In Q3, 2010, 2C Light Company were proud to supply Solar Light Caps to Yamaha Japan, to be sold through their marine and motorcycle brands, Y’s Gear.

We are told that they will be very useful on the boat at night and for improving safety for motorcyclists.

They will be very useful to check oil, batteries,  and electric board in the night.

We have also heard from Japan that there are plans for a  group of people who are volunteering to clean Mt Fuji and want to use the product.

Sales of the 2C SLC through Yamaha outlets has begun.

Earthquake !!

“One of our 2C Solar Light Caps was close at hand when the quake hit as I had been using it to read my book in bed. We had some broken glass on the bedroom floor and the dog was in there with us. Having light instantly saved both us and the dog from possible injury and continued to give us comforting light until the sun came up.”

Gina Payne  (Reprinted from the Christchurch Press)

“One of the Locomotive Engineers had his by the bed. After the shake, with the house coming down around his ears, he donned the hat, and was able to quickly find his children and exit the place. He credits your hat as saving them from injury and possibly worse.”

Lindsay Gough

“Sooooooo handy in earthquake, handy everywhere actually, but a godsend Saturday 4.35 am. Cheers.”

Earth Hour 2010

Steve Gurney’s new windy adventure


Steve certainly is a man of action, and with his support team and kite making friend, Peter Lynn, they are seen here getting ready to attempt the land speed record for kite buggies

Once again the people of New Zealand and the world turned off their lights for an hour to focus on reducing climate change, pollution and use of fossil fuels.

What I cant understand is why they often light candles which are not a cleaner energy source.

We celebrated with an Earth Hour party, lit only by 2C Solar Light Caps, recorded here as part of our Student Video competition.  Please rate it !

Robin Visser and Christophe Berthomier successfully completed a trek through the 7 Emirates of the UAE in 7 days and raised $21,000 for the Japanese Tsunami Victims.

They both really liked the caps and it helped them a lot on their journey, “the hat is brilliant, I wore it all the time” was just one of the things Robin Visser had to say. Christophe Berthomier said “the caps are great and we really put them to the test. Comfortable, light and very convenient at night as the lights work very well and last longer than we had expected”

7 Emirate Trek Fundraiser

Celebrities dug deep on Tuesday to send 2C Solar Light Caps to Japanese children orphaned by the recent tsunami.

The HOPE For Orphans Japan fundraising event at Tokomona restaurant in Surrey Hills, has raised a total of over $76,000 to support orphanages in a remote area of Iwate Prefecture. The night was supported by personalities including Liam Neeson, Jimmy Barnes, Sam Neill, fashion designer Akira Isogawa, and rugby legend George Gregan, to name but a few.

At the fundraising event a Solar Light Cap auction was led by Australian actor Bryan Brown. He asked attendees to buy the award-winning GreenTech caps for Japanese orphans, whose lives have been torn apart by the recent earthquake and tsunami. Under the spotlight of his own 2C, he passed caps round the restaurant to come back filled with cash. A born-and-bred Aussie, Brown quipped, “Where some countries invent penicillin, New Zealanders invent Solar Light Caps”      more

The MadwaySouth Team

Madwaysouth’s amazing sahara challenge

Before the Mad Way South crew, no one had attempted to cross the Sahara desert by wind power alone.

Few would be crazy enough to believe that it could even be achieved. The   Mad Way South team comprised of four adventure junkies as they race their Kite Buggies across 2200 kilometres of the Sahara desert, accompanied by their trusty 2C Solar Light Caps.
