"eneloop" ENL-L1EX / Solar lantern

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

A global-perspective solution to “Light” up the earth and life. This is a rechargeable LED lantern which can be used over and over by using energy generated from the blessing of the sun. It uses the world’s highest efficiency HIT solar panel and saves the generated energy in a built-in nickel-metal hydride battery. In a village where there is no electricity infrastructure, this lantern can provide “Light” for a family’s dining room or a children’s study room. It can be easily carried and hung or fixed in various places. Further, its construction is such that multiple units can be stacked or connected side-by-side to offer even more light.
