What if I told you that you could heat your dormitories without electricity and that too at a minimal cost of about 10 cents a day?

It concentrates heat in a terracotta dome, radiating its heat to all corners of the room even after the candles have blown out. It not only makes your home cozy but also saves the planet’s vulnerable resources and gives your room a beautiful showpiece.
