The gravitas of light

20% of the world’s population do not have access to electricity. With a growing world population, this number is projected to remain the same for the next 20 years. Without electricity, most of these people have no other option but to use kerosene lamps to light their homes. The mission of GravityLight is to eliminate kerosene lamps and their damaging effects: it is an innovative device that generates light from gravity. GravityLight doesn’t need batteries or sunlight and costs nothing to run. It takes seconds to lift the weight that powers GravityLight creating 20 minutes of light on its descent.

GravityLight provides: Instant light, any time It takes just a few seconds to lift the weight that powers GravityLight. There’s no need to charge in advance, it’s ready when you need it. With no running costs – meaning that GravityLight pays for itself within weeks of switching from a kerosene lamp. No sun or batteries are needed : No batteries mean that GravityLight can be stored indefinitely, without the risk of batteries degrading. With no need for the sun, it can be used whatever the weather outside.
