Use a 2-Liter Bottle as a 50 Watt Light Bulb lightbulb hack / Utilice una botella de 2 litros como un corte de luz bombilla de 50 vatios bombilla

faro0485, you wrote: "Actually if you add some salt and a couple of electrodes in the bottle, you could run power off that water."
If this would work, and the energy stores, then the light could be turned on at night. How exactly do we try to do this? I'm going to see if we can do this in Guatemala where I live part time. CatherineTodd2 at gmail dot com.

The solar bottle bulb is just a piece of 1.5 liter of soda or softdrinks plastic bottle filled with a solution of purified water and liquid bleach that harness solar power or that provide light from the sun. Per solar bottle bulb provide 55 watts of light from the light of the sun during daylight and much even higher if the sun do really shines so brightly during the day. Moreover, every solar bottle bulb last up to five years before the solution on the bottle can be replaced. Wow, that is really could save a large percentage of your money for electricity bills if you are using light bulbs during daylight.

The solar bottle bulb is fixed in a hole on the roof with half top exposed on the sun outside. The light from the sun then refracts into the solution in the bottle which creates pure white light inside the house.
