Salty Solution: Lamp Powered by Seawater Lighting Up Coasts for 45 Days!

In a world hungry for clean, renewable energy, innovation knows no bounds. Colombian startup E-Dina has birthed an ingenious solution for eco-conscious souls, offering an alternative to solar power: the WaterLight. This remarkable lamp runs on a mere 500 milliliters of saltwater, illuminating life for 45 days. Let’s dive into this illuminating marvel that’s transforming coastal communities.

The Power of Seawater: How It Works

WaterLight’s brilliance lies in its simplicity. Just 500ml of seawater transforms it into a radiant light source for 45 days. But it’s more than just a lamp—it’s a lifesaver with a built-in USB port for charging your devices. This innovation is a remarkable collaboration between E-Dina and creative agency Wunderman Thompson Colombia. See the WaterLight video for a closer look at this game-changing device.

Instant Energy with Ionization

WaterLight operates on ionization, utilizing electrolytes in saline liquid to create electricity on magnesium and copper plates within the lamp. While this chemical process isn’t new, E-Dina has extended its duration, ensuring reliable and prolonged illumination. According to Pipe Ruiz Pineda, executive creative director of Wunderman Thompson Colombia, WaterLight outshines solar lanterns by delivering immediate energy without relying on sunlight.

Sustainable Illumination for Wayúu Tribe

E-Dina’s innovative lamp, crafted from durable Urapán wood, features a patented ionization method, offering an impressive 5600-hour lifespan. With an integrated circuit and a clever design for water intake and hydrogen gas release, this eco-friendly lamp can be easily refilled with seawater, promoting reuse and sustainability. It’s a game-changing solution for the Wayúu indigenous tribe in South America, providing vital illumination where electricity access is limited.

Lighting Up the World

TIME Magazine hailed WaterLight, an E-Dina creation, among the “Best Inventions of 2022.” Now, E-Dina aims to brighten millions of lives through a crowd-funding campaign, set to mass-produce 100,000 units. As founding partner Nicolas Pinzón Cordoba says, “We seek to be light where today there is only darkness.” In a world thirsty for sustainability, WaterLight beams as a beacon of hope, illuminating a brighter, greener future.
