Lumir's LED lamp is powered by a tea candle, not batteries
developing world: a light that powers itself from a candle. The Lumir throws off enough light to allow users to read by it, or use it as a way to provide soft, yet ample light to illuminate a small area. Fifteen lumens of light are available through four small LEDs, which while it might not sound like much (a single candle casts roughly 12 to 13 lumens), it is certainly enough to read. What makes Lumir better than a candle is you can choose how that light is directed: “Spot” focuses the light on a specific area, while “Mood” gives a more even and omnidirectional candle-like glow.
