Solar lighting has really taken off and more options are hitting the market, but unfortunately, a lot of them are still pretty expensive. Well, IKEA has come to the rescue with a new line of solar lighting that is pretty, functional and, best of all, IKEA-priced.
Most of the lights are meant for outdoor use, but a couple of the options, like the desk lamp featured in the picture above, are suited for indoors. All of the nine lighting options feature rechargable batteries that can be juiced up from nine to twelve hours of sunlight. The lights are, of course, LEDs. You can click here to look at the available designs. All of the solar lights are available in stores, but not online.
While these lights are not ground-breaking, I'm still very excited by the fact that they're being sold in a mass-market environment. The more stores that carry affordable, good-looking pieces like these, the more people who will have them in their homes, using solar energy instead of electricity!
