Unveiled at CES 2013, Luci is just the perfect solar lantern targeted at travelers and disaster survivors who seriously need a portable and reliable lighting solution to illuminate their way. Developed by a New York City startup Mpowerd, Luci offers 6-12 hours of light when charged for six hours under direct sunlight or incandescent light. Moreover, it stores solar charge for up to three months so that users may use it anytime, anywhere they feel like.
Incorporating a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the fully inflatable solar lantern can be charged while collapsed or expanded. The lightweight, waterproof lantern further includes ten white LEDs that keep glowing at three different brightness levels. Priced at $15.99 only, the Mpowerd Luci solar lantern has a one-year lifespan.
Finally yet importantly, Mpowerd promises to empower the developing world through their solar powered, low-cost and sustainable lighting solution.
