A solar lantern is a lighting system composed of an LED lamp, solar panels, battery and charge controller. The lamp operates on electricity from batteries, charged through the use of solar photovoltaic panel. It is portable, light weight, sturdy lamp and looks like a traditional lantern.
Solar-powered household lighting can replace other light sources like candles or kerosene lamps. Solar lamps use renewable energy with infinite supply which is cheaper than standard lamps. In addition,solar lamps reduce health risk as kerosene lamps have a bad impact on human health.
Solar lamps for use in rural situations often have the capability of providing a supply of electricity for other devices, such as for charging cell phones.This is product is very helpful in villages where there is very irregular supply of power

|Extends the Working day in rural areas:
The villages are struggling with power cuts impacting their daily business. Solar lanterns can help to extend their business hours.
|Improves Health issues:
Fumes from kerosene lamps in poorly ventilated houses are a serious health problem in much of the world where electric light is unavailable.
Kerosene lamps are a serious fire hazard in the developing world, killing and maiming tens of thousands of people each year. Kerosene, diesel fuel and gasoline stored for lamps and small generators are also a safety threat, whereas solar electric light comes as the safest measure for all.
Solar electricity for the Third World is clearly the most effective energy conservation program because it conserves costly conventional power for urban areas, town market centers, and industrial and commercial uses, leaving decentralized PV-generated power to provide the lighting and basic electrical needs of the majority of the developing world’s rural populations.
Use of a solar light rather than gensets or kerosene lamps reduces the time and expense of refueling and maintenance. Kerosene lamps and diesel generators must be filled several times per day. In rural areas, purchasing and transporting of kerosene or diesel fuel is often both difficult and expensive. Diesel generators require periodic maintenance and have a short lifespan.
|Reduces local air pollution:
Use of solar electric systems decreases the amount of local air pollution. With a decrease in the amount of kerosene used for lighting, there is a corresponding reduction in the amount of local pollution produced. Solar rural electrification also decreases the amount of electricity needed from small diesel generators.
