Nokero Lights

I've recently been hearing good things about solar products from a company called Nokero. The firm's impetus was to design an alternative to kerosene lanterns for developing countries (Nokero is short for no kerosene). Besides environmental concerns, Kerosene fumes and smoke aren't healthy; especially for children. While FreePlay and a few other businesses have long been providing wind-up, kinetic lighting devices, Nokero took a different approach and primarily went solar. Their N100 and N200 lights are LED powered and feature a replaceable, rechargeable AA battery (sustainable). They even look like conventional incandescent light bulbs (familiar). A durable, water-resistant design coupled with an affordable price makes these lights worth considering for office back-ups or primary lighting in austere environments.
