    Let there be light! An LED designed for kids. (But adults will like it too!)

    The Nokero Ed is an all-in-one solar LED book light that provides over 15 hours of continuous light when fully charged, allowing kids to read, study, and learn by night. It’s powered by the sun (artificial light too) and a rechargeable AAA battery, Ed clips easily onto books or homework folders, or it can sit on a flat surface to light a child's workspace. Ed is made from durable, child-friendly materials and has a flexible gooseneck with a powerful, bright LED light attached to the end. An “on/off” switch conserves energy when Ed is not in use. Also Ed is smart enough not to go on if it senses light. That saves energy too. To recharge, simply angle the solar panel toward the sun. For every hour of strong sun charging, Ed will run for approximately 1 1/2 hours. Spreading the Light: Through partnerships and collaboration with organizations focused on children and education, Nokero is bringing sustainable and nontoxic solar light to the millions of children around the world living without electricity. Ed is not only an everyday difference-maker for kids, but a means of teaching sustainability around the globe. And the price is right too! Right now it’s available on the company website for $6! Although Nokero loves the average consumer, the bigger plan is to sell these in large quanities to companies. The profts will enable them to offer free units to kids in third word countries who have no electricity.
