Some products are being invented with one and only purpose- to be the best of the best in whatever they are supposed to be doing. Just like Bugatti built their Veyron 16.4 only so it is the world’s fastest car ever made, Nokero International made their latest LED solar light bulb– N182 only so it is the world’s cheapest and brightest out of all.
Combining the latest LED technology with highly efficient micro solar panels and new and improved circuit boards, these small and slick new lights can brighten up any place for more than five hours in the most cost-effective and affordable manner known to date.
The N182 is a joint project between Nokero and Seoul Semiconductors, the latter providing their ultra-efficient mid-power 5630 LEDs. N182 charges during the day through the 1-1/2″ micro solar panel. If exposed to direct sunlight for 6-8 hours, it could provide light for the impressive 5 hours or more. It is incredibly small and it can be used as both a hanging light and a pocket torch. It has a very high energy conversion efficiency, and most of all, it is affordable thanks to the position of the PCB and on/off switch inside the bulb.
Ever since Nokero International was established back in 2010, the founders have worked with numerous organizations, bringing light to millions in need, and it seems their mission is nowhere near accomplished completely. This is LED solar bulb is one of these technologies that hold the potential to save lives in rural areas, where on grid electricity is not an option. By being simply affordable, and extremely efficient (and very cool, of course, although I am not sure people in rural areas are much concerned about this one), N182 solar bulb makes the difference between children staying longer at school and children being uneducated, or people being treated in hospitals or not. The benefits of such technology are numerous, and this only took the great intentions and willingness to make a difference of only one company. Imagine if they were more like Nokero?
