While some people adamantly attest for their disdain towards IKEA products for whatever reason, I love them.  I’m always on a budget and still have IKEA stuff from almost 10 years ago.  New to their collection comes the SOLIG Solar Office Lamps.

Provided they are in a well lit area during the day, the lamp stores daylight in its solar cell for use of its LED lighting during the evening hours.  Sounds like a steal for only $20 a piece!  Available now at the IKEA website or warehouse near you.

Key features:

  • Runs on solar cells that transform sunlight into electricity; helps you save energy and reduce your environmental footprint.
  • Solar cells transform sunlight into electrical energy – requires no electrical connections.
  • Uses LEDs, which consume approx. 70% less energy and last 20 times longer than incandescent bulbs.

Fun tidbits:

  • Position the product so the solar cell panel on top is well exposed to sunlight.
  • Approved for use as outdoor lighting, IP 44.
  • 3 rechargeable AA 1.2V batteries for solar cell driven products are included.
  • Color temperature; warm white (Kelvin 3000).
  • Integrated light source.
  • LED life time approx. 20,000 hours.
  • When the battery is fully charged, the product will light at full power for aprox. 3 hours.
  • Recharging time is 8 hours in direct sunlight.
