The iconic high-quality portable solar lamp is the perfect introduction to personal solar-powered light – designed by artist Olafur Eliasson.
It’s great for camping, festivals, at the beach, or for brightening your home, garden, or balcony.
Kids love the lamp – as a nightlight or for playtime – which makes it a great tool for teaching about sustainability.
Featuring a dimmer, you can easily adjust the brightness of the lamp. Five hours of charging in the sun produces more than 50 hours of light at the dimmest setting or four hours at the brightest setting.

Little Sun started as a simple idea to create a small, portable, solar lamp for people living without electricity in Ethiopia. We began as a social enterprise, selling solar devices around the world with the aim of raising funds to make solar lights and chargers available in energy-impoverished rural communities in Africa at affordable prices, where they could also provide a clean alternative to toxic and expensive fuel-based lighting.
