The new Kickstarter-funded solar-powered flexible lanterns are charming little light cubes that pack a huge impact. With its unique flatpack pop-open design and renewable energy source, the 'SolarPuff' can be used anywhere.

The patent-pending flexible lanterns are made from sustainable high performance fabric that makes them durable, pliable and waterproof. The unique design of the lanterns allows them to be folded down and packed flat for easy storage. The light cubes work by charging in the sun and the longer a user leaves the light charging, the longer each cube will provide illumination.

Not only is the SolarPuff beautifully designed, but each cube also functions as a convenient light source for those who do not have regular access to electricity. With an estimated 1.6 billion people worldwide living without reliable electricity, these solar-powered lanterns could provide a sustainable light source for those who need it most.
