First idea of creating the Nomad solar lamp was to meet the needs of families in developing countries. The simple solar lamp design includes a single button for three different lighting settings, is protected by a silicon disk to be placed on the ground and offers up to 6 hours of full light or 35 hours at 15 percent output. The Nomad solar lamp can easily be suspended above a table or to be used like a classic lantern.
The eco gadget has a separate solar charger that can be very easy affixed on the walls or in other places under the sunlight and can be also charged with a USB plug for cloudy days or office use.
The solar lamp use LED technology, eco friendly materials and is powered by a lithium ion battery. If you think to buy in one, it will be available for the retail market from September 2012 at an estimated cost of €95 (US$125).
The O-Sun team intend to distribute the solar lamp to developing countries with help of NGO’s, government support and micro-credit organizations at a reduce price.
