Med-Spot on Med-Source - Solar Flashlights

Med-Spot: 5.20.07

Solar Flashlights bring the luxury of light to Africa’s Poorest Villages. Each flashlight emits up to seven hours of light on a daily solar recharge and can last nearly three years between replacements of three AA batteries. Over 2 billion people cannot afford electricity and the solar flashlight provides a means of providing light in schools, health clinics, and homes. See the full NYT article here.
The flashlights usually sell for about $19.95 in American stores, but the investment is worth while if you go to, where for every flashlight you purchase for $25, a second flashlight is shipped to Africa.
