Here’s a great gift or stocking stuffer for almost anyone on your list!

Nokero stands for “no kerosene”—and they build portable solar lights to replace kerosene lamps and candles. Nokero lights charge by day and provide light by night. This holiday season, Nokero would like people to give the gift of light. For every purchase, Nokero will donate a light to a needy family in the developing world. Approximately 1.4 billion people lack access to electricity and one million people globally are killed each year due to kerosene lamp fires.

Recently, they launched the “world’s most efficient light.” The N233 is perfect for camping, emergencies, outdoor events or anywhere you might need a flashlight or lantern. Kids love them for reading under the covers or lighting their blanket fort. And, it never needs batteries! Nokero products are weatherproof and designed and tested in Colorado to survive the toughest conditions. The N233 provides an incredible 15 hours of light after a day’s charge in the sun. It fits in your pocket, but is bright enough to light a room. Suggested retail price is $17.99 and, again, that includes the light for someone in need.
