The Berkey LED Base is made of a durable copolyester and can be used for the Big Berkey® and Berkey Light™ gravity purification systems.
The base allows these systems to be situated anywhere on a flat surface and eliminates the requirement that the systems be placed on the edge of a table or counter. This Berkey LED Base comes with eight bright cobalt blue lights and rechargeable batteries.
The LED lamps make the perfect night-light, emergency light, or camping light. The LED lamps are directional so the base can also be used as a stand-alone emergency flashlight.
They come in white, blue or multi-colored.
LED lights are unique in that they require very small amounts of energy and yet are very bright, in fact, the LED’s can be spotted for over one mile in dark environments. This enables the LED to be illuminated all night long on a single charge of the internal rechargable batteries.
The Berkey LED Base comes complete with a 110V AC adapter allowing the base to be powered by a standard 110V AC current. (To use outside the US, a Step Down Voltage Converter may be required; please check your local voltage requirements first). When the LED’s are switched off, the 110V AC adapter automatically begins recharging the batteries.
When utilizing the optional Berkey Battery Adapter™ case, the low energy LED’s will provide light (8 hours per night) for approximately two weeks on a single set of four AA alkaline batteries. Incredibly, you get two weeks of emergency light for the price of one set of small AA batteries.
When standard electrical power is unavailable, the optional Berkey MP Solar™ charger can be used to recharge the Berkey® Base batteries during daylight hours for later use at night. The Berkey MP Solar™ charger also has its own internal batteries which can also be used to power the Berkey® Base or other aplications.
