LuminAID Solar LED Lantern Folds Flat, Lasts All Day

LuminAID-PackLite-12

When you step away from the modern world, full of taken-for-granted conveniences, it’s always a good idea to prepare yourself properly. Spending any amount of time in the wilderness requires not only a bit of courage, but some decent illumination at night. The LuminAID Pack Lite 12 Inflatable Solar Lantern is a waterproof light source that folds flat for easy storage, but once turned on, will provide you with up to 16 hours of brightness on a single charge. This charge, incidentally, is easily obtained by leaving the thing in the sun for 7 hours. The 12 bright LEDs contained inside are also able to flash in an emergency beacon mode, making it easier to find you at night if you ventured too far off the path and can’t find your own way back. Considering it’s only $23, it wouldn’t make any sense to make this an essential “must-pack” item for anyone contemplating extended time outdoors.

    You mean it WOULD make sense to have this as an essential “must pack” item. Not sure how you listing it as a cheap price, that it wouldn’t be a must pack item with all the good features it has.

    Brain flatulence….. Wouldn’t it instead of it wouldn’t. “May I have it in the form of a question, Bob?”
    Geez….. You wanna take him out back and behead him? I knew what he meant… I do that crap all the time when I’m typing. I leave out the first word, or the first letter….

    Looks like a pretty decent light source. 2 to 1 ain’t too shabby if the output is good. Other question is diffuser material. How cleanable / stainable is it? It’s gonna get dirty. Can it be dismantled and washed, or do you just brush it off? Waterproof, or resistant? If you leave it out in the rain will it destroy it? Or a heavy dew? Probably can’t dunk it, right?
