As the designer of UVonion, Yun Li says, “Onion is sterilization in nature. UVonion, is solar ultraviolet sterilization at home.”

The onion-shaped UVonion is a solar ultraviolet lamp that converts solar energy into electrical energy using solar cells and in turn produces UV light powered by ultraviolet LEDs. Its eco-friendly nature makes UVonion healthy and a good way to save electricity.

Like the layered look of an onion, UVonion has a simple and aesthetic design that also produces green energy and brings sun smelt to the home.
