About Solar Lanterns

This waterproof solar lantern takes the sun jar (solar bottle) concept to a much higher level.  This stunning model is extremely bright putting out roughly four times the amount of light a sun jar could.  This awesome lighting ability is thanks to the three super bright LED’s and diffused silicone material which disperses this light beautifully. The solar lantern has dual light output power settings, high and low. It also features a flashing function which could be useful for signalling in an emergency situation.

When on high power mode it will provide light for up to 5 hours. When it’s on low power mode it will provide light for up to 10 hours.

This solar lantern is waterproof, you can store keys and mobile phones in it while camping or boating. It has IP66 waterproof rating.

We are motivated to bring solar power to South Africa by selling a variety of stunning solar powered LED lights.  While these are practical we believe they should also be beautiful.  South Africa will be experiencing power outages for years to come. We believe that our inflatable solar lanterns are far more versatile and sustainable than torches that use disposable batteries.  The inflatable solar lanterns are safer and brighter than candles and paraffin lanterns.

The inflatable solar lanterns are both waterproof and shatterproof, with a built-in rechargeable battery.  Our inflatable solar lantern can hold a charge for up to 12 hours staying bright all night. The inflatable solar lantern is ideal for boating, hiking, camping and emergency breakdowns.

The inflatable solar lanterns also make stunning décor items, place them on a table at wedding or hang them form the trees or under a patio. Watch the magic come to life. The solar lanterns are ready for any weather at any time or in any place.

About Inflatable Solar lanterns

How do they work?

The inflatable solar lanterns have three main components that make it  work:

  1. The solar panel that captures photons from sunlight or incandescent light
  2. A rechargeable internal lithium battery that stores power
  3. 10 LED bulbs that produce light when needed

The inflatable solar lantern does not require any additional parts, since her unit contains solar PV cells, a battery, and LED lights all in one.

The inflatable solar lanterns will charge fully in 8 hours when facing sunlight.  These lanterns can even charge in cloudy weather or under incandescent light. To charge inflatable solar lanterns in incandescent light, place the solar panel close to the light bulb – but not so close that it becomes hot. It will take longer than 8 hours to charge under incandescent light.  Coming soon, watch this space!
