Solar Lamps

The solar lamps in this section cover a spectrum of types and are suited to a variety of applications. All have solar panels available, which are attached or separate on a wire, depending on the models. Some have optional larger panels, or battery packs. LEDs and CFL bulbs are found with different lamps. Some (the Edulight family) we make ourselves. Others, we buy and sell, with inspection of the products and qualification of the suppliers being part of the due diligence that we perform as an importer and distributor.

Edulight Family of Solar Lamps

These lamps are based upon a few common elements:

  • LED bulbs (12 Volt, 1 Watt, 18 LED, 50 degree, 6500K, E27 Base, accepts reverse voltage), or
  • Low power fluorescent bulb (CFL , CCFL at 3 Watts, 12 Volts)
  • Welded battery packs (2 packs of 5 AA cells for convenience, welded and shrinkwrapped)-- 800 mAh to 2500 mAh NiMH at 12 V total
  • Solar panel (polycrystalline 1 W and 3 W panels, with 65 mA to 200 mA output at ~ 17 V)
  • Lamp housing, including protective circuitry, switch and charging port

With lamp bodies available in five colours, solar panels in two sizes and battery packs of two sizes, and LED, CFL, and CCFL bulbs, the LED family of solar desk, wall, and table lamps can be assembled in a wide range of configurations. We will prepare any requested configuration, and maintain a modest inventory of popular lamps. Larger orders require time to prepare, and it is possible to ship parts for final configurational assembly at destination.
