sewing light / Lighting concept with clean energy

sewing light
sewing light

This product is a sewing machine power generation device. The output power can be used for lighting. It is mainly aimed at people in poor areas. Without changing the existing sewing machine products, some of the available energy is recovered to illuminate sewing workers and their families.
This product includes a generator and a table lamp with a battery. The generator is fixed on the lower frame of the sewing machine by a simple clamping method, and then meshes with the flywheel of the sewing machine through a roller to generate electricity. The base of the table lamp is connected to the main body of the table lamp by magnetic attraction.
