Lantern Needs No Batteries And Runs On Salt Water
I recently spotted a unique lantern that needs no batteries because it runs on salt water. All you need is a little ocean water to get the light going. It sells for $49.95 and is listed in the Imagine Concepts catalog (23011 Moulton Pkway, Bldg #D-One, Laguna Hills, Ca. 92653 ph 714 587-1300). The ad stated that the high intensity flourescent Salt Water Lantern is activated by placing a tablespoon of salt dissolved in water into the lantern's battery case, which is fitted with two anode power plates. The energy created by the interation between the plates and the salt creates a low level voltage that lights the bulbs. Each set of plates lasts for at least 8 hrs. of use. Comes with replacement power plates. (J. Debus, P.O. Box 250, Cheyenne Wels, Co. 80810)
