Brooklyn-based social enterprise BioLite Energy has developed BaseLantern, which functions as a lighting fixture for communities without access to electricity.. In other words, BaseLantern is a portable lighting fixture for unpowered streets. It is compact, miniature, when assembled, no larger than a sandwich box. It can be used to charge your phone or illuminate the street.
The flashlight is powered by a lithium-ion battery, which is enough to charge 4 phones. In BaseLantern light fixture mode, it will run for 54 hours or 114 hours, depending on the model. Moreover, you can control the light using the application. You can also set in the settings such a function as turning on when the phone approaches, and then the lamp will light up every time you enter the BaseLantern zone..
