Lumir has created a very unique LED light aptly named the Lumir C that is powered by a small tea light candle and requires no batteries or power cables to operate.
The Lumir C has been designed to provide more illumination than the candle would be able to create on its own and is perfect for locations without any external power supply.
Watch the video below to learn more about the design and inspiration of the very unique Lumir C candle powered LED light. Its creators explain more :
We’ve come to know the seriousness of blackouts travelling throughout India. Though many households in developing countries still brighten the darkness with candle light, it is too dark to lead an everyday life with only one candle.
Therefore we agonized over the problem. ‘What if they can light up a room with just one candle?’ We focused on the fact that most of fuel are spent as heat energy when a candle burn. By using the principle which is the conversion of temperature difference in two other types of semi-conductor directly into electricity, Lumir C turns LED on only with heat energy of the candle without external power supply.
Simplicity ; Just putting Lumir C over a lighted candle will turn the LED on. No battery ; Batteries have been causing severe pollution to environment. But eco-friendly Lumir C doesn’t use any batteries so it is free from that problem. Cordless ; It doesn’t need any burden wire or outlets because your candle will make electricity instead. So you can use Lumir C anywhere you want such as in camping, on bedside or while decorating your house if you have just one candle. Simple design ; With our neat design, it fits everywhere.
