The 'WakaWaka' Solar Lamp Provides a Day of Light on a Single Charge

The ‘WakaWaka’ solar lamp is a Kickstarter lamp that recently went from concept to reality thanks to socially conscious donors. WakaWaka is designed to be easily mounted and provide long-lasting light. The tiny lamp can be affixed to a soda bottle and can last up to 16 hours on a full battery.

The WakaWaka solar lamp takes one day to fully charge and can also provide power for 80 percent of the world’s mobile phones, except the iPhone. The WakaWakak solar lamp was designed by Camille van Gestel, founder of Off-Grid Solutions. The lamp will be priced at $10, which is rather inexpensive considering how much plug-in lamps and other solar lamps cost. The project was seeking $30,000 in funding and has already received $34,000. For each $125 received, three lamps were donated to school children and teachers in Kenya.
