Little Sun Portable Solar Light

Danish-Icelandic artist Artist Olafur Eliasson and Danish engineer Frederik Ottesen developed Little Sun to bring clean, affordable light to the 1.1 billion people worldwide living without electricity in 'off-grid' areas. 

The high-quality portable solar lamp is great for camping, festivals, at the beach, or for brightening your home, garden, or balcony.

Featuring a dimmer, you can adjust the brightness of the lamp to what you need. 5 hours of charging in the sun produces over 50 hours of light at the dimmest setting or 4 hours at the brightest.
