Oct. 31, 2012 - PRLog -- Sales of the WakaWaka Solar Lamp have been surprisingly strong in the U.S. since the product launched in August of this year.  Designed to overcome the extremes of Africa the WakaWaka Solar Lamp is the most efficient solar lamp on the planet delivering 16 hours of bright reading light for every 8 hours of charging in the sun, thanks to the patented Intviation technology.  In addition to the spike in sales  there was concern from many that their order would not arrive in time.  

Steve Thibeault, CEO says, “In a power down scenario, having dependable light is critical. The WakaWaka solar Lamp delivers all night long bright light while powering itself up during the day. Quality is what our customers are used to, and the WakaWaka Lamp is one of those products where you can stop looking once you find it.”

Super Storm Sandy is an excellent example of how quickly disaster can strike and leave millions in darkness for days and possibly weeks.  "I have been a New Yorker for the past 30 years and this is the worst citywide disaster I have ever seen, says Wayne Mulligan. I got my WakaWaka Solar Lamps a few weeks ago and the WakaWaka eliminated the need for batteries or candles and I have had light every night all night ."  

Starting today, Oct. 31, 2012,  Off Grid Solutions is making the Gray WakaWaka available at a reduced cost; 2 for $60  with free shipping, while supplies last.  The hope is that everyone that comes out of this storm unscathed will have an opportunity to prepare for the next disaster and not be left in the dark.  There will be more more disasters, natural or man made and we want to help people prepare now.
