  • Waka Waka solar powered lamp and charger

    The Waka Waka solar powered lamp and charger both charges your devices and works as a lamp powered by the sun. 

    The manufacturers say that one a single charge -- through a days' worth of sunlight -- the lamp will function for up to 40 hours. You can alter the amount of brightness and play around with different settings, and when the gadget gets low on energy, 4 LED lights will tell you. 

    The solar cell, a Sunpower model, is said to perform at an efficiency rate of 22 percent. 

    The product is available in black or yellow.
