The Little Sun was originally invented by a social business focused on getting clean, reliable, affordable light to 1.6 billion people worldwide without access to electricity.
Now available for North America, the Little Sun is a practical solar light that utilizes the world’s most efficient solar cell to brighten up your camping trips, at the beach, festivals, BBQ or hiking.
The Little Sun is extremely easy to use. Simply charge it with the power of the sun for 5 hours and receive 10 hours of soft light or 4 hours of bright light. The solar cells last for 2 years before needing to be replaced.
The Michael Bloomberg foundation is investing $5,000,000 into the Little Sun to bring solar power to Africa. This fund will provide low-interest loans for residents of sub-Saharan Africa to distribute these portable solar powered lamps.
Little Sun is:
*An attractive, high-quality solar-powered LED lamp developed by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen

We use our Little Sun for just about everything. It works as a wonderful bedtime light, a light for use through the night, perfect for those times we loose power, and of course for every outing that you can imagine. The Little Sun is the perfect camping light.
The Little Sun is so easy to use. Just put it where it will be in the sunlight and you are ready to go with the light you need any time that you need it. It is very attractive and appealing to Little Ones and adults alike. It comes with a string that allows you to hang it up or for Little Ones to wear around their neck.
The Little Sun takes approximately 5 hours to fully charge and has two settings for use. You can have a soft light for approximately 10 hours or a brighter light for approximately 4 hours. So you can use it as a soft night light or a bright flashlight depending on your needs.
You can order the Little Sun and decide what you wish to pay for it. Yes that is right, you can boost your payment when you order if you choose in order to support the Little Sun and all that it does for those that do not have access to light.
When you buy a Little Sun, you receive a high-quality solar-powered lamp – but that’s not all. With each purchase you are investing in the delivery of Little Sun light to off-grid areas. Currently Little Suns are being distributed in eight African countries: Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Burundi, Senegal, South Africa, Nigeria and Zimbabwe.
