Luci, the first solar-powered lamp by MPowerD, is mostly made of plastic and weighs just 4 ounces; it retails for $14.95. The small lamp aims to provide affordable light to people living off the grid.
The company says that the 10 tiny LED lights can illuminate up to 15 square feet and lasts for 6-12 hours on 8 hours of solar charge.
Piverger, the CEO and co-founder of MPowerD told CNBC his company has already sold more than 100,000 lights with backorders for 100,000 more.
I’m not sure how much led light bulbs cost, or how long they last but this sounds like a good investment for emergencies or to go camping. I currently own a solar powered flashlight, but it does not last for more than 3-4 hours max.
If you currently own any type of solar-powered lantern please let us know if it worked like advertised? Or do you think you might look into purchasing Luci?
