O’Sun Nomad Solar Lamp: A Jug Full of Light
March 26th, 2012
This new lamp was created by the Belgian designer Alain Gilles for O’Sun, and it was specifically made to address the needs of families living in parts of the world that don’t have access to electricity. In many parts of the world, kerosene lamps are used widely, but they often cause deadly accidents. The Nomad lamp is a portable rechargeable device, that’s easy to operate and use, and is completely safe.
Using the included solar panel, once fully charged up, the Nomad lamp will provide 6 hours of light at full intensity. The lamp only has one button and can be placed almost anywhere since it’s designed to be resistant to shocks and falls. The luminous globe is protected by a silicone disk, further enhancing its usefulness.
The lamp can also be hung almost anywhere and can also serve as a good camping light. There are 12 LEDs inside of it, which should provide plenty of illumination. In addition to solar power, it can also be juiced up conventionally, or from a car’s cigarette lighter. There’s also an attachment to charge up mobile phones.
