Solar QWNN™ has an extra special place in our hearts. It is our most impressive solar light invention to date and was awarded a US patent in record time. It also bears the name of our Founder’s son Quinn. Many of you are familiar with the story of Alice Chun, who began to focus her work on solar energy upon learning that Quinn suffered from asthma. As she has famously quoted in her TedX Talk “A worried mom does better research than the FBI.” Alice went on to invent her first award-winning patented solar light and Solight Design was born. Quinn was her inspiration. The light of her life and the Solar QWNN™, the light of life.
Award-winning product design
Beautifully designed to create geometric and circular shapes. Easy to open and close. No inflating by mouth nozzle required. The QWNN uses a high performance fabric used for racing boat sails as well as cruising sails. The Double X“ construction, is multi layered and can handle strain in six different directions. No wonder, this material is a shape retention king and perfect for Origami folding. We chose this material due to the fiber matrix so it provides long performance life and superior durability.
Anywhere, anytime charging
Mobile charging functionality so you can charge your devices anywhere, anytime. Engineered for superior performance life, durability and water-resistance.
SELF-INFLATING. NO MOUTH NOZZLE REQUIRED.
Our innovative, award-winning product design and material technology differentiates all our products from the competition. Inspired by origami, Solight products transform from flat polygons into beautiful cube and pyramid shapes with simple pull-open actions. This eliminates the need for a mouth nozzle to inflate and re-inflate. For easy portability, Solights transform back to neat flat-packable positions without the need to deflate.

INSTRUCTIONS AND OPERATING MODES
Solar QWNN™ Set-Up
Upon arrival of your Solar QWNN™, the battery will be at a 50% charge. Before using for the first time, we recommend charging for 3-4 hours via the Solar QWNN's micro-USB port using the USB cord included in your package. This will ensure your Solight is fully charged before first time use and will contribute to optimal future performance.
Charging your Solar QWNN™
Direct sunlight is the optimal way to charge, with your Solight expanded, the solar panel facing the sunlight, and the power turned off. If your battery is low on charge, it typically takes 8 hours to fully charge. Charging through a window on a cloudy day could increase your Solight’s charging time by up to 30%.
You can determine what level of charge the unit is at with the 4 dot indicator lights. Each dot represents 25% of the total charge. When all 4 dots are blue it means your light is 100% charged. If 3 indicator lights are blue, your light is 75% charged and so on. A blinking light indicates that the unit is in charging mode.

SOLAR LANTERN + POWER BANK: SOLAR QWNN 3 FORMS in ONE LAMP!
My sample size is two.
There is certainly room for improvement for the product. The buttons on both of mine are not very tactile or responsive unlike my puff and helix. The white vinyl covering the internals/power button is not durable at all unlike the rest of the product. It will (and has) torn with a fingernail using it. That said, it does not impact the integrity of the product, it appears to be purely cosmetic.
The magnets this uses are next to worthless. They're too weak to hold the product together when being used as a lantern.
For those who are particular about the weight they carry backpacking, you may have to ponder a bit before packing it. It's a rather bulky and heavy thing in the "ounces equal pain" game. However, for those who want something at home or to carry in a bag for daily life, this is phenomenal.
This thing absolutely throws off light. In that regard, I find it absolutely worth the price.
There are four lights on the side, pretty easy to ascertain it's charge level. But you'll find that the amount of power this has, it is a bit sensitive to positioning of light. Laying it outside won't fully charge it, the more you expose it to direct sunlight the better (big surprise...)
They are beautiful and we are looking forward to giving them as gifts.
So pretty and versatile. I love giving it as gifts
We are so grateful for your review! Thank you JILL!!
I already bought one of these and took it with me on a trip to East Africa where it was used frequently so I left it there for my friend.
The power bank was particularly handy as I knew I’d always have my cell phone available.
Thank. you. so much Roz! We love the way your share your light!
keep shining bright!!
