SolPals MoonBeams Nightlight Review


The blue light is so calm and soothing, it gives off just enough light.  My daughter loves the flower design.


I did not believe that the light would actually last the entire night but it did, It was just as bright when I went in the room at 5am as it was at 8pm the evening before.

I have been using the Sol Pals night light for 3 weeks now and it has worked off the solar power the whole time.  I never even installed the batteries.

I will recommend the Sol Pals night light to all my friends, its easy to install, doesnt waste energy and gives off a beautiful light.  I love the fact I was able to put  the night light high in the window so my child cant play with it.  The fact it turns on and off by itself allowed me to install it and forget about it.

SolPals began in 2008 as the brainchild of founders/inventors Ron and Chantele Gustaveson. The couple was inspired by a documentary about children of impoverished inner-city families, living in darkness because they couldn’t afford electricity. Having four children tehmselves, their hearts went out to these kids who came home to the dark, day after day. They knew there had to be a way to help. From a passion for solar and wind energy, SolPals was born. The intent was to combine two concepts: solar power and nightlights. The result was two unique lights:
MoonBeams…solar-powered hybrid nightlights for children
FlexLight…solar-powered hybrid utility light

SolPals’ primary focus is creating solar-energy products relevant to today’s daily lifestyle. “Our mission is to light up the night with the power of the sun!”

Through much research and development, SolPals has invented a light that uses both a RECHARGABLE battery and two backup, alkaline batteries. The reason for multiple battery types is to insure adequate power. Solar power only works with adequate SUNLIGHT. The longer the solar cells are exposed to daylight, the longer the charge. Conversely, less daylight means less charge. All SolPals lights have the option to be either completely solar-powered or to use built-in hybrid technology. The hybrid sensor first utilizes all stored solar energy, then, if necessary, automatically switches to the backup alkaline batteries.

Ron and Chantele wanted a product that would be fun, functional and educational for kids. They also wanted a company that could facilitate the idea of “kids helping kids.” How best to do this? SolPals contributes a portion of proceeds to a charitable foundation, Project Share the Light. Project Share the Light focuses on solar lighting solutions for children in impoverished areas around the world, because NO child should be left in the dark.
