SOS in a Box was designed by Sun Flare Systems to act as an emergency, backup power source that is charged using solar-power. The portable power supply can run devices with low wattage such as cell phone chargers, radios and emergency equipment from its 12-watt plug and can also be plugged into a car adapter.

The equipment is waterproof and Airline Approved meaning that the power source can toted to various locations easily. It includes a charge controller, solar-panels and a backup generator that can be beneficial for use outdoors when power is not readily available or in an emergency situation when traditional power sources are not accessible.

The device could also be a useful tool for first responders or as a part of emergency relief efforts when power is necessary but not readily available.
