Multitasking Solar Lanterns

The Low-Cost ‘Luci Solar Light’ is the Ultimate Earth Day Lantern

— April 30, 2014 — Eco
Earth Day lantern parades and gatherings are one of the most popular ways to celebrate responsible energy consumption and eco-awareness; few lanterns on the market better exemplify this spirit than the Luci Solar Light. The Luci was developed by New York City-based MPOWERD Inc., which manufactures clean energy products.

This one-of-a-kind inflatable solar lamp fuses the functions of task lights, flash lights and diffused lanterns. It can provide up to 12 hours of lighting over an impressive range of 15 square feet.

The Luci is designed to be completely independent of power grids, and is an ideal solution when light is inaccessible or unaffordable. It is a clean, low-cost sustainable energy solution that is compact, lightweight and durable in extreme weather conditions.

Buyers of the Luci Solar Light won’t merely be getting their hands on the ideal Earth Day lantern; their contributions will help support the work of the Solar Justice Movement, which aims to provide the gift of light to communities around the world.


Trend Themes
1. Multifunctional Lighting - The fusion of various lighting functions into one device presents an opportunity for companies to develop more efficient and convenient lighting solutions.
2. Off-grid Lighting - The demand for sustainable lighting solutions that function independently of power grids creates an opportunity for businesses to develop and market products that address this need.
3. Clean Energy Products - Growing interest in sustainable energy sources presents an opportunity for companies to invest in the development and manufacturing of clean energy products like solar-powered devices.
Industry Implications
1. Outdoor Recreation - The multifunctional and durable design of the Luci Solar Light appeals to the outdoor recreation industry, providing an opportunity for companies to develop products that cater to this market.
2. Humanitarian Aid - The off-grid capabilities and low cost of the Luci Solar Light makes it an ideal solution for humanitarian aid organizations addressing the lighting needs of communities in remote or underprivileged areas.
3. Home Improvement - The trend towards sustainable living and energy-efficient homes presents an opportunity for companies to develop lighting products that can run off the grid, like the Luci Solar Light.
