There’s something gracefully elegant about this new Solar 7 Light Bulb product, but we can’t quite put our finger on it. It might be something to do with the fact that it looks almost, but not quite, like a conventional filament light bulb if you squint at it properly with one eye half closed.
Or it could be just the fact that you literally hang it out to re-charge, like you would do a row of washed socks. Anyway, whatever the reason, we’re going to give it a thumbs up for design props, and because anything that features African school children reading by solar light has a nice flavor.
The product itself looks fairly straightforward. A six LED lamp, with twin hi and lo modes and a 500mAh internal rechargeable battery. A charge time of 8 hours and 3 hours usage time on hi mode, and 12 hours on lo. You can pick one up for $18.
