Nokero will be showcased this year as Seoul Semiconductor’s solar product partner at LightFair International 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Together, the two companies demonstrate that LEDs do not just provide lighting, but can actually change the world. Nokero’s solar light bulbs use Seoul Semiconductor LEDs to provide light for the 1.3 billion people without access to electricity.
Nokero’s CEO, Steve Katsaros, says: “The ultra-efficient Seoul mid-power 5630 LED is a game-changer for our solar light bulb. Every 5% of improved efficacy means either 5% longer run time or a 5% increase in brightness. I commend our partners at Seoul Semiconductor for bringing the world's best LEDs to the market, which in turn enable products like the Nokero solar light bulbs to change lives at the base of the economic pyramid."
Nokero chose to use Seoul Semiconductor’s 5630c LEDs (STW8Q14C) due to their affordability and high efficacy. In many scenarios, ranging from outdoor recreation to third world development, Seoul Semiconductor’s LEDs provide maximum brightness for Nokero’s solar lights. Inspired by the familiar shape and function of the light bulb, Nokero’s patented designs emphasize ease of use and efficient energy conversion with solar panels and powerful LEDs.
“Nokero has been a great customer of ours to partner with and we’re excited to showcase their new N182 solar light bulb at LightFair 2014 next week,” says Megan Silkman Smith, North America Marketing Representative from Seoul Semiconductor. “Their eco-friendly solar lamp designs continue to impress us, while their mission as a company is impressive and quite inspiring. As an LED manufacturer, it’s been a fulfilling experience to see the results of a single LED (or one solar lamp) make such an impact in numerous homes and communities of developing countries.”
Nokero and Seoul Semiconductor are excited to come together at LightFair this year offering the new N182 solar lamp to Seoul Semiconductor booth visitors. Visitors to LightFair should be sure to stop by the Seoul Semiconductor Booth (#5830) to receive a sample Nokero light, free of charge.
Nokero International Ltd. lights the way to a better quality of life and economic opportunity for those without electricity. Nokero’s name originates from the phrase ‘No Kerosene’ – evoking its mission to replace this harmful and polluting fuel with safer, environmentally friendly solar light solutions. Founded in 2010 by inventor and CEO Steve Katsaros, Nokero is a privately held company headquartered in Denver, Colorado, USA with offices in Hong Kong and Kenya. Today, Nokero has distributed over 1,000,000 solar light bulbs to more than 120 countries.
