Sonray Technology - Kulcar Solar Powered Car Ventilator to the Rescue

Last time when Mamarazzi used to fetch me home from school she had to park under the blazing sun while waiting for my class to end. To save petrol , she would turn off the engine and wait for me outside my school.

When I got into the car, I would sweat like mad.




This was the temperature when Papa fetch me home from school the other day. Am sure it's not good for the car. The interior material would spoilt fast. 

Papa and Mamarazzi likes to takes plastic bottles of water when traveling. Surely it's not good as I noticed sometimes these plastic bottle had gone out of shape.


There was once the windscreen of the the car broke too. Could be due to parking under the hot sun and the heat in the car was just too high.

Mamarazzi was thinking how nice it is it someone could come out with car cooler that would efficiently lower down our car's temperature and at the same time extending the life span of our car's interior material as we know that under high heat they are prone to release all kind of harmful fumes, wear and tear faster.

It was like a dream come true when she read Terry's blog. Terry of My Journey With Candida Blog introduced this terrific solar car cooler named Kulcar. This device harvest solar energy which  is environmental friendly.
 
She left a comment wishing for one too and Terry had put her in touch with Sonray Technology Inc.*Thanks, Terry!*



A few days later, we received Kulcar Solar Car Cooler from Sonray Technology Inc.

Kulcar Solar Powered Car Ventilator came in a neat box with instruction attached.


From Sonray Technology Inc website, she gathered that Kulcar Solar Powered Car Ventilator :-

  •  patented design internationally registered
  •  Made In Taiwan
  •  Kulcar Solar Powered Car Ventilator 5 V high efficiency solar cell
  •  Twin Turbo fans each with 17.3 cfm capacity
  •  90sec total air replacement for average car
  •  Reduce fuel consumption
  •  Reduce hazardous fumes emitting from plastics under high heat
  •  Added Comfort to passengers
  •  Maintains car interior in like new condition
  •  Kulcar Solar Powered Car Ventilator pivotal design for easy installation and storage
The temperature inside a sealed car under blazing sun can quickly exceed 89~90 degree Celsius.When the temperature exceeds 65 degree Celsius, harmful fumes will like methyl, acrolein, butanone, toluene, benzene, propyl benzine,etc.,are released from a car's interior materials.These compounds are all known to be cancer causing poisonous chemicals.

Careful testing has proven that the TVOC level of these compounds can exceed 12 times the cancer causing hazardous warning level when a car is parked under a blazing sun for only one hour. Cancers of unidentifiable origin have been the top killer for 31 consecutive years.

Volvo, a world leader in car safety has ensured that all new cars are equipped with the CZIP system as of 2013. When a car is parked under the sun, the CZIP system automatically pumps out the hot and hazardous air inside the car prior to the driver entering.Leading car makers are now concerned with not only driver safety,but also passenger health and safety.



She can't wait to install the solar cooler in our car. Here is the strip of rubber which Mamarazzi trimmed according to the size of our car window.



It's easy to install Kulcar Solar Car Cooler. Even a 5 year old kid like me can do it...with a bit help from Mamarazzi.

 
Here is how it looks from inside the car

 

The solar car cooler sure does it job well. Once the solar panel was under the sun, the fans immediately start working.




Mamarazzi purposely attached a strip of paper on the Kulcar Solar Car Cooler to show how strong is the wind coming from the fans.

  11. yes, what mamarazzi said about the heat trapped inside the car under hot sun is very true!! once a friend placed a CD with plastic case in the car, and the CD (together with the case) went crooked into an "amoeba" shape - you can see how hot it's in there.. @_@"

    ReplyDelete
  12. oh, that's indeed very easy installation even Small Kucing (and mamarazzi) could do that!! so it's actually meant to be put on and take off as and when needed right??

  14. Oh that's a very creative way to use the power of the sun! Good for you!! :)

  15. but i have one question.. since part of this kulcar is exposed outside of the car, i wonder if leaving it out there would attract thieves, or maybe knocked down by other bypassing vehicles?? you know lah, Malaysia~~ :p

    1. Goodness why would the thieves wanna steal this fan? They cannot even resell it for a fortune. When they see kaldip's buttock print on his seat, they might think twice!!

    2. the solar panel you can flip down. but with our hot weather here even with flipped down sure will "catch " sunlight unless parked under shades.

      Thieves wont wanna steal gua....

  16. Not sure if my comment previously went through, but I like this creative design that uses the solar power!

  17. Our country is so damn hot and have plenty of sun! We should invent everything that uses solar energy like this cooling fans! I love this invention and gets my thumbs up!!!

    I believe someday our cars can run with solar panels on the roof and bye bye petrol!

    1. thinking of installing solar panel roof but still so darn expensive leh. Heard government is giving subsidiyon that. If have solar roof the monthly electric bill they will give some sort of rebate wor. Same goes for electrical appliances

  18. Normally I have to leave the windows down a bit when I parked them under the blazing sun as the leather seats would get the whole car HOTTER! One day my car would catch inferno fire itself!!! Choi! Choi!...
    I think I need 2 fans to blow my kereta lembu panjang.

    Eh! How come you could get 40 degrees reading in your car! I would have died that day.

  19. When I was riding the bumpy bus ride in China's Anhui Province, heading to the Mount Jiuhua, I saw so many houses and shops in the villages had solar panels on their roofs! They didn't look like the hot water solar panels we see in Malaysia. I thought the mainland Chinese folks are smart to fully utilize the solar energy to be used in their house. I suspect those very remote villages have little or no electricity supply to their areas as China is unbelievably such a very huge country.

    1. That is surprising. They are already harvesting solar power. Hmm....i wonder how is the price for the installation over there.

    1. kekeke....forced to la....else shy to speak through recording

      Yea either that or you can leave the car parked la. Like when you go picnic or go buy something..shopping but had to park the car under the sun. Usually people will scroll down the window a bit for ventilation but with Kulcar no need to do that lor. The ventilator will pull the hot air out

  27. I like solar powered gadgets.

  28. Very interesting. We have super heat here, and you cannot get into your car sometimes. The temperatures can be(inside cars) 128 degrees F. which is 53.333 degrees C. We have to have air conditioning, and we have horrible stories of people forgetting their pets and even children in their cars to die. Sorry for being so morbid.

    1. Same over here. Many times kids and pets got left in the car and it lead to death.
