Two-year-old Germany-based Changers has closed $1.5 million in Series A financing. BFB Frühphasenfonds Brandenburg led the round with participation from Heliocentris Energy Solutions and additional private investors.
Changers is known for its Changers Starter Kit, comprising a portable PV solar panel and a portable solar battery that measures how much energy it captures and stores. Thousands of people use Changers to capture renewable energy and charge their handheld devices.
The funding enables Changers to accelerate its product development plans, strengthen its presence in the growing ‘connected home’ business and take advantage of consumers’ rising interest in energy independence and sustainability.
