The d. light S20 Area Lantern is a versatile lantern that is ideal for everyday use. It’s a modern take on the traditional lantern with an integrated solar panel and a handle that makes it easy to use. The d. light S20 provides eight hours of light on a full battery and uses proprietary, highly efficient LEDs. The design of the d. light S20 Area Lantern is perfect for outdoor recreation and adventuring off-grid, or for emergency preparedness, where reliability may be the key to survival. The d. light S20 can be carried, hung or placed on any surface to effectively illuminate the surrounding area.
The d. light S20 Area Lantern is designed to be extremely user friendly and flexible. It has a multi-position handle and includes an integrated solar panel that makes recharging simple and easy. The d. light S20 Area Lantern can also be charged with a USB adapter (included) or a standard Nokia AC charger.
d. light is a for-profit social enterprise whose purpose is to create new freedoms for customers without access to reliable power so they can enjoy a brighter future. We design, manufacture and distribute solar light and power products throughout the developing world. We aim to empower the lives of at least 100 million people by 2020. In 2004, during d. light co-founder Sam Goldman’s Peace Corps service in Benin, Africa, his neighbor’s son was badly burned by an overturned kerosene lamp. This incident, along with the knowledge that 2.3 billion people in the world still do not have access to reliable electricity, inspired Sam to participate in a class called Entrepreneurial Design for Extreme Affordability at the Stanford Design School, where he met co-founder Ned Tozun. That’s where they developed their initial prototype solar lantern and an ambitious plan to bring safe, bright, and renewable lighting to people around the globe.
