Panasonic has just announced that they have donated a cool 4,000 Solar LED lanterns to victims of the Tohoku-Pacific ocean earthquake, and that isn’t the only thing that the Japanese company has done but also gave monetary and in-kind donations as well. These rechargeable Solar LED lanterns come in the form of a type of LED lighting which relies on solar cell panels to provide the necessary juice. All 4,000 units comprise of three models of Solar LED lanterns, where two of these models will come with a USB port to power battery exhausted cell phones (and other compatible devices). Good on Panasonic – will other companies also follow suit and donate gizmos as well?
