Power – When You Need It

Blessed with uninterrupted power supply in a city like Mumbai, its ironic that the capital city of New Delhi has to rely on invertors because of the frequent outages. Lights, fans and appliances are no longer the basics, it’s stuff like cellphones, laptops and portable devices that demand energy consumption in a average household. Addressing this need to bridge the gap of supply and consumption is the Ovia, a power reserve that illuminates and juices up devices when needed.


  • Illuminate homes with reserve power battery that charges when the electricity is running.
  • Charge cellphones and laptops with the reserve power.
  • Carry each unit independently, whether if it is to the kitchen or the bedroom.
  • Afford a unit of OVIA in homes because of its low cost to manufacture and package.
  • Access replacement parts (i.e. battery) easily.

  • The lights look beautiful and I like the fact that the internal parts like batteries can be accessed. In this world of Apple design it seems like more and more systems are built to look nice and serviceability takes a back seat.

  • this is a good idea but if millions people recharge their lamps at the same time, the electric grid could not be able to support that load, so, maybe, a solar recharger could be a solution for both problems
