The Nokero N200 – a solar light bulb making a real difference

Nokero N200 1

Much of the developing world uses kerosene for indoor lighting. As it’s both expensive and prone to starting fires, the Nokero N200 is a welcome alternative.

The Nokero N200 is actually a solar-powered lamp shaped like a traditional incandescent light bulb. Considered to be 60% brighter than it’s predecessor, the Nokero N100, this fun shaped lamp -whose recharagable battery is powered by 4 LED’s – will last up to six hours when set at normal mode. Its “turbo task” setting is even brighter but lasts only 2.5 hours on a single charge. It’s simple rotatable design allows it to be aimed in the direction of the sun for chargning.

All this makes it an extremely useful lighting alternative in third world countries where firewood is scarce and electricity isn’t available.

This lamp is designed to be rainproof, with its rubber-sealed switch and tight fitted casings. And it’s built to be tough too, making it a great fit for camping. Affordably priced at around $15, with a life expectancy of around 5 years, sounds like this is a handy gadget to have around.
