Quality lighting is an important, yet underrated, component of a pleasant, productive work environment. Not only is lighting important for sight, but a well-lit environment can also enhance alertness and improve mood. The Jump Lamp provides much-needed lighting in a number of different situations via a LED light source powered by a adaptable combination of solar, battery, and outlet power. It can also be used as a portable power source for other electronic devices.
The development of the Jump Lamp’s function and features focused on the direct user experience by incorporating simple, intuitive controls and simple information displays. The +/- toggle control for the light, along with the dimmer meter and the charge indication are the result of this focus.

The product function had to be designed to also maximize the opportunity for the lamp to actually be used. Specifically, the lamp had to be designed to maximize its charging potential. This involved optimization of the solar collector placement as well as the incorporation and location of the charge indicator lights.
The Jump lamp includes both power input and output outlets. These outlets are mini-USB compatible to allow for maximum use with other devices.
The power input allows the Jump Lamp to be plugged into a wall outlet for emergency charging or on-demand power via an included adapter. The USB compatible input also allows the Jump Lamp to be powered from a computer’s powered USB port.
The power outlet allows the Jump Lamp’s solar collector cell to be used to power other devices.
Portability is the driving force behind the Jump Lamp’s design. However, portability was not allowed to compromise the aesthetics of the product. The folding arms tuck neatly beneath the base, preserving its top surface, and allowing the visibility of the arms to signal their function.
