IKEA’s Introduces solar-powered lamps

Everybody’s going green these days, and the favorite Swedish furniture store IKEA is no exception. The furniture company recently launched a series of solar-powered table lamps named Solvinden.

Working best at a desk that is next to a window, these solar lamps contain rechargeable batteries that are juiced from the rays of the sun. The lamps last for about 4 hours, which should be enough for most purposes though it wouldn’t hurt if it lasted a bit longer. It takes about 9-12 hours for a full charge – allocate about 15 hours for a cloudy day. So head down to your local IKEA store to pick up one of these for $19.99 (BHD 7.5) each.
