Solar Powered Lantern Makes For Eco-Friendly Camping

By Chris Scott Barr

When I go camping, I do my best to keep things as low-tech as possible. After all, half the point of spending a few nights in the wilderness is to get away from people and technology. Of course there are a few essential pieces of equipment that are almost a necessity (no, I’m not talking about your iPhone). One of these is definitely a lantern of some sort. I have a batter-operated one, which does the job, except when I forget to bring a spare battery.

If you’re looking for a more eco-friendly way to shed some light on your camping trip, you might want to check out this K-Light LED Lantern from PiSAT Solar. Instead of using a large throw-away battery or even burning oil for light, it gets its juice from the sun. A large solar panel is included, which is big enough to net you 1-2 hours of light per hour of clear sunlight. You can choose from high or low settings which uses 16 and 8 LEDs respectively. The $50 price is really reasonable, especially when I’ve seen regular LED lanterns go for almost as much.

    All a bit high tech for my liking. I like camping with the old paraffin lamps where you have to scrabble around in the dark for a match!
