A light when it’s Dark – The LuminAID
In first world countries, we are blessed to have electricity 24 hours of the day and not have to spend nights in darkness. We may experience it from time to time when there is a power outage, but the power is quickly restored. However, that is only in cities and populated areas. What would you do for illumination if you like camping and hiking in the woods? Most often people build a fire or use a battery operates torch. However what happens when you do not have any battery power left or cannot make a fire?
The LuminAID Light
This item is a unique thing that can be a lifesaver for those who like to spend time outdoors. But in real life, the product has been a lifesaver for many people in countries like Haiti where there have been many natural disasters. The makers of this innovative and practical item have donated thousands of them so that those stricken by these horrific conditions can still get some light when things don’t look so bright.
How does the product work?
It is an incredibly unique product that does not require batteries. All you have to do is leave it in the sun, so it soaks up all the solar rays and then when its dark simply switch it on, and you will have 8 hours of illumination on the high setting and 16 hours on the low setting.
The LuminAID is a multipurpose product that can be used as a pillow when inflated and as a container to carry water. It is double insulated from the outside and the inside and can be carried in your pocket. It is waterproof and made from durable plastic and other materials.
Uses of the product
This revolutionary product is ideal for camping, trekking, exploring and just about any outdoor activity. It is also a useful thing to have if you live in an area that suffers from frequent power outages. If you reside far away from the city and rely on a generator to fulfill your power needs you may want to have this as a backup in case you run out of fuel or the generator breaks down at night.
The LuminAID was developed by Andrea Shresta and Anna Stork while they were students at the Columbia University and they even got a patent for it. They have traveled far to countries like India to study the practical uses of there innovation and helped many in need by donating many of them.
