Carmanah Marine Lantern a First

The M650 solar LED marine lantern, a first of its kind, automatically adjusts to fit its location with built in "intelligent deployment." Carmanah Technology's light provides visibility of up to 4 nautical miles for about 5 years, but it is the rigorous testing that it had to go through that makes it stand out from other lamps. Check out the video from the Canadian company as the lantern goes through being beaten, thrown against walls and subjected to fire hoses and electrical surges.

Solar LEDs Light Up With Flexibility

Solarpost.jpg

Solar Vision Pole has a different attitude towards off-grid lighting. Instead of needing bracing for wind like ordinary lamps, the pole itself is wrapped up with a flexible panel. Four gel batteries located in its base charge an LED light that can produce up to 50W of light after 6 hours of charging. The result is a lamp that will run all night. While $5,000 seems like a high price, we can think of some college campuses and parking lots that could benefit from the poles.
