The O’SUN ™ NOMAD solar lamp has been
designed to meet a need, or rather a several very different needs, to
improve the quality of life of its users and, in some cases, to bring
them into the modern age and/or to promote sustainable development.
The “NOMAD” solar lamp has been designed for very
different worlds. First of all, (1) to meet the needs of families in the
world that do not have access to electricity, and in particular in
developing countries, and at the same time to provide an alternative to
kerosene lamps which have caused many accidents; (2) to be used in
emergency situations: natural or humanitarian disasters; (3) but also to
be used in Western countries by people who need to light a terrace or a
garden shed and who will appreciate the flexibility of a rechargeable
solar lamp, its contemporary look and, of course, its
In developing countries, it will generally be used by
families living in one room (such as a hut in Africa for example) and
who need to use the lamp for a range of needs, such as providing
lighting for the whole family in the evening, for children to do their
homework, cooking, watching the herd during the night, i.e. enabling
people to work longer hours and therefore increase their income, etc.,
but also to recharge a mobile phone via a mobile charger which can also
be used to connect a second lamp if necessary.
In Western countries, the lamp can also be charged
using a mains adapter and a vehicle’s cigarette lighter socket in order
to make users as autonomous as possible and enable them to use the
device without any constraints.
The NOMAD lamp has been designed (1) to be as
user-friendly as possible (a single pushbutton for different settings),
(2) to provide a lighting time of more than 6 hours at full intensity
(which largely covers the lighting needs of families not having any
other source of lighting, as has been demonstrated by World Bank
studies), (3) and to be as flexible as possible to use, given that, for
many families, it will be their sole source of lighting. It may be
placed directly on the ground without risk since its luminous globe is
protected by a silicone disc. This disc also helps to prevent it from
falling off a table. Its shape means that it can be hung on a wall using
its handle in order to light a more specific part of a room or it can
be used as overhead lighting (the light spread is optimized to ensure a
good quality of lighting for a family living in one room). The handle
can also be used to carry it everywhere in the same way as any lamp.
The lamp’s design also takes into account the fact that
in a large number of cases it must be possible, for example, to fix
elements such as the solar charger on walls without needing tools, or to
fix it on the metal frame of an emergency tent using a strap.
It may also, of course, be used next to a swimming pool or on a table on a terrace for contemporary design aficionados.
The O’SUN ™ NOMAD solar rechargeable lamp is also
intended to be a sustainable product. The source of lighting uses LED
technology because of its longevity (12 LEDs). Moreover, the lamp is
designed to ensure that it is resistant to shocks and falls (within
certain limits), and the high-quality battery can be changed and
recovered by authorized distributors.
This lamp, therefore, includes social and ecological
dimensions, while also being likely to appeal to lovers of contemporary
