Designed to provide 100 hours of continuous light, the Aqua Lamp eco-emergency lantern is billed as safe, non-toxic, renewable and earth friendly.
The key feature is that it contains a magnesium power bar which, when immersed in salt water (regular table salt & tap water or seawater), creates electricity.
The “power bar” dissolves after approximately 100 hours, when you simply replace it and add more salt and water.
The power bar and residual salt water are safe and non-toxic and the power bars can be stored for up to 25 years, while the lamp’s LEDs can last up to 50,000 hours.
You simply wash the magnesium power bar with clean water when not in use.
