Sanyo eneloop lamp

Sanyo on Tuesday announced it will soon release its eneloop lamp, the ENL-Y1S. Meant to promote reuse, the device acts as a desk lamp when stood upright, and automatically turns into a flashlight when lifter to 90 degrees, with the light source coming from the base of the lamp. A third mode, called Healing light by Sanyo, is turned on by pressing down on the lamp and results in a cool blue illumination.

Brightness in either stand-up lamp mode can be adjusted simply by twisting the lamp on its own axis. The lamp runs on two included eneloop nickel-metal hydride AA batteries, which are charged on a non-metal contact base, with the process taking 12 hours.

The eneloop lamp will be released in mid-September for the equivalent of $155 in Japan. [via Impress]
