Simpliphi Power, Inc.
As you may have noticed, we weren’t always called SimpliPhi Power. In fact, we started out as the LibertyPak company back in 2002 and have been perfecting our innovative energy storage and management technology ever since. Since then, we`ve brought unparalleled off-grid power to everything from the giant moon on Conan O`Brien`s set to U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, to rooftops for Whole Foods and Airbnb. And we provide patented energy storage systems that are safer and more efficient than any others on the market. It all started in 2001, when our CTO and founder, Stuart Lennox, was working as a production designer for the film and television industry. He needed a cool-looking bicycle for a commercial shoot and thought the Lee Iacocca e-bike would be perfect.
“It was a folding electric bicycle that was lightweight and very fast,” remembers Stuart. “It had a cool look, and I was so impressed with the battery in it, I took out a loan on my home, went to e-bike and had six custom battery prototypes made that could be used to power 35 MM movie cameras and portable lighting to my specifications.”
The prototyped batteries worked so well that Stuart’s connections in the film and television industry started asking for more. Stuart had found his calling in off-grid energy storage for remote applications and founded LibertyPak a year later in 2002.
