The Ellum Solar Light – convenience and simplicity

Ellum Solar Light

If you hadn’t noticed, there is a type of light for just about every imaginable situation you could come up with. Whether you need a nightlight, grill light, hat light, color-changing light, or light up coasters, there’s something for everything. More often than not, our lights have to be plugged in at all times, charged via USB, or have new batteries put in occasionally.

If you don’t have enough lights in your home and are holding out for the perfect light gizmo to accommodate your every day, then you’ll want something that can be versatile and doesn’t have much maintenance. The Ellum Solar Light is a simple, convenient, and beautiful way to light up your world. This solar light will magnetically attach and detach to the base, or any other place you might need it to be, like the hood of your car or tool box.

These lights can detect motion, so you can use them as hallway lights or night lights, and there’s also a touch dimmer allowing them to be mood lights if you’re into that sort of thing. The solar panels are on the bottom of the light, so you only need to set it next to a window for the duration of one full day to give you up to 6 months of use. This solar-powered warm-toned LED light encased in wood is going to cost you $59, and you can choose between black walnut or a hard white maple.
