Product Description

These are wonderful little lights, entirely powered by the sun and loved by children they come with an integral dimmer switch with glow in the dark button! These make wonderful presents.

Designed by Icelandic/Danish artist Olafur Eliasson and innovator Frederik Ottesen these lights are a practical and fun way of supplying light wherever you need it. Requiring just five hours of sunlight to supply four hours of bright light, or 50 hours of soft light, these little lights will last for years, are virtually indestructible and can be carried around by your little ones using the safety strap. Of course it works just as well for adults as a reading light (no need to wake up your partner now with the too bright bedside lamp). 

Whilst we are not perhaps the sunniest nation on the planet this light has been tested in mid-Wales where in June it supplied enough light each night to cook by with lots left over for reading and playing cards later on. As with many solar lights in the UK during the winter months it is helpful to let the lamp trickle charge to full capacity before you go away although direct sun in winter charges quite quickly too.
