New Revision - Kulumi FM / GC now including a Solar Panel


2013-10-11 - We are excited to share with you the latest developments from our side.

The HTG team has made some major improvements on Kulumi and now have two lower cost versions - Kulumi GC and Kulumi FM. The lamps are now all water resistant and include a smaller solar panel as a standard part of the package. We also simplified the audio interface and made major improvements to the button responsiveness. See below in blue for a description of all the improvements.

Kulumi Different Editions

The different Kulumi versions released are:

  • Kulumi MX - This is the original Kulumi. It now also includes a 3W solar panel that ships inside the box
  • Kulumi GC - This one has 50% less light (200 lumens) and 50% less battery. It includes 4GB memory and a small 1.5W solar panel
  • Kulumi FM - This one has 50% less light (200 lumens) and 50% less battery. It does NOT include a 4GB memory, but it does include FM and the ability to play content via the USB drive. It includes a small 1.5W solar panel


A breakdown of the improvements to Kulumi:

  • The charge indicator lights up red when the battery voltage drops below 30%
  • We have changed the internal button hardware to make it more responsive and humidity proof
  • We have eliminated the hot button content management system. The system was too complicated and we opted for a simple content access method with no hot button.
  • You can now charge Kulumi in both the ON / OFF state - We have improved water resistance. You can now splash water on it without any issues.
  • All 3 versions include a small solar panel.
