Created by Off-Grid Solutions, the WakaWaka Lamp is a solar-powered device specifically designed to survive the extremes of Africa. Its innovative technology provides up to sixteen hours of reading light at a time, and needs only four or five hours of sun exposure for a full battery charge. Ideal for hiking, disaster preparation, camping, or as an in-home reading light, the patented technology will deliver powerful LED lighting for seven years or more. Oh, and in case you were wondering, “Waka Waka” means “shine bright” in Swahili.
