Nearly 3 billion people on this planet live without a reliable source of electricity. When the sun goes down, their only source of light comes from burning kerosene, wood, and other fuels that pollute our air. With Luci lights, MPOWERD seeks to create an alternative to dirty light sources. The Luci light inflates just like a pool toy, and its frosted surface gives of a soft, warm light. Best of all, the Luci is powered by a small solar panel that gives it 24 hours of battery power. Harness the power of the sun with Luci, and light up your night.
In 2012 MPOWERD®, with the help of principal inventor Jason Alan Snyder, created Luci®, the first inflatable solar light with the goal of making an affordable clean energy product that people could use in any situation — from outdoor camping adventures to backyard parties to everyday living for people in emerging markets without electricity.
Luci taps into a source of light that’s limitless and readily available to everyone on our planet — the sun. Advancements in renewable tech have given MPOWERD the means to literally put the power of the sun into a device that fits in the palm of your hand.
With Luci, MPOWERD were aiming for something much bigger than convenience. They want to empower the three billion people around the world who still live without reliable access to electricity. So they made a light that’s clean and safe – pretty much the opposite of the toxic and expensive kerosene lamps so many depend on – because life doesn’t stop after the sun goes down.
MPOWERD was founded on a sustainable business model that allows them to provide clean and safe solar lights to people in developing countries at prices they can afford. MPOWERD, as a social enterprise, reinvests a majority of their gross revenues to achieve sustainability, grow their reach, and ensure the fulfillment of their mission.
