As the world becomes more conscious of its environmental impact, companies need to innovate and adapt to the changing needs of consumers. At instagrid, we take pride in being at the forefront of the sustainability movement, and our modular product is a testament to our commitment to creating innovative solutions that benefit both our customers and the environment. We understand that modularity and sustainability are key factors in choosing a power source, and we have designed our product with these principles in mind.
In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at our modular product and how each part is easy to change and fix, as well as how you can change the frame of the product yourself without having to send your device to our labs.
Modularity is the key to the success of the recyclability and repairability of our instagrid ONE max. Each part is designed to be easily replaceable, making maintenance and repairs simple and cost-effective. We designed our product in a modular way that facilitates the dismantling and repairing of each component, enabling our customers to repair minor defects themselves. Major defects are handled by our great technical service team. This translates to a repair rate of 88%, notably higher than those of smartphones (29%) or LED TVs (47%). * But our ambition doesn’t stop at 88%! In 2023 we want to increase our repair rate to 90% of returned systems. Therefore, we plan to increase the capacity of our technical service team and enable our business partners to do first level support.
This repairability is a huge advantage over traditional combustion generators, which are often difficult and expensive to fix once damaged. With instagrid, you can replace individual parts, such as the frame, without having to replace the entire unit. This not only saves money by avoiding expensive shipping fees, but it also reduces waste and helps to prolong the lifespan of the product.
One exciting feature of the instagrid ONE max is the ease with which the frame of the product can be manually exchanged[SB1] without trained electrical skills. The frame is the outer casing of the product, and it is designed to be lightweight, durable, and easy to assemble. It will absorb any impact and distribute the force of such impact through the whole frame. That can cause the aluminum frame to bend, keeping the batteries inside the product intact. This is a big step for anyone in need of portable energy, as the product can be easily transported and adapted to different environments, without having to worry so much about where to set the battery.
Changing the frame of the product is incredibly simple. The frame is held together by a series of screws, which can be easily disassembled and reassembled using only a ballpoint 4mm screwdriver. This means that customers can swap out the frame of the product in a matter of minutes, without needing any special tools or expertise. We understand that traditional gas generators are often difficult and expensive to repair, which is why we have made our product as user-friendly as possible.

In conclusion, we at instagrid want to be leading the way in the sustainability movement with our innovative modular product, which is designed to make maintenance and repairs as easy and cost-effective as possible. This makes the product incredibly versatile and adaptable to different environments and sectors, and it is a huge advantage for businesses that require a mobile power source like yours. With instagrid, you can join the movement and enjoy all the benefits of a combustion generator, without any of the environmental drawbacks.
