The Bottle Light

The Bottle Light is exactly as it sounds, a rechargeable LED cork that transforms old bottles into fully-functional lamps. It looks like a large tapered wine cork at first glance, but at the bottom, you'll find a bright white LED light. When placed in a bottle's neck and turned on, the light will shine for up to 3-hours before needing to be recharged - one hour via USB. Want a different color? The white LED light can be filtered by the color of the bottle used, giving you plenty of options for mood lighting. Product page. Continue reading for more images and information.
