IKEA Launches Solar Lighting Line

Solar lighting has really taken off and buy tramadol 180 cod 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 http://www.roli-guggers.de/when-will-viagra-be-available-as-a-generic 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 order viagra now 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!

Wow, I'm really excited to hear this news too! It's definitely a small step, but a step in the right direction nonetheless. I'm very excited to start seeing more companies take the hint and start selling affordable, efficient solar products.

Interesting, indeed!
I just recently bought a Sun Jar myself, and though my wife was initially sceptical, it's now an essential part of our bedtime-routine to take it from the window sill, activate it and carry its candle-like light into the canada levitra prescription bedroom to viagra online usa use as a cozy night-light.

One thing having a solar-powered gadget certainly does is give you an object to remind you of renewable energy sources and general green issues. In a narrative, it helps to have an object to center the actions of the characters around. An object of desire, power or menace. Whatever. Solar powered desk lamps are a great type of object to center your eco-narrative around, if you're having trouble focusing on it.

This makes me wonder, though... The Sun Jar is 20 GBPs, and gives couple of nights at best of a weak-candle-like light if charged in direct sunlight for a day. Either the SJ is grossly overpriced (which I admit is price of cialis in canada very likely), or the IKEA lamps are really really weak. I also have an LED lamp (mains powered) with 21 bulbs in it. I would never use it as a study lamp. These ones look like they have 6-12 bulbs max...

Then again, IKEA usually makes a LOT of whatever they make, so they can afford to make them quite a bit cheaper than smaller sellers like the Sun Jar people. I'd love to hear from anyone who gets the IKEA lamps themselves.

Good news indeed. The lamps in the image look like they could provide top up power for themselves with the bulbs facing the solar panel. That is if solar panels react to artificial light. Not sure.
If it is the legal buy ultram online case, imagine a lamp with solar panels around the bulb. That'd be cool.

give me more of levitra drugs for sale online this

Wonderful. So many wonderful ideas out there seem like they're 100 years away. I really get most excited about options that can be done right away. Okay, so changing light bulbs is cool but we need more. Please, put more low cost items on the shelves of Wal-mart and Home Depot that can collectively make a difference. By the way, I wonder where one can purchase a low-budget exercise bicycle dynamo to recharge batteries, plug a printer into etc....?

seen them for real
written by Chris, March 10, 2009
These have been around IKEA's here in the Netherlands for a while. I've seen them and tried them in the store, and although I agree with all the above, I don't want one because: they're fitted with those ugly blueish LEDs, which are indeed quite weak. Not cosy or anything, and as you may have experienced yourself, they somehow do not create a type of light you can actually DO anything by.

Still, good steps, keep more coming up. What I found more interesting at IKEA, is that they sell kits of LED strips! Both in the blueish white and in multicolor versions (which you can set to buy levitra pill any color mix).

So convenient

I spotted this lamp on a recent visit to the College Park, MD IKEA and had to have it. Its portable, great design and just try! cialis pill holds about 6 hrs worth of moderate light [desk or pre-bed reading]. Its super handy to be able to pop out the panel to recharge. I'm a big fan!

These lamps look great - and they also show that there is more and more interest in using LEDs for interior lighting purposes, which is a really positive development.

If it is the case, imagine a lamp with solar panels around the bulb. That'd be cool.

And pointless, thermodynamically-speaking. You loose energy every time you change the form of energy, so converting electricity -> light -> electricity is inefficient. (If you didn't loose energy doing this, you could build a perpetual motion machine.) It's much better to just hook up to http://www.umlauf.de/cheap-viagra-no-prescription the wires that power the bulb and get your Work done.

I'm not saying that a device powered by solar cells powered by artificial light isn't useful, though. There are cases where this would make a lot of sense -- like, for instance, calculators, watches, cell phones, mp3 players, or anything else where the levitra on line wires impede the function of the device. And a desk-lamp might fit into this category, too, if your desk happens to be located away from an outlet -- or in a place where the sun will hit the light during the day.

But combining a light-bulb and solar panels is click here levitra cost like leaving the refrigerator door open -- you've just turned a useful device into a very-complicated heater.

That said, a light like this could still find its way to my night-stand. The cords make more things than necessary go flying whenever I bump the light, and running 120V extension cords around the bed feels like a fire-hazard, even if it's probably less dangerous than a chemical battery...

It is great to see solar power on the shelves of a major retailer. Even a desk lamp can get people fascinated with the fact that sunlight is being turned into electricity.
My only complaint: I was hoping for more exotic Ikea-like names for their solar lights (After all, I feel so sophisticated on my Sultan Fjordgard mattress).

SUNNAN
written by Calvin, March 11, 2009
I can't believe I am the first person to post a message here that actually has one of these lights! I also can't believe that the www.grantontrailers.com article above doesn't even give the name of cheapest levitra uk the lamp. It is called SUNNAN and it is GREAT!!!
I have 2 of them (one on each side of the bed). They are the 'white' LEDs refered to above and there are 12 LED bulbs inside as someone above mentioned. The light however, is perfect for reading. LED light is directional, which means it shines in one direction verses all directions like an incandescent bulb. This is perfect for reading because all the light shines directly on cialis online switzerland what you are reading with very little waisted light eluminating the room, which can be annoying to someone else in bed.
As for the brightness, the SUNNAN has a lense that focuses the light even more and it is pleanty to generic cialis canada read by.
If solar is just not your thing, I also have a JANSJO light I bought at IKEA. It is a plug in LED and is very bright.

written by litteuldav, March 11, 2009

Come on power outages ! I'm waiting for you :)

Light Power Cell System
written by Bo, March 12, 2009
Yeah it would be cool to have a light with solar cells. It could charge the cialis online cheap lights batteries and not need the sun.

I have my doubts
written by Brad, March 14, 2009
I checked out the IKEA website. For the lamps pictured in the article (The "SUNNAN") the website says: "Light diodes are not replaceable; diode life approx. 50,000 hours."

In other words, this is a disposable lamp! I doubt it's more environmentally friendly to throw out a solar lamp every 50,000 hours, than it is to change the CFL in your regular lamp every 10,000 hours.

Greewashing indeed. We've been had.

Environmentaly Friendly
written by Calvin, March 20, 2009
First of all CFL's contain Mercury and can not be thrown away, they must be disposed of as hazerdous waist or recycled (by the way, IKEA recycles CFLs...not many palces do). So it is actually more environmentaly friendly to through away an LED light than any CFL.

50,000 hours
written by Calvin, March 20, 2009
And another thing..... :) ... if you used this (or any LED) for 4 hours a night, EVERY night, it would still last 34 years.....not bad for a light that has used NO electricity and china viagra only costs $20.

Also, just so everyone know, these lights uses rechargeable batteries that can be changed when they no longer hold a full charge. IKEA also sells teh rechargeable batteries and they are a MUCH better deal than most palces.

About the demo lights
written by J, April 03, 2009
The SUNNAN lamps which are displayed in stores are usually depleted by the time you get to them; the very dim output that you see is from light energy gathered from sitting under the store lights. In most stores, the only place to charge the lamps without having them stolen or lost is on the roof of the store, which makes recharging them everyday impractical.

To get a better gauge of the potential brightness of the lamp, remove one from the package (they're in plastic pouches) and turn it on, as they're charged right before they ship. Then, of course, repackage it.

I used to buy viagra online pharmacy work for one of the main lamp suppliers to IKEA and Homebase. You wouldn't believe the amount of order cheap generic tramadol online returns we got! Customers don't want the lamp, they take it back to the shop. The shop returns it to their supplier. The supplier has to take the cost hit...
