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.

And with prices ranging from $6.99 to $19.99, IKEA may just have the market cornered on solar-powered backyard lights.
