About this project
Imagine the Possibilities — Light Different.
The new Ellum Solar is an intuitive smart light, embedded with sensors that illuminate the dark when motion is detected. Meaningfully designed, the Ellum attaches magnetically and has a touch dimmer to manually adjust the brightness of the light, wherever you need it. Thoughtfully simple, a solar panel spans the bottom of Ellum, making charging wire free and always available.
Designed to the Last Detail.
Reworked, refined and distilled, the new Ellum is inventive design that is purposefully formed. The body and mount conceals the aligning neodymium magnets, allowing the Ellum to be adjustable and easily detachable. The underside conceals a huge solar panel and LED diffuser. Precision made from solid hardwood, it is handcrafted in-house by Feltmark in Los Angeles.
Charging made simple.
1 Day Charge = 6 Months of Use.
Designed to be — Light Your Way.
The Ellum is much more than a motion sensor light. With features that matter, it's bright enough to be a desk lamp, and portable enough to be a light you have with you anywhere you go. Being wireless and solar charging, it's there where you need it, adding convenience and safety when needed.
Where you need it,
When you need it,
And its so much more...
How would you use the Ellum Solar?
- Motion Sensor - illuminates when motion is detected when dark.

Risks and challenges
Ellum Solar is a honest and skillfully crafted product. Made from quality materials, it requires specialized manufacturing and knowledge to execute.
For the past 4 years, we have developed and manufactured our own designs. Beginning from developing components, to creating our own tools, to building out the infrastructure needed for production. Our approach has been to combine manufacturing into the design process.
Ellum Solar is the second iteration of Ellum Smart Lights, with the original being released in 2015. From the lessons we have learned in the production of the original Ellum, it has allowed us to refine the Ellum even further to make a smarter and more affordable product. Working together with our electronics manufacture, we have continued to push what the future of lighting can be.
We are excited and truly humbled to be able to share this next step with you. From everyone at Feltmark, THANK YOU!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Ellum operates upto 6 months as a motion sensor, illuminating for 20 second intervals when motion is detected when dark. For continuous use, Ellum will operate up to 4 hour at 240 lumens.
The mount can either be attached through 2 screws or the 3M double stick tape which are both provided.
We will provide a 90 day warranty on the Ellum Solar as long as it being used under normal conditions. We can’t provide a warranty if you drop or break the product. However, we will repair or replace any defective unit at no cost to you.
Once the Kickstarter campaign is over we will send a survey at which point you can pick between the American Walnut or the Hard Maple. And for those who purchased the limited edition versions, it will either be African Wenge or Zebra Wood.
Customs fees vary depending on the country you are in so we would recommend checking with your customs office before you become a backer. The full amount of your pledge will be reflected on the invoice in your package. We won’t be able to provide a refund if you reject the shipment due to customs fees.
Unfortunately we do not accept returns from Kickstarter projects. We try to offer these rewards at the best price we can which means we aren't in a position to offer returns on a product that took us several months to bring to market. You are welcome to cancel your pledge at any point before we ship for a full refund.
