The world’s only bulb‐shaped solar lights

Nokero stands for No Kerosene, and the bulbs are meant to replace kerosene lanterns still used by a
quarter of the world’s population.
Nokero lights are a complete solar collection, storage, and light output system in one portable bulb.
Their unique design makes them instantly recognizable as lights anywhere in the world.
Their use requires no training or installation.
They are rainproof and durable.
Their replacable NiMH batteries will last 2‐3 years.
The bulbs can last 5+ years if well cared for.
They can be carried on the person or hung outside to charge during the daytime.

A quarter of the world's population still obtains illumination by burning fuels, contributing to global pollution and significant health hazards.

Kero (Kerosene) is dangerous, expensive, and polluting.
Using Kerosene can be like smoking 40 cigarettes a day.
1.3 million barrels of oil per day are consumed for lighting use.
Fuel lighting releases 190 million tons of CO2 each year.
Pollution released is the equivalent to 30 million cars.
Kero users breathe 10 times more particles than recommended.

Nokero bulbs collect energy from the sun by day and release
clean, non-toxic light at night.

Recharging Nokero is free.
Nokero pay for themselves within months of purchase.
Nokero soaks in the sun, then releases the energy at night.
Nokero consumes 1/200th the energy of fuel lights.
Nokero bulbs are the most cost-effective lights of their kind.
Nokero is clean, efficient, and long-lasting.

Nokero N100 solar lights are made of impact-resistant plastic, four solar panels, a replaceable rechargeable battery and five light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The Nokero N100 is about the size of a standard light bulb and can withstand tough outdoor conditions.

Nokero N200 is just as tough as the N100, but it is 60% brighter and lasts three times as long. The bulb has a single solar panel, a replaceable rechargeable battery, and four light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The Nokero N200 should be tilted to face the sun during the day (charging) and tilted to point light at night (lighting).

Nokero's works with dealers, non-governmental organizations (NGO), donors, and proactive groups around the world.
