Luci Lights Up the World

MPOWERD works to abolish energy poverty through the development and manufacturing of innovative, affordable lighting and power products.

Luci: The Beautiful Solar Powered Light

#GetLuci with it!

A solar powered light designed by MPOWERD that’s beautiful enough for your own home but within reach of the whole world

Luci at a Dinner Party

When we started work last year, our goal was to create a source of light that was durable and affordable enough to brighten the darkest corners of our planet and fundamentally change the lives of people living in ‘energy poverty’.

What we came up with was Luci, a solar powered light that stands at the intersection of what is possible and what matters.

By combining cutting-edge solar technology with thoughtful design we have created a light-source that will change lives around the world but which also fits beautifully into your home.

We have shown on a small-scale that Luci can literally brighten the world but we at MPOWERD have so much more work to do. We need to scale production up to bring costs down further. We need to find and supply more Buy One Give One partners to maximize Luci’s impact on people living below the energy poverty line. We need to start R&D on the other world-changing products in our pipeline. We need to continue building what we’ve started.

That’s why we’re asking you to support our campaign and #GetLuci with us.

Luci is not only beautiful, it is also an engineering marvel.

  • Charging for 8 hours -- under direct sunlight or even an incandescent bulb -- yields 6-12 hours of light
  • A single charge can be maintained for 3 months
  • Ten Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) create a beautiful white light
  • Two brightness levels conserve battery life and the flashing-light setting is useful in emergencies
  • Delivers up to 80 lumens, providing 15 sq ft of light
  • Rechargeable lithium polymer battery pack is durable and safe
    • 300 - 500 cycle life
    • Over charge/discharge protection
    • Over current and short circuit protection
  • PVC enclosure makes Luci waterproof

MPOWERD is proud to be a member of a pioneering group of for-profit companies, known as Benefit Corporations, that have committed themselves to harnessing the power of business for social good.

Seeking positive social returns is built into our legal DNA and is one of our guiding principles. With that mission and the lessons of other Benefit Corporations in mind, we have implemented a Buy One Give One model that will ensure broad distribution and connect our Indiegogo supporters with people currently living in energy poverty in a meaningful way.

With your help we’ll be able to build a sustainable business that will help transform the lives of millions of people around the world.
