New York, NY – January 5, 2015: MPOWERD Inc. today announced that it has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for its versatile and affordable Luci EMRG inflatable solar light. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
MPOWERD’s Luci EMRG is a highly versatile inflatable solar light created in response to worldwide consumer demand for an affordable, durable, multi-use and non-polluting light. The award-winning new product addresses the needs of 1.4 billion people living in energy poverty without access to grid electricity and relying on harmful fuel-based light sources. Luci EMRG also addresses the growing demand in established markets such as the USA where the disruptively innovative light is ideal for everything from power outages and car trouble to natural disasters and off-grid adventures. Luci EMRG has four solar LED lights and four light settings, including: safety flashing, high visibility red and white S.O.S., super bright flashlight and bright diffused lantern mode. A safe alternative to candles, kerosene or battery power, the powerful lightweight light (only 2.6 oz.) has an on/off switch, is shatterproof, IP67 waterproof rated and fully submersible, floats on water and lasts up to 10 years without ever having to buy or change a battery. Retailing in the US for $9.99, Luci EMRG shines bright for seven hours on a full eight hour charge and retains 95% of its charge per month during storage so is always ready to use.
“As a consumer products company that is experiencing explosive growth and that prides itself on innovating for real need in the world, we are thrilled that our newest and most affordable inflatable solar light, Luci EMRG, has been recognized for its utility and design by such a highly respected organization as the Consumer Electronics Association,” said Scott Kling, President & Chief Operating Officer of MPOWERD. “We can’t wait to work with our expanding partner base worldwide to get Luci EMRG into the hands of those who need (and want) it most.”
MPOWERD’s Luci EMRG will be introduced to retail buyers and on display at the 2015 International CES, which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Media, buyers and visitors are invited to drop by MPOWERD’s booth at: #75700 Sands Expo.
