Did you see the wire running from the solar charger to the wall charger ?They need to make the solar panel more lightsensitive to use in the room. Need to make it cheaper for everyone to use.First learn how to cut cost and improve light senser. I will surely buy for my outdoor/indoor activities.
This produce is fabulous. I have solar lights in my porch, on the shed to light the path at night for our dogs, on the walk way to the back yard, on the deck around the pool. There are so many different ways to light our surroundings at night. This new product in a wonderful addition to so many solar charging alternatives. I love it ..
While the d.light S250 is a great product, it is priced too high to make much of an impact on the developing world where a poor farmer might make as much as $2 a day. The absolute key to the developing world is price with $10 seeming to be the tipping point. There is a comparable solar light to the S250 from China for about $13 and that is getting to the point of saleability. For mid to high end users in developing countries, this has a chance to be a market leader, but they must figure out how to drop the price.
