The Nature Power Essex Solar Lamp Post has an obvious, old-school charm, but when you see how it takes advantage of some new technologies, you'll love it even more. The body of this clasically styled lamp is crafted from rust-proof aluminum with a powder-coat finish. Inside panes of frosted glass you get bright LED lights, powered by a rechargeable battery. But how do you recharge the battery? That's accomplished by a group of solar panels located on the very top of the lamp. With a full charge, you can get six hours of light on the High setting, or 12 hours on Low mode. No wiring is required, just an appreciation for the classics and a love for modern, clean-energy technology.
