kaze's modules are integrated into the case for quick access and easy storage, ensuring water and dust resistance.
Powered by a lithium iron phosphate battery, Kaze boasts high operating voltage, high energy density, long cycle life, and excellent safety performance. Each battery comes with a built-in Battery Management System (BMS), ensuring adaptability to a wide range of scenarios. Furthermore, Kaze stands out with its recognisable design, making it a perfect fit for urban camping.
Each module of Kaze has different power capacities and connectors, catering to various needs. The power station also includes a display screen to visualise the status of the power supply. The power cables are conveniently stored inside the case, making Kaze a user-friendly product. The design process of Kaze, which started in July 2022 and ended in September 2022, was carried out in Zhejiang, China.
Through extensive research and understanding of user needs, Xiao Han and his team, including Chengyong Li, Ting Dong, Xurong Shan, and Jingyi Jia, have successfully overcome the challenges of defining the functional requirements of different camping areas and providing a specific power supply for each. Their efforts have resulted in Kaze, a product that brings tidiness to the campsite and enables a more flexible power supply for appliances. This innovative design has earned Kaze the prestigious Silver A' Energy Products, Projects and Devices Design Award in 2023.
In conclusion, Kaze represents a significant leap forward in the field of portable power solutions. Its unique modular design, combined with its user-friendly features and award-winning recognition, makes it a game-changer in the camping industry. Kaze is not just a power station; it's a testament to the power of innovative design and technology.
