The K-Light is an innovative, eco-friendly solar-powered lantern / torch
, designed to stand up to the harshest environments and perfectly suited for travelling or emergencies.
Approximately the size and weight of a can of soda, the combination of its solar-charging battery and bright, energy-efficient and long-lasting LEDs makes for an environmentally friendly and economical travel and camping light. Small, lightweight, rugged and highly water resistant, the K-Light is perfect for outdoor activities such as camping, boating and hiking.
The K-Light is ideal as an emergency light, too. It can function as either a lantern or a torch through a simple modification (displayed on picture):
The K-Light can be powered anywhere — in any situation. A small solar panel is included. Just place it in the sun or let it hang from your backpack, connect it to the lamp and the sun charges the internal battery.
For every hour of charge, the K-Light will provide on average two hours of light runtime on the low (half-light) setting and one hour on the high (full-light) setting. A full charge (10 hours of direct sunlight) should provide up to 20 hours of light runtime.Product Features:

How long will the K-light last on a single charge?
For every hour of charge, the K-Light will provide on average two hours of light runtime on the low (half-light) setting and one hour on the high (full-light) setting. A full charge (10 hours of direct sunlight) should provide up to 20 hours of light runtime.
What happens if the K-Light or the solar panel gets wet?
Both the K-Light and the solar panel are designed to be water resistant, and can withstand rain, snow and other elements.
Can I charge the K-Light indoors?
Yes, the K-Light can be charged indoors with the panel near a well-lit window. This can reduce the rate of charge by 50% or more. Outdoor exposure to direct, natural sunlight will provide the best charge. While florescent lighting may provide a slight, ancillary charge to the K-Light, it is not an efficient or reliable means of charging, and is not recommended.
Will the K-Light charge on a cloudy day?
Yes, the K-Light will charge in most weather conditions, but will charge most efficiently in full, direct sunlight.
Once the K-Light is fully charged, how long will it hold its charge when stored before I must charge it again?
With a full charge, the K-Light can be stored for several months (2-3). If stored beyond this time frame, we recommend you recharge the K-Light prior to use and to ensure it is ready as an emergency power source.
How long will the K-Light last?
The LEDs, used in place of bulbs, have a lifespan of 50,000 hours of light. The K-Light’s durable plastic exterior is designed to withstand a lifetime of use. The nickel metal hydride battery can be re-charged approximately 3,000 times. When used as a recreational and/or emergency light source, the K-Light is essentially a lifetime light.
How does the K-Light save me money?
While both flashlights and propane lanterns may cost less initially, they both require expensive replacement batteries or fuel. After the K-Light’s one-time purchase price, it needs only free, readily available energy—direct sunlight.
How is the K-Light better for the environment?
The K-Light is powered from a “green source” of energy—natural light. And unlike conventional flashlights or gas-fueled lanterns, there is no need to use pollution-causing fuels (such as kerosene or propane) or disposable batteries.
