I remember camping as a child. Pack the tent, the cooler full of sandwiches, the sleeping bags and that old Coleman fuel lantern. Remember it? A glass shield?? Perfect for packing in a full trunk and then walking through the woods with it…that never got broken. and if you made it to the campsite with the glass intact, you still had the lantern mantles to deal with. They were little mesh bags that you had to burn first and basically make them ash that would also break off leaving you with no light.
Fast forward to today and you have much easier tools for “roughing it” outdoors. The Bright Outdoors solar powered camping lantern is one of these new devices.
This lantern can be charged via a USB cable or by the free solar energy provided by the sun. This lantern is also feature packed with some really cool functions!
- Use it as a flashlight.
- Two brightness modes.
- Lantern mode
- Emergency phone charger via the USB outlet
- Emergency flashing light mode
On a full charge this lantern will run for 5 hours on high or 10 hours on low. Using USB power the light will charge fully in 4-6 hours. From the discharged state the light will run for 15-30 minutes on an hour charge from the sun. This is perfect in a pinch.
The collapsible design makes it easy to store and easy to switch from flashlight mode to lantern mode quickly. It also comes with a hanging hook.
This will be a permanent fixture in my camping supply box. I will also be buying one for each of our cars to have available in an emergency.
I highly recommend you get one. I received a discount on this light to provide my honest review and evaluation, but you can get one, too by following the link below.
