These LED Bottle Lights Are a Real Corker

A rechargeable cork-shaped LED light turns your empty bottles into pretty glowing lamps.

Here’s a product to tuck into your “reduce, reuse, recycle, repurpose” ideas file: a rechargeable cork-shaped bottle light that turns your old, empty bottles into romantic lamps you can use to light your dinner table or those backyard barbecues you’ll be throwing when the weather (finally) warms.

The bright LED lights, developed by a company called Suck UK and available (for $15) on its website as well as on Foodiggity and on Amazon, fully charge (and recharge) via USB (in your charger, laptop or other device) in one hour and give you three uninterrupted hours of clean bottled light. (A red indicator light lets you know it’s charging.) Powered by an internal polymer lithium ion battery, the bottle light, which is topped by sustainably harvested cork from Portugal, is safe for both indoor and outdoor use.

Now you know what to do with all those empties from your last party: Use them to light your next party!
