Funky lamps


I subscribe to mecho's newsletter and had to share this! These eco-friendly solar cell table lamps are the BOMB! No electricity - and the first solar-powered lamp from IKEA - in 5 funky colours. I want them all!

The lamp has a rechargeable solar cell panel which makes electrical energy from sunlight. Cool huh? Fully charged it creates enough LED light source to run for 3-4 hours. LED consumes 70% less energy. It also lasts 4 times longer than incandescent bulbs in similar lighting.

Oh - and there is no ugly cords here! So its portable indoors and out! Perfect for Australian conditions.

These sound great... IKEA you say?! Am I game enough to go with 3 children? hehe I'll have to think of a few more things I need first...like a bookshelf... Pity they don't come in purple!!!

Hey don’t know why i am writing this but i found it really useful for students. I came across this study thing which is eco friendly, eye soothing and has a battery back up of six hours also tested by one of the biggest eye specialist. Have a look :
