We're from India. A country we share with 1.1 billion other Indians, around 70%, that is, around 750 million of whom live in rural areas.
The vast majority of those millions live in one or two small rooms, with an electrical connection that powers typically a couple of 60-watt bulbs, and a fan.
For millions, power outages are a daily fact of life. Sometimes for a few minutes, more often for several hours. Several times a day, or for days at a stretch. In the day, or after dark. Sometimes pre-scheduled, but more often not.
The Batti Project is a social project, an effort to bring light to people and places left in the dark. Help us light them up.
The Seafire Batti was designed as a table lamp, for students, offices, and as a corporate gift. However, we thought it was also a great solution to our country's power problem!
Designed to charge with your mobile charger, and using a very low-power, high-lumen 2-Watt LED, the Seafire Batti charges whenever the power supply is there. And gives light whenever it goes.
