Stylish and eco-friendly: Sanyo's eneloop lamps (video)


Sanyo Japan today announced the strange, vase-like “eneloop lamp” [press release in English] that can be used both as a regular interior light or as a flashlight (when you pick it up and hold it like one). As a third option, the device also serves as a “healing lamp” once you switch from white to blue lighting.

The eneloop lamp can be charged wirelessly by putting it on its charging stand. Sanyo says two eneloop AA batteries are enough to power the futuristic device for 6 hours in flashlight mode, up to 45 hours in white light mode and up to 16 hours in blue light mode.


The eneloop lamp will hit Japanese stores September 11 and will cost $160. Take a look at the video below to see how the healing light works. Sanyo is yet to say something about their distribution plans for the lamp.
