The Firefly Mobile is a cutie with easy-to-use combined phone charging and light giving functions. It has won awards and received the 2012 Outstanding Product Award from Lighting Global, a joint IFC and World Bank program that aims to boost the off-grid lighting market and provide quality assurance to distributors and customers.
It has a nice and bright task light with three brightness settings. The light from the lamp is 8 times brighter than a kerosene lamp – one day of charging gives you 3.6 hours of light on its high setting, 14 hours on medium setting and 50 hours of light on low setting. With a battery made of high performance lithium iron phosphate it will last for up to 5 years before it needs replacing. The Firefly Mobile Lamp has charging pins for most kinds of phones and can charge a 700mAh battery in 3 hours of sunshine.
A 12 month manufacturer’s guarantee clinches the deal for me.
The Firefly Mobile solar lamp and solar charger utilizes 10 super bright SMD LEDs with a broad angle beam to provide an even spread of light throughout a room, or if focused on a desk – a very brightFirefly 12 Mobile reading light.
