IKEA [2] has continued to wow us with their solar powered lighting options [3], and their new “Solvinden” lamps are no exception. Available in black, turquoise, white and lime green, the adorable tabletop lamps include three rechargeable solar batteries that will light up the night long after the sun has set.

Each lamp features a solar panel atop its shade that provides four hours of light after soaking up 9-12 hours of sunlight. The built-in LED [4] bulb has a shelf life of about 20,000 hours, and the batteries last for about two years.

The Solvinden is perfect for nighttime barbeques in the yard, or even as an inexpensive lamp to bring along in your camper [5] this summer. At $19.99 it’s a steal.
