Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GEAR -

This LED light doesn’t use bat­ter­ies or so­lar pan­els to power it, but rather salt and wa­ter. The Mizusion lamp (‘mizusion’ is Ja­panese for salt and wa­ter) con­tains a mag­ne­sium cell, or power bar, that cre­ates elec­tri­cal cur­rent when in con­tact with salt and wa­ter – even sea­wa­ter will gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity. Each power bar pro­vides 2 000 Lux of light for about 80 hours and “can be re­placed at a nom­i­nal cost”. The lamp it­self is ex­pected to last 10 years. De­vel­oped in Ja­pan by Hi­tachi, the Mizusion LED salt wa­ter-pow­ered lamps will be avail­able in most out­door equip­ment stores in SA soon.
