The first primitive lamp was discovered around 70,000 BC, when hollow shells or rocks were filled up with weeds and soaked in animal fat, acting as fuel, for illuminating cave. But there was always the risk of the oil tipping over and getting ignited.
With time, the lamp evolved and in the 18th century, oil lamp with wick was founded. Around the same time, small glass chimneys were added to lamps to protect and control the flow of air to the flame. Early lighting fuels comprised animal fat, vegetable oil or beeswax (later made into candles).
Towards the middle of the 18th century, drilling of petroleum began and kerosene lamps became popular. However, wax candles were expensive and the kerosene lamps generated a lot of smell and smoke, with a risk of starting fire.
With time, methods of illumination evolved and the electric bulb came into existence ushering in modern times. Suddenly with the flick of a switch, man, once and for all, stepped out of the dark ages.
Only a privileged few have access to electricity. Cities see high demand for electricity, leading to power cuts. Villages still have limited or no supply of electricity. This causes both cities and villages to suffer long hours of darkness.
The 21st century brings about the next revolutionary change in the history of illumination! Eveready - the pioneer in torches and batteries - introduces Eveready digiLED Lanterns! Gone are the days when a messy, smelly kerosene lamp or a flickering, weak candlelight, would see you through darkness in times of power insufficiency.
The new Eveready digiLED Lantern is all that these three words convey and more. These lanterns bring to you the convenience of keeping your home lit up even when there's a power cut. Alternatively, the digiLED lanterns can be a welcome device for all those who have no access to power and need other sources of light to go about their day-to-day activities.
With its digiLED technology, unlike a kerosene lamp or candle, the Eveready Lantern gives bright, continuous and unflickering light from long lasting LEDs. All this at the similar running cost per hour, as that of a kerosene lamp or candle. It illuminates a wide area and is ideal for activities like studying, cooking and other in-house work, making it a true light for our homes!
