Light, Time & Us
This rather innovative light features an hourglass design that contains solar panels on one end and a series of bright LED lights on the other. The solar panels absorb the sun’s rays and convert the same into electricity that is stored in a NiMh battery. The battery can be used to power at least 12 LED bulbs for over 8 hours. All you need to do is flip over the light so that the side having the solar panels faces downwards. A resistor on this side then switches on the LED lights automatically.
Standard electrical sockets product an output of 120V which makes it essential for you to use a converter that would transform this power into a 5V input required for most digital devices. Designed specifically for digital technology, the power plug socket enables you to plug your digital gadgets directly into it without a converter cable.

This doodad design can harness both hydro and wind energy to power your gadgets while traveling. You can either drop it into flowing water to harness the hydro power, or stick it on the ground to harness wind power. The device can generate over 12V of power that can be used to charge lights or cellphones while camping.
