The BoGolight is so named for being “Buy one Give one”. These are unique solar powered LED flashlights that are still bright enough to read by at night.
The flashlight has a solar panel which charges regular rechargeable cells in 8 hours. Once fully charged, it can provide light for upto 4 hours. It has 6 powerful LEDs that light things up enough to read by at night. Like the website says, you can dangle a bogolight from your back pack when camping and it will be charged and ready to go by the time you are ready to pitch camp.
The unique concept behind the light is that when you buy one for use in the US, you can also choose an NGO that works in the developing nation. The NGO gets a free copy of the flashlight and $1. The company also takes care of shipping the light to the organization of your choice. Sounds too good to be true? Well, it almost is – it has received press coverage, even from the NY Times.
