The Pico Lamp is a multifunctional stationary or mobile lighting device that is specially designed to meet the needs of rural households and recreational activities. It is equipped with a high-efficiency power LED and excellent charging technology. Its flare housing conceals multiple functions as a ceiling-mounted lamp, a portable, hand-held lamp, and a USB charger (for cell phones, MP3 players, and others) – in a single device.Charging is highly flexible as well: Pico can be powered by solar modules, batteries, or AC adapters. The integrated Phocos MPPT charge controller extends battery lifespan and provides light for up to 55 hours. The robust housing is sealed against water and dust. It also is shock resistant – this protects the electronic components inside from soil, moisture, insects, and malfunctions.
An added advantage: The Phocos Pico Lamp is the only lamp on the market, which has no moving parts thanks to capacitive switches, thus eliminating conventional switch failures, one of the most common reasons for the breakdown of small solar systems.
Dimensions: 11" Tall x 6.1" Wide at the widest point, weighs 1.25 pounds.

"...about the Pico lights...I love them. I have charged them via my solar system and also via the solar panel that comes with them. They work great and when I realized that when the light went down to dim it was telling you that it needed charged then that was no problem. I have also charged my iPhone with it using the solar panel that came with it and that also work great so now I have several options of charging things.. We also tried putting the solar panel that came with the light in my south facing window to charge a lamp and it worked so there is also another option. My one daughter is so impressed with the light she is thinking of purchasing one for her emergency kit. I am also thinking about doing that. So needless to say I am very, very happy with the whole system that I purchased from you. Thanks again for all you help. "
I have charged and discharged this lamp several times and am very impressed with it's run time. This lamp/light is durable. Great for camping, hiking, going to the beach, etc. LOVE IT!
