A candle caught into the mouth of a wine bottle tends to make for intriguing accent lighting, but this invention takes the idea into the 21st century. The rechargeable Bottlelight, designed by Steve Gates, sticks into the mouth of any empty bottle to generate a beautiful – and very unusual – tabletop lighting characteristic.
Candles stuck into bottles can always be blown out by the wind (if you occur to be outdoors) or trigger a fire. The Bottlelight is far safer. The light-creating component sticks down into the bottle even though the “cork” holds it in place. The cork hides the USB plug and pulls off effortlessly when you’re prepared to recharge the light.
The quite bright LED is waterproof, so even if you for some cause made a decision to stick it into a bottle that nevertheless contained liquid the light would very likely survive (even though we really don’;t suggest it, it would possibly appear really cool). The light would be a fun way to highlight a collection of desirable old bottles – but however you use it, it’s a great way to recycle empty bottles into some thing useful.
