Artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen developed Little Sun Original to bring clean, affordable light to the 1.1 billion people worldwide living without electricity in ‘off-grid’ areas.
The iconic high-quality portable solar lamp is the perfect introduction to personal solar-powered light – it’s great for camping, festivals, at the beach, or for brightening your home, garden, or balcony. Kids love the lamp – as a nightlight or for playtime – which makes it easy to teach them about sustainable living.
Featuring a dimmer, you can easily adjust the brightness of the lamp to what you need. Five hours of charging in the sun produce more than 50 hours of light at the dimmest setting or 5 hours at the brightest setting.
Charging & Use: To charge, place the Little Sun lamp in the sun with its solar panel facing upwards. Press once for bright light and twice to turn off. Hold button down to activate dimmer function.
