Solar-Powered LED Lantern Provides Light For Up To 24 Hours
30-JUN-03

The SolarLED Lantern uses sunlight to power a high-intensity LED lamp providing light for up to 24 hours on a fully charged battery - four times longer than a compact fluorescent lamp. The SolarLED Lantern features a built-in handle, a rechargeable battery, a photovoltaic solar panel, and a 100,000-hour LED cluster lamp. The linear-configured LED lamp has 36 White 1206 SMT LEDs (18 per side in two columns of nine) on a double-sided PCB. A nickel metal hydride battery, located within the base of the lantern, features memory-free recharging and a discharge circuit to prevent battery damage from excessive recharging. The lightweight, flexible and compact solar panel connects to the lantern by a 51?2 -foot cable, allowing the panel to be positioned where it will receive maximum light. The SolarLED Lantern (battery installed) with the solar panel weighs 2.06 lbs. (934.4g). It is 8.9” (226mm) in height. The solar panel measures 8.25”W x 11.25”L (210mm x 287mm). A rugged ABS plastic body makes the lantern resistant to dents, scratches and foul weather. Operating the SolarLED Lantern is clean and easy. Simply plug the solar panel into the lantern and set the panel in a sunlit area to charge the battery. Under bright sunlight, a dead battery takes 13 hours to fully charge. Recharging time varies with atmospheric and environmental conditions. Users can expect more than 500 charges before battery replacement is necessary.
