The SALt Lamp is a cost-effective light source that is changing people’s lives in the Philippines. This revolutionary invention was developed by engineer Aisa Mijeno as an asset for the many households that are unable to access or afford electricity. Rather than having residents rely on oil lamps (which can cause fires) or expensive battery-powered lights, Mijeno’s device provides them with a safe and economical source of illumination.
SALt is a revolutionary tool that requires only one glass of water and two tablespoons of salt to supply a night’s worth of light. Even if salt isn’t readily available to mix with water, the product is able to run on nearby ocean water–a feature that will most definitely come in handy during a crisis. The lantern’s electrodes are also exceptional because they can work for one year without needing to be replaced.
This safe and harmless lighting alternative is currently being designed for non-profit organizations and for those in need. Soon, it will be made available to all consumers. As they begin to develop and produce this product, SALt hopes to distribute another version that can charge cell phones and other portable electronic devices.
