Little SunCharge

The Little Sun Charge Story

The second member of our Little Sun family, a solar charger and lamp we call Little Sun Charge, was officially launched in 2016 and is now available all over the world . You’ve come to the right place to find out more about this little solar wonder.

From its beginnings as a successful Kickstarter project in 2015, Little Sun Charge is charging phones and changing the lives of people across the planet, like community health workers in Tanzania. Like the Little Sun Original, our product was designed by the Little Sun founders, artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen.

Charge your phone. Charge your life.

We’re ready for your order! Delivery time is currently 5-7 working days and is free within Germany for orders over €99. We also now have a custom-built stand available to buy separately for €9.

Solar charger with inbuilt lamp

7.5 hours in the sun gives you a fully powered Charge or over 150 hours of light

Works with most of your small devices and uses standard USB connectivity

Robust, durable and water resistant: made for the great outdoors

Like Little Sun’s iconic first product, all Little Sun Charges sold in areas with electricity will make solar energy available in areas without electricity at locally affordable prices – strengthening communities from the inside.

So not only are you getting a premium solar product for yourself, but you also make a big difference to the life of someone living without energy access.

Solar love from our Kickstarter backers so far…
