The Nokero N200 strikes a perfect balance between quality and affordability, which is why we think it is the most economical all-in-one solar light available today.
At Nokero our goal is to make dependable solar lighting products that remain affordable, even to the world’s most impoverished people.
Every day a solar light operates, it saves its owner money and can help lift a family out of poverty. The initial investment of buying an N200 pays for itself in a short period of time (days to months, depending on market forces) yet the bulb is built to last for years.
Unfortunately, some of the ultra-inexpensive solar products on the market don’t last. Cheap in all senses of the word, these lights fail within weeks, days, or even hours, because of their low-quality components or poor design.
HOW GOOD IS YOUR SOLAR LED?
Light quality and brightness:
Several inexpensive models of solar light simply aren’t bright enough, or don’t last long enough, to do the job of replacing kerosene lamps or candles. Nokero lamps have successfully and completely replaced kerosene, candles, and other forms of personal lights in various climates and conditions around the world, including field tests in regions as diverse as Pakistan, Mexico, Haiti, Columbia, and Kenya.
Cheap models feature batteries that lose efficiency in high heat. Hanging in the hot equatorial sun, temperatures can exceed 45°C (113° F) – the special Nokero battery can handle heat up to a scorching 55°C (131° F) and maintain battery charging efficiency.
Some models use non-standard batteries, so they are very difficult to replace, and tools are required to access the battery compartment. Nokero’s high-quality, NiMH battery features tool-less replacement. The battery is also a commonly-used rechargeable AA-sized battery, available for about $1 US virtually anywhere in the world.
Beware of ultra-inexpensive solar light systems, which fail after only one exposure to rain or snow, and are susceptible to failure even in high humidity. Solar products need to be used outdoors, in direct sunlight – but weather can come at any time. Electronics and water don’t mix, that’s why Nokero’s products are rainproof*.
Designers who don’t understand manufacturing techniques often make a nice-looking product, but one that is too expensive to produce. Other models aren’t ergonomic, tip over easily, or are difficult to hang and carry. The Nokero is built and shipped efficiently, shaving precious cents off its cost. Most of all, the Nokero N200 is bulb-shaped, making it instantly recognizable around the world, and a desirable item for any home.
Pivot toward the sun:
Solar panels create power much more efficiently when they can be pointed directly at the sun. The Nokero N200 can be pivoted to face the sun, making it extremely efficient.
Not all solar panels are created equal. Nokero’s high-efficiency solar panels are some of the best available on the market – and they maintain their high-efficiency for 10 years or more. This high-efficiency makes our products smaller, lighter and easier to ship, sometimes as much as ½ the size of other models.
The heat deflection temperature of many products is low – which means they will warp in the sun. The Nokero N200 has blended ABS (160 degrees C) and PC (140 degrees C) plastic designed to spend lots of time in extreme temperature – yet keep its shape.
