Light up / Solar lighting bookmark

Light up

At present, people's use of solar energy technology has matured, so we have designed this solar reading light bookmark to create new lighting methods for children in Africa that do not have sufficient power resources and only read books under dim kerosene lamps on dark nights. They can read in the dark night accompanied by the soft light from this reading lamp. We use the latest photovoltaic and battery technology, and the LED energy-saving light bulb has a long service life, which is very suitable for Africa because there is plenty of sunlight during the daytime. This will better help children read and learn, and save more energy.
