Design for Waka Waka Solar LED light
maandag 4 juni 2012
WakaWaka is a highly efficient solar-powered LED lamp. Dutch tech firm Intivation’s patented SunBoost Gen3 chip ensures a greater efficiency than any other solar lamp in the same price class. Efficiency is up to 200 % greater than regular solar lamps, especially on overcast days or during the rainy season. With less than one day of sunlight, the WakaWaka can provide 16 hours of reading light – unprecedented for a lamp that costs under USD 10 to manufacture. Designed and manufactured according to UNFCCC requirements, the WakaWaka is also eligible for CDM carbon credits. us.waka-waka.com
