Aren’t we all a little sick of receiving holiday gifts that are completely useless and end up collecting dust in the junk drawer? Well, here’s a gift idea that’s extremely useful, but still an exciting product to unwrap, thanks to its sleek design and fun, bulbous shape.
Nokero‘s solar lights are perfect for camping, traveling, or everyday use in a poorly-lit apartment. The Huron N222 (pictured above) can charge a cell phone while it illuminates an entire room, while the Start N182 is compact enough to fit in your pocket (hello, stocking stuffer) but strong enough to light up a small space.
The Huron solar light and phone charger retails for $45 and is one of the most technologically advanced combinations out there. And if you’re thinking of taking it camping, it features a yellow lens to keep insects away and a red lens to help with night vision. It also comes with a standard USB port for charging, a battery level and charging indicator, an integrated hanging clip and a base stand.
The Start solar light is the most affordable and compact solar light bulb in the world. It provides 10 lumens of bright light for five consecutive hours. It requires 6-8 hours of charge time in direct sunlight and retails for only $8.
