Solight Design Announces Launch of The QWNN Solar Lantern With USB...
The QWNN's patent pending, design features 28 white LEDs that produce an amazing spectrum of light in 6 brightness settings (45 lumens; 90 lumens; 160 lumens; 240 lumens; 320 lumens; blinking). The QWNN flat packs down to just 0.75 inches thick and with it's origami influenced, quick one-action fold conveniently opens the QWNN so it can be positioned at different angles to maintain optimum sun exposure or to direct the light for specific use. The form and function design includes 2 magnets and heavy duty elastic handles that allow it to be secured to a variety of surfaces.
The portable lantern incorporates 2 large solar panels to maximize harnessing the sun's energy quickly and efficiently. The unit's 4000 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery charges in 8-12 hours of sunlight depending on climate conditions and provides up to 44 hours of light or can charge 2 smart phones, and other USB compatible devices.
The QWNN is made from heavy-duty military grade sailcloth that is UV coated, waterproof and tearproof to withstand outdoor conditions and made of recyclable materials that are non toxic and PVC-free.
"Our goal at Solight Design is to design and manufacture beautifully architected, solar solutions that people will want in their homes and that will help eradicate pollution, poverty and excessive energy consumption," said Alice Chun, CEO of Solight Design. "We believe the QWNN will revolutionize the way we light and power our world."
Co-founders, Alice Min Soo Chun and Stacy Kelly founded Solight Design as a For-Purpose organization to deliver lighting to underserved regions around the world. Alice Chun invented the SolarPuff, in response to the 2010 Haiti earthquake and, since its introduction, Solight Design has delivered 300,000 SolarPuff lights to the most vulnerable communities through partnerships with global non-profit organizations such as Clinton Foundation, Operation Blessings, United Way and the United Nations.
Last fall, Solight Design was recognized by President Bill Clinton as part of The Clinton Global Initiative Action Network on Post Disaster Recovery for their work with San Juan mayor, Yulin Cruz and the relief efforts after Hurricane Maria. Solight Design has also recently been awarded the prestigious USPTO Patents for Humanity Award that recognizes the power of innovation to help the less fortunate around the globe.
"As a humanitarian worker, the Solight Design products have enormous logistical and transportation advantages because they are so compact and they provide a free source of light…and now electricity too," said Bill Horan, newly retired president of Operation Blessing International, which distributed Solight units in Puerto Rico. "Having access to lighting in a disaster zone or vulnerable community increases safety exponentially, and the Solight units have the added benefits of being compact and environmentally-friendly."
The QWNN is currently being offered by an Indiegogo campaign and is expected to be available for sale at retail outlets in spring 2019. For each QWNN sold, Solight Design will donate one solar lantern to a child in need through the company's NGO partners working in Puerto Rico, Senegal, Ghana, Dominica, and in Syrian refugee camps.
