IKEA Unveils Solar-Powered Lighting Product Line

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.
