LuminAID provides cheap, solar-powered light when you need it

In disaster areas, finding a source of light can be something of an issue. Usually there isn’t any source of electricity, unless it is a small generator, which is usually dedicated to a medical shelter of some sort. Individuals are forced to rely on small fires, flashlights, or kerosine lamps. None of these are particularly good choices, as they all require fuel of some sort. However, if this LuminAID light gets the necessary funding, there may be a much better option.

The LuminAID is basically an inflatable bag with solar powered LEDs inside. You need only charge the lamp for 4-6 hours in the sun, then inflate the bag and switch it on. You’ll get around 4 hours of light on high, and around 6 hours on low. Since the electronics are contained within the bag, the device is completely waterproof. The best part about this is that for every one you order at $25, another will be sent to an area in need.
