Frequently Asked Questions
This is a valid question, and we’ve been asked this many times before.
Although we want all our items made here in the Philippines, logistical limitations and financial viability prevent us from doing so.
Our goal is to provide you high-quality products that won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
Paliwanag Lights is an #allPinoy outfit. All employees are #Filipino. Every time you buy from us, you #supportlocal. For that, we are proud.
If it’s not too obvious to you (YAYY!), Aklamp is a portmanteau of ‘aklat’ (book) and lamp. Your Aklamp lights up once you open up the ‘pages’. It is more magical seen than read, so consider buying one for yourself now!
Your Aklamp is chargeable via microUSB. Charging wire is included with your purchase. You can use any USB adaptor you have.
- Charging time: 3-4 hours
- Battery-use time: 6-8 hours
- Charging time: 2-3 hours
- Battery-use time: 4-6 hours
The cover is made of wood, up to you if you fancy light wood (Maple) or dark finish (Walnut). The ‘pages’ are made of tyvek.
Tyvek is a cloth material that has similar qualities to paper. Although it can be folded and hold its shape, tyvek is water resistant and is more durable. BUT since Aklamp has electronics inside, please don’t let it get wet.
