“Designed as a replacement for hazardous and costly kerosene lanterns in the developing world, the d.light S20 Solar LED Area Lantern is both inexpensive and durable. Charged by a solar panel mounted on the top of the lantern, the light flicks on with the push of a glow-in-the-dark button.”
Sean McCoy, June 2, 2014

“The S20 solar lantern is the follow-up to the much loved S10, a low-cost, everyday light source currently used all over the developing world. Great design features include the glow-in-the-dark button, a battery charge indicator, and the ability to charge from the wall or solar energy. (It needs eight hours of sun for a full charge.)”
