Portable solar power light solutions are the way to go, especially for people living in areas without a grid connection. That’s why we love Luci, the solar light.
Created by Micro Power Design, a self-proclaimed “technology incubator, accelerator and manufacturer providing lifestyle innovations to those who need it most”, Luci is a low cost, lighting solution that offer durability and longevity. Besides its application in off-the-grid zones, it’s also great for emergency situations and disasters.
We have covered other solar lights before, so what makes Luci different? According to Micro Power design, Luci is unique because it combines the functions of a task light, flash light and diffused lantern. It weighs only 4.5 ounces making it compact, lightweight and collapsible for travel, is durable and reliable in extreme weather conditions and can easily be attached to a wall or ceiling.
