d.light S250 is a dual purpose solar light and solar mobile charger. The d.light S250’s bright white light illuminates a room similarly to a 3 to 5 Watt CFL lamp, and is up to 50% more energy efficient. It provides 10 times more light than a kerosene lantern. d.light S250 also charges the most popular mobile phones on the market. It keeps personal mobile phones fully charged even when AC power is unavailable or inconvenient.
Warranty, Return and Refund policies depend on the country where the equipment will be delivered, and on the degree of coordination we will be able to set up with local organizations/distributors.

I recently arrived in the Philippines to support two of Kopernik’s ongoing solar light projects here. In an unexpected turn, I will also be exploring what solar lights mean for the emergency relief and recovery efforts in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan. I am based in San Mariano, Roxas, Oriental Mindoro, which was spared from much of the damage, but surrounding communities to the north were not as lucky. They are currently still without electricity and clean water.
