• Solar-charged PumLantern: Blue - "Hazards"
• Night-time activated
• Charges from the SCC3733 solar cell
• Basic electronics assembly is required
The Solarbotics PumLantern (Blue - "Hazards") features even brighter LEDs than the old HexPummer, as well as stylized lantern construction. It is a solar-charged, night-time activated light-pulsing lantern.
This kit charges all day from the SCC3733 solar cell, and pumms the four ultra-mega-super-bright LEDs to cast artistic silhouettes against the walls of the lantern. The LEDs themselves are a random grab of white, blue, red, orange and green. It is promised to avoid putting red and orange together- it isn't a very pretty combination.
Like the HexPummer, this is a build-it-yourself kit. Basic electronics assembly is needed for the Pummer circuit, and the shell slides/snaps together with little effort.
