Now here is an ingenious product. The Joi candle powered LED lantern is powered solely by tealights.
When the power goes out unexpectedly, you won’t be fumbling around in the dark looking for something to light up your darkened home. You’ll simply turn to your handy Caframo candle powered lantern.
This small lantern is equipped with LEDs and never needs any batteries, solar power, or charging.
In fact, all that it ever needs is a little tea light candle.
Yes, you read that right.
A single candle powers all eight of the LEDs to provide 70 lumens for four hours or more.
No electricity needed?
Yes, the Caframo Joi lamp is an exceptionally innovative and very unique lighting product that virtually works with the help of one extremely common thing that can be found everyday in most households.
A tiny tea-light candle.
Via thermoelectric generation, a single candle’s heat can be converted into hours of beautifully bright LED lighting.
And, it’s not only a super-creative design but it’s also ideal for using indoors, outdoors, and especially during power outages.
How it works
The operation of this amazing lantern is based on something known as the Seebeck effect.
It involves the use of thermocouple technology for generating an electrical current via the exploiting of the existing temperature difference between the cooler air outside and the air inside the lantern.
And, the amazing part of this is that as long as that little candle inside the lamp burns, those LEDs are continuing to give off light. All in all, it works exceptionally well and also makes a marvelous gift idea!
