Daily Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products has partnered with 2 social entrepreneurs to launch Waka Waka, a solar lamp that can provide safe and reliable light to developing countries without electricity.
Camille Van Gestel and Maurits Groen are on a mission to bring light to people who need it. The two cofounders of Off-Grid Solutions created the Waka Waka light, a lightweight, rechargeable solar lamp that can provide 8-80 hours of light, depending on the brightness settings you choose.
For people who have no access to the electrical grid, the Waka Waka light is a safe, affordable alternative to using kerosene lamps, which pose fire risks and cause health problems. It’s also ideal for people who travel off the grid or choose to live an unplugged lifestyle. At home, it’s a practical solution for camping, emergency preparedness, and everyday outdoor activities.
In strong sunlight, the Waka Waka light takes about 4-5 hours to fully charge. The rugged solar LED lamp has four lighting modes -- super bright torch, bright ambient light, bright reading light, and night safety light -- plus an SOS beacon mode for emergencies. A cutout in the recycled plastic housing fits over the top of a bottle to create a lamp, and the Waka Waka can put out enough light for everyone around a table to read.
Waka Waka is special because of its state-of-the-art solar technology -- and its social mission. For every light purchased, another is subsidized in places where electric power isn’t an option. With safe, low-cost light, more families will be able to read, study, work and socialize after the sun sets.
