Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern Lights The Way

Solar lights and lighting aren’t a new invention in the scope of green gadget design – we’ve definitely seem plenty of examples large and small over the years. It takes a little bit of innovation therefore to make a product which stands out in this category, and it looks as if the Luci inflatable solar lantern from MPowered could very will be one which you take notice of.

Luci, according to its makers, functions as a task light, flash light or diffused lantern, depending upon what application you apply it to. It sports small solar panels on the bottom of its collapsible frame which, over a charge time of eight hours, can provide enough juice to the rechargeable lithium-ion battery for a minimum of 6 to 12 hours of light from the 10 LEDs built into it. This charge can be reportedly held for up to three months before it needs recharging again.
