A versatile solar lighting system for sea nomads

Typically living in stilt houses at sea, the sea nomads of Southeast Asia have no electrical grid to connect to. This versatile solar lighting system allows for light during dark hours. The aluminum lamp can be hung or suspended in different ways inside of the stilt house, using cotton straps and steel buckles/clips. The battery and solar charge controller can be hung in the same fashion as the lamp, with canvas fabric pouches. The solar panel can be attached to the roof of the stilt house using rope or thread. Use cases for the lamp include cooking, fishing, repairing tools and socializing.
