Re-Light / solar light bulb


Why waste light as an energy source? This bulb makes use of its own daytime light to recharge itself for later use. The light given off from the central LED light charges the solar panels in the upper portion of the bulb and stores it for later
use as a light. This environmentally friendly product makes a light bulb not only as a passive light source but also as an active electricity-storage system to power itself later on without having to plug it in.During normal use, the bulb recycles the light energy with its internal solar panel and stores it internally in the bulb.
