Press release: Nokero Launches the World’s Most Efficient Light

Nokero International Ltd is pleased to announce the release of the Nokero N233 solar light, the world’s most efficient light, at the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair, October 27-30, 2015. The Hong Kong International Lighting Fair is the industry’s premier event with more than 2,500 exhibitors and 40,000 attendees from over 35 countries. The innovative N233 is an affordable, clean and safe light source that can replace dirty and dangerous kerosene or candles. It is also perfect for camping, emergency preparedness and use, or anywhere you might use a lantern, flashlight or torch.
Nokero lights provide an incredible 15 hours of light after a day’s charge in the sun. The N233 is small enough to fit in your pocket, but bright enough to light a room. The N233 is highly versatile and can be held as a torch or flashlight, easily hung by its clip, or used with its included table top stand. Its rechargeable battery lasts up to five years, which is a lot of time for hiking, boating, reading and illuminating kids’ blanket forts. The N233 comes fully charged and ready to use. The suggested retail price for the N233 is $17.99.
Nokero’s brand name stands for “no kerosene.” According to Nokero CEO Steve Katsaros, approximately 1.4 billion people lack access to electricity and one million people globally are killed each year due to kerosene fires.
“Nokero lights solve some of the devastating problems that arise from energy poverty. Our solar lights are changing lives in the third world and enhancing lives in the U.S. and other first world countries,” said Katsaros.
Given Nokero’s commitment to safe and clean lighting for all, they provide a light to a person or family in need at no cost for every purchase made. Their “buy a light, give a light” approach underscores their dedication to making a difference for those in energy poverty.
As the world’s most efficient light, the N233 boasts the highest light output per watt compared to other solar lamps, incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescent bulbs and the like. Performance specifications:

  • Brightness (lumens): 25 (high)/10 (low)
  • Run time (hours): 6 (high)/15 (low)
  • Battery:  Five year life. Holds a charge for 18 months.
  • Charging: 6-8 hours of sunlight

In addition to the N233, Nokero offers a full range of patented, affordably priced solar products that emphasize ease of use and efficient energy conversion. Engineered for durability, Nokero products are weatherproof and designed to withstand years of daily use in the world’s harshest conditions. The Nokero product development team is based in Colorado and conducts rigorous product testing in the nearby Rocky Mountains.
