Green House has proudly introduced its latest eco-friendly product in the form of the GH-LED10WBW LED lantern. What makes this LED lantern special is that it runs on salty water (salt + water) instead of electricity. A single charge of salty water offers enough juice for up to 8-hour of light. The salt/ water combo acts as an electrolyte with the magnesium (negative electrode) and carbon (positive electrode) rods inside the lantern. You should change the power rods every 120-hour of usage.
