Nokero have designed and created the world’s first solar lightbulb designed specifically for developing nations where electricity is impossible to supply or unreliable. Watch the demo video after the jump for much information.
The Nokero N100 solar powered lightbulb is enchased in a rainproof impact resistant enclosure and on a full charge can provide up to 4 hours of light. One days exposure to the sun will provide a full two hours of light. The N100 solar powered lightbulb uses five LEDs and a nickel metal hydride battery with a life of approximately 2 years before it needs to be replaced.
The Nokero N100 is available to buy in bulk from as little as $6 or you can purchase them individually for $15 each.
Designed specifically for use in developing nations where continual electricity is a mere pipe dream, this bulb is housed in an ultra-rugged, rainproof enclosure that can provide around four hours of light when fully charged; if you leave it in the sun all day, it'll harness enough juice to provide illumination for around two hours.
The unit itself is constructed from impact resistant plastic and includes a foursome of solar panels, five LEDs and a replaceable, nickel metal hydride battery that's said to last two years. The company informed us that these will run you around $15 if purchased one at a time, though the goal is to sell 'em in bulk for around $6 apiece and have them delivered to rural parts of India, Africa and possibly District 9.
