Lighting Africa, a joint IFC and World Bank program, is mobilizing the private sector to build sustainable markets that provide safe, affortable and modern off-grid lighting to Africa’s un-electrified communities. Their third-party test results are available here.
The WakaWaka Light was tested in three areas: truth in advertising, lumen maintenance and quality. For its truth in advertising, regarding the stated run time, battery capacity and PV power. The lumen maintenance test provided 2000 hours of operation with at least 70% initial brightness. The test also assessed the quality based on durability.
We’re thrilled that the WakaWka Light meets Lighting Africa’s recommended performance targets!
