Light Your Way With Nokero Solar Lights

Gaye LevyGaye Levy | Updated Oct 9, 2016 (Orig - Jun 21, 2016)

Let’s face the facts.  Prepper’s are lighting whores and solar geeks.  Add a flashlight or lantern to our preps and we are over the moon excited.  Get our hands on something powered exclusively by the sun we are thrilled.  Who said preppers are difficult to please?

Today, for all of you lighting and solar fans, I have the perfect solution to your portable lighting needs: Nokero Solar Lights.  Part lantern, part light bulb, the Nokero N233 Solar Light is lightweight and small but puts out an extremely bright beam.. I am going to share with you my thoughts on the Nokero  N233, but beyond that, I have five up for grabs in a giveaway plus one super Nokero W100 Solar Work Light valued at $179.  That means a total of six winners.

More about the giveaway in a moment but first, let me tell you about the Nokero N233 Solar Light-Lantern.

Light Your Way With Nokero Solar Lights | Backdoor Survival

Casting a Bright Light with the Nokero N233 Solar Light

My first impression upon opening the package was the size of the Nokero N233.  It is only 4.5 inches tall.  The second thing I noticed was it weighed almost nothing.  For the curious, it weighed in at 3 ounces. So far, so good.

The N233 is made up of two parts: the light itself and a base. One side of the light is the bulb, and the other is the solar panel plus an on-off switch.  The is a hook at the top of the light so you can hang the Nokero or, alternately, you can screw it into its base and set it on top of a table or other object.

Nokero Solar Light | Backdoor Survival

The Nokero N233 worked right out of the box.  According to the specifications, the LiFePO4 battery will hold a charge over 12 months and last up to five years.  Theoretically, you could charge the light then set it aside until you needed it.  I don’t know why you would do that, though.  I prefer to use my solar lights day to day because they save me the hassle of batteries.

There are two brightness settings. High beam is 25 lumens and low beam is 10.  I found that both settings were bright enough for reading. Although the stated run time is 6 hours on high 15 hours on low, my units ran about 10% longer than that.  During my testing, I left my two units outside on the deck overnight, not knowing it was going to rain.  I should not have been surprised since this is Washington State, after all.  Anyway, after a night of steady rainfall, my N233 solar lights still worked like a champ, thus living up to their claim of being completely weatherproof.

8 Practical Uses of the N233

I thought it would be fun to come up with some practical uses of the N233 solar light.  Here are eight, although I am sure we could double or triple this list.

1. Clip to a coat or parka to lighten the path or trail while moving around in the dark.

2. During a power outage, set along the stairway so no one trips, falls, and hurts themselves.

3. Signal others in your group by setting up codes (for on-off five times means the coast is clear).

4. Use as a reading lamp.

5. Hang above your outdoor cooking source when it is pitch black outdoors.

6. Attach to your dog’s leash during nocturnal trips outdoors to do doggy business.

7. On low beam, use as a nightlight to keep zombies and monsters out of the kids room.

8. Provide light inside the honey bucket aka outhouse.

The Nokero W100 Work Light

I had a choice of receiving a review unit of the Nokero W100 Work Light or offering one to our readers as a giveaway.  Of course I chose the giveaway!

Nokero W100 | Backdoor Survival

This photo gives you a good idea of how the Nokero W100 will light up a large area at night.

Although I did not test it myself, here is one of the reviews from Amazon:

I purchased the W100 to provide basecamp light on a recent multi-day camping trip.

While the light is on the heavy side and a little bulky it provides an incredible amount of light. We used it for five nights for about 4 hours a night and what’s truly amazing is we forgot to charge it during the day and it still lasted all of that time. Also, as we were trying to tie the light up in a tree it fell about 10’ directly onto rocks – other than a small scratch, the light was completely unharmed.

I’m so pleased with the W100 that I plan to keep one at my cabin for emergencies. Also, I like that Nokero is helping people in the third world. I highly recommend this product for anyone needing serious off-grid lighting.

Nokero W100 Work Light | Backdoor Survival

Here are the basic specifications:

Brightness (lumens): 300 (high), 150 (medium), 50 (low)
Run time (hours): 10 (high), 20 (medium), 40 (low)
Charge time: 6-8 hours
Exposure: Completely weatherproof and fully submersible

Nokero – The Company

Nokero is based in Denver, Colorado which is where their products are designed and tested.  Wonder where the name Nokero came from?  In support of it use of renewable solar energy, it came from “no kerosene”.

By now you know that I favor companies that give back to our less fortunate global citizens.  This is not being a soft touch; it is being human.  For every purchase, Nokero, the company, provides a light to a person in a developing country.

The Giveaway

Nokero is giving away one of their W100 Solar Work Lamps and five of their N233 Solar Lights.  There will be six winners.

Note:  Due to Customs requirements, this giveaway is only open to those with a mailing address in the United States.

The Final Word

I first learned about Nokero from a reader who had purchased some of their solar lamps at a show.  It was either a preparedness show or camping exposition; I really can’t remember.  What I do remember is that she said she had no financial interest in the company and was simply a satisfied customer.  It does not get much better than that.

Since that time, the company itself has grown and now has quite a few products in their lineup.  All are sold directly from their website and a few, including the N233, are sold on Amazon.

As far as I am concerned, the combination of solar energy and emergency lighting is a win win.  Please do enter the giveaway.  I would love to have you win a Nokero Solar Lamp for free.

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Bargain Bin:  Below you will find links to the items related to today’s article.

Nokero N233 Solar Light:  I first heard about these solar lights from a reader a few years back.  Now that I have tested them, I am impressed by the amount of light they give off as well their sturdy construction.  I especially like how they hold a charge for 12 months, meaning your can store them fully charged and can count on them to work during an unexpected emergency.

RAVPower 15W Solar Charger with Dual USB Ports: This compact, three panel, solar charger will charge two devices at once, including tablets, smartphones, Kindles, and even AA/AAA battery chargers.  Value priced at about $50.  For more information, read: Gear Review: RAVPower 15W Solar Charger with Dual USB Ports.

Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse: Although this is a book of fiction, it is also serves as a survival manual of sorts.  The depiction of society three years following a collapse is so very real that I could almost put myself in the same room as the members of the survival group that has banded together to protect each other as they live in a communal retreat.  The section on a bartering market was hugely insightful and gave me some idea of how it might work in a real, SHTF situation.  Considering when this was written, Patriots is eerily timely.

One Second After:  For many, the novel “One Second After” was a game changer that convinced them of the need to be prepared.  If you have not read this book, you really should.  This is my #1 pick when it comes to survival fiction.

iRonsnow Dynamo Emergency Solar Hand Crank Self Powered AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio, LED Flashlight, Smart Phone Charger & Power Bank: This $20 unit has it all in one portable package.  It can be also be powered using 3 AAA batteries.  This is a great value.

10 Inch Premium Glow Sticks – Assorted: These glow sticks are fantastic!  Each stick glows for 8-12 hours, and comes with a pre-attached hook and lanyard.  They are well priced and hold up well when packed around in a pocket or handbag.  For more information about glow sticks and chemical lighting, read 10 Reasons to Add Glow Sticks to Your Survival Kit.

  2. Organization is always a goal, it is a never ending task. Canning/freezing/drying my summer garden so nothing is wasted is next. Another goal, which is more like a wish, is saving enough money for a Sun Oven. And you can always use more lighting.

  8. You are THE most generous person! Thanks for yet another chance at a cool item! My goals are probably pretty basic and not very noteworthy. Top three goals are to have a lot more grocery store food (salmon, beans, fruit, veggies, etc), make another run to the Mormon cannery (we have one 10 miles from us!!), and to purchase/store more water. I fly by the seat of my pants, generally speaking, and don’t do badly at it. So, those goals may change on a whim…or change of mind based on what I hear/learn/find.

  29. You probably wouldn’t want to use them daily if you were keeping them for an emergency. Even though the LED lifetime is long, using them daily will wear them out. If it can hold a charge for 5 years, then storing them in the an emergency box would be a perfect usage to not worry about batteries going bad while they wait to be used.

    With the uncertainties around the election, I’m getting ready in case whoever gets elected goes off the rails and we end up in a shooting war with a nuclear power…An all out exchange probably isn’t survivable, but a limited exchange or just a terrorist group with a single nuke could make a mess of things. Heck, just the grid going down could turn into a nuclear emergency if it lasts long enough that nuclear power plants start melting down (or at least their cooling ponds run dry and catch fire.)
    I already have the civil defense meters to know when we need to shelter, but with some preparation it’ll be more effective.

  50. Hard to tell these days what are prepping goals and what are just goals. I need to get my preps organized and inventoried so I don’t buy too many things that I already have or don’t need. I need to reinforce the shelves that I’ve got and build some more to get preps and other things up off the basement floor. We hatched more chicks this year than I was expecting so raising, butchering, and canning or freezing chicken is going to take up a lot of my time.

  58. Fantastic and generous giveaway. This fits my solar strategy of small individually chargeable items. So far I have a solar radio and a solar battery charger.

    1. Buy 2-4 plastic kiddie wading pools for rain catchment. Store under the deck. Drag out to the lawn while raining. Filter, boil, and bottle water right away. Use the rain water to find out how long it will last.

    2. Plant potatoes in a bucket or storage tub. Store potatoes under the house to find out how long they will last. Will the crawl space work as a root cellar?

    3. Cache something, anything, anywhere in the ground to finally get this party started. I have triplicates of small survival equipment because some of it is going to be cached.

  60. Another great article and giv-a-way.
    I have several things I want to build, mostly a wood fired outdoor kitchen, I think a pizza-bread oven would be indespensible in a grid down situation. I would also like to build a fire ring, grill, stove combo while I’m building, I have the idea, I really need to start getting the bricks and mortar!

    I work in gun sales, so I always wonder why people wait for the rush to buy a way to protect themselves, or the rush has cleared out the ammo, and they are upset I can’t supply it.
    I am looking at myself right now and asking myself if I am going to wait for a problem with getting bricks to start and finish my idea!
    Thanks for helping me self reflect.

  100. I like the size of the lights and the fact that they are self-contained. Having a base, or a way to suspend the light is really important. We can take these camping, have them charging during the day, then either have the light on our picnic table or hanging in our tent.

    I wish I had found these before we sent out 15-year old grandson off to work at summer camp as a C.I.T. The small lights wold have been perfect for his wall tent. And at that price, I would not be too upset if one got left behind.

    I am especially excited about the work light and its high lumen capacity.

  101. would one of these submerged attract fish at night? hmm…

  102. These look like great little lights. I’ve started collected some light sources but 1) don’t have near enough and 2) these look way better than anything I’ve purchased.

  103. Almost forgot! My 3 prepping goals for the rest of the year are to continue canning food, getting my water supply in order and securing my bug out home.

    Reply
  104. I would say my top prepping goals are: rotating my small food supply; add water storage; and get my husband on board!

    Reply
  105. A major goal is to get organized. Too much crap, too little time, and too hot during the summer to work then organize.

    Reply
  106. 3 goals: set up rain barrel for emergency water (I’d boil it or use solar treatment methods, don’t worry!); goal 2: get regular DIY products going for self-sufficiency and the like e.g. healing balm, pain oil blends, et,; goal three, get drip irrigation setup for my veggie garden, by August and goal four: harvest home grown produce

    Reply
  107. My goals for the year are increase stored food, learn my radio and loose weight

    Reply
  108. Since I’m a full-time RVer and own neither house nor land, my most important goal is to find a spot where I can hunker down. Both my kids live in big cities, so I don’t want to move in with either of them. After that, I need to get a storage facility for all the preps I’ve acquired during the last 4 years, half of which are now stashed at my son’s house. Somewhere in here I also need to organize and inventory those preps.

    Reply
  109. 3 goals I have for the next 6 months are: replace my stored water supplies (use the “old” water to water the garden), begin using the Sun Oven that’s been sitting in a closet for a couple of years, and get more target practice.

    Reply
  110. My top 3 prep goals are:
    1) Switch to more energy efficient appliances + rechargable battries
    2) Buy solar-powered lights and chargers
    3) Cut down on wast and stock up on reusable bags, bottles & containers!

    Reply
  111. Reorganize, Inventory, repackage.

    Reply
  112. I’d like to see how my “harvest” goes, find a spot for cold storage, & organize the supplies I already have.

    Reply
  113. My goals for the next few months

    1) Inventory current food supplies; rotate older items and use up to make room for new.

    2) Organize and inventory current non-perishable prep supplies; restock emergency supplies for both cars.

    3) Purchase large capacity water filter and replacement filters to last for at least a year.

  122. Thank YOU, Gaye, for providing us with valueable information, and for blessing us with your rants & raves. Otherwise, I for one would feel ‘am I alone in this?’. We’ve had our power to go off too many times of late. Once someone ran into a pole, twice by lightening stike, and other times just because the wind blew. Sooo I’ve been looking at everything alternative to electrical power. A few short years ago I lived with no power OR water for 2 years, then was provided with water but for outside use only. My advice is to never move to an area in the boonies and EXPECT power and water. It was during those hard times I realized just how hardy I was. I’d roughed it during floods and a devastating fire but I grew closer to God and firm in Faith. My ONLY regret is wishing I had the knowledge then that I have now. I believe I can weather anything. Now, if I could just get it through my better half’s head to be frugal..

  190. It is a nice item to have and would love to have one for my two college age kids who walk and don’t drive. They both have classes that get out at 11pm. So my daughter walks back to dorms on campus with her friends but my son has a two mile walk from a city high rise to a apartment complex over two miles away. He also has classes that begin at 7am in the morning so a two mile trek back to school. He is in his early twenties and yes I use to call all the time to make sure he was ok. Now I just send text message the get “k” in response. If I don’t hear from him for a few days I invent very long list of why we may not have heard from him for days such as being kidnapped, abducted the aliens or as simple as lying dead in a ditch some where just concerned parents checking in. His friends say he should write a book of “Crazy Things Moms of College Kids Text.
