The light is easy for most of us, just flip the switch. But this is not the reality for everyone. In some countries, it is very difficult to access electricity and these people have to use kerosene candles and lanterns, which in turn are inconvenient and sometimes dangerous, especially in homes with vulnerable structures. Hopefully this kind of product reaches those people who need it. Currently, LUCI is marketed in the United States, particularly for emergency situations and camping.
A lamp that works 8 hours with a single glass of salt water
The American company MPOWERD has created LUCI, an inflatable lantern that works only on solar energy and can be used in emergency situations or when we have difficulty accessing electricity.
With the use of totally clean energy that can be used by anyone in any situation, just put it in the sun for 8 hours and it will give us light for about 12 hours, even under the water.
This flashlight can be compressed to a size of 2.5cm and a weight of 113g. It has an on / off switch, is shatterproof, waterproof and floats on water. It has four LED lights and four light settings.
The cost varies between $ 9.99 and $ 24.99 depending on the model chosen.
From the company website MPOWEREDYou can participate in the Global Luci program by donating flashlights ($ 9.99 each) to various non-profit organizations (NGOs).
MPOWERED received the CES Innovation Award 2015 for its Luci EMRG.
