Go Green For $20, New IKEA Lamp

IKEA has introduced a new eco-friendly table lamp that is the perfect way to help reduce our carbon footprint. The solar-powered lamp is called the Solvinden and is packed with three rechargeable AA batteries and a solar charger. The batteries power the lamp for about four hours and while simple in design, it’s an excellent way of lighting up your home without hitting your electricity bill. The lamp weighs in to be about two pounds and recharging times takes 9-12 hours in sunlight with over 12 hours on a cloudy day.
