NowLight achieves ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review from Trusted Reviews

Trusted Reviews are a go-to place on the internet to get a low-down on gadgets and technology, and how they really work away from all the marketing spiel. We’re really proud to have NowLight earning a 4 star review from Trusted Review’s Home Technology Editor David Ludlow.

David set up the lamp and used it at his home, and the review has photos exploring his garden and fence in full covid-19 era photography. We hope David enjoys his NowLight out in the big wide world shortly.

You can read the full review here, with his verdict being:

A powerful and bright portable light, the Nowlight lets you charge it via solar, USB or using the pull cord on the front. It’s bright enough to light up a tent, shed or even be used as a handy outside light. Expandable satellite lamps let you take light further, although they feel a touch cheap compared to the main light. Even so, this is a great light for camping or areas that don’t have power.

I discovered your lights by searching how to do when there is a failure with electricity.

Then I looked for air powered light and found these articles :

” Compressed air energy storage is the sustainable and resilient alternative to chemical batteries, with much longer life expectancy, lower life cycle costs, technical simplicity, and low maintenance. ”

“In the 19th century, Paris had a system of pipes installed for municipal distribution of compressed air to power machines and to operate generators for lighting. ”

“The pneumatic lamp presumably was used in the Ruhr-area coal mining industry as an underground source of light in the 1940s. Today it belongs to the LWL-Industrial Museum’s collection and is used for demonstrational purposes in the visitors’ coal mine exhibit of the LWL-Industrial Museum Nightingale colliery.
A small turbine rotating under air pressure drives a generator which provides the electrical energy for the light. from

To inflate my tires I use a foot pump like those

I didn’t find any existing light which is powered by compressed air which one pump to charge or when needed. I imagine a big bicycle tyre, on one hand linked to a floor pump, and on the other hand to the gravity light. I pump to inflate the tyre. Later I do something and the air flows through the gravity light and gives some light.

What did I miss ? Because if I didn’t miss anything I think you would have done it already.


Hi Steph! Thanks for the comment 🙂

The reason why we moved away from GravityLight was basically the lack of potential energy (a physics term) from a bag of rocks, to generate enough power to meet the demands from customers in 2020 – namely brighter lights and ability to charge a phone via USB.

At scale these things can still achieve results. Compressed air is being used as a ‘battery’ to store excess electricity from renewables to be turned into power via generators when it is needed. So you’re definitely not missing much, it’s definitely a thing!
