IKEA Unveils Solar-Powered Lighting Product Line
March 10th, 2009 by Ariel Schwartz
After announcing its intentions to sell solar products last year, IKEA has come through with its promise. The furniture superstore will soon stock solar-powered LED lights for outdoor use. The lights, which should be released in the next 2 weeks, range from globes and chains to posts and work lamps.
Each light is equipped with a rechargeable battery that stores energy gathered from the sun. At night, the devices switch on LED lights. Since LEDs are more energy-efficient than incandescent bulbs, IKEA’s lights last extra-long. And with prices ranging from $6.99 to $19.99, IKEA may just have the market cornered on solar-powered backyard lights.
