Solar Lamp For Developing World Doubles As Phone Charger
This affordable and eco-friendly lighting solution is small enough to fit on a bottle and therefore more versatile for the global south.
WAKAWAKA is a solar LED lighting project that is currently being crowd-funded on Kickstarter. The project aims to change the lives of 1.5 billion people who earn less than $2 a day. These consumers living in impoverishment are in critical need for a safer and more affordable lighting option. The WAKAWAKA is designed by Studio Kalkwijk to be compact, portable and can be easily attached to the top of plastic bottles.
In addition to providing bright ambient lighting, the WAKAWAKA comes with a battery holder where users can charge their mobile phone by docking the battery into the slot.
