Nokero makes solar lights and chargers to meet the needs and budgets of communities living without access to electricity. The N200 bulb captures sunlight and efficiently converts it into electricity, storing energy in a reusable battery. When properly charged, the N200 can provide up to 7 hours of clean and sustainable light via 4 LEDs.
