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.

I was a part of the kickstarter project because this idea was so unique and sustainable. I’ve taken my OG lantern on endless road trips, and thought that an additional lantern, with a power bank would be lessen my anxiety. Here’s to the next adventure!
Dear David, These pictures are so great! Thank you for sharing!! Thank you so much for choosing clean lighting!!
This is one of the most elegant designs I have encountered in my long life... not only from an engineering/architectural standpoint, but from an interior design standpoint. These lanterns fill me with JOY! I love them sitting on a table or hanging on a fence or two together hanging freely from a tree. At the risk of dating myself, these are super-cool and I highly recommend them.
I love all the solar lights I’ve purchased and I have many and have given as gifts too. The QWNN is my latest. I’m very happy so far. Very bright light if needed…softer too. I love options. It’s a bit heavy, if one plans on carrying it for camping , hiking etc but in a backpack…the weight would not matter and would be worth it. I love that it has straps too..can hang it or set it on a flat surface….again…love those options. Turning it on or off….the button is …not exactly located under the power sign but it certainly is not difficult and it works. Just comparing it to the other lights it’s a bit different but not actually difficult. I have not used it to charge anything yet. Will update as needed.
Thank you so much Patricia! You are amazing! We are grateful for your kindness and love that. you have our. whole family of lights!
We love these lamps. I received one as a gift and love the light it provides so much that we have gotten several more. They are great for light in our yard at night a provide fantastic ambiance. I have charged them using the solar cells and it is easy and very convenient. Some day I will take them camping, but for now they are perfect for what I need.
Thank you Brian! We totally agree with you about the ambiance, we tried hard to get a good light effect with the LEDS combined with the diffuser material.
You brightened. our day!!
Aloha to you all, and mahalo piha for the wonderful lights we have from you. I do not have the words. They help us each day. We have a couple small outbuildings with no electricity. One i keep by the altar. We also have been using so the cats we are helping to rehabilitate have a little light at night. I know it gives them comfort. Thank you again for these wonderful lights.
