Default Luci 2.0 Outdoor Inflatable Lantern

I'm just back from an overnight camp where the midges and me were on a first name basis.
We forgot the NT Perfume..

I being a 4wd camper, I just love the gadgets...I have been chasing a decent Lantern for a while...and I have found one.
It's not conventional.
It's different...very different.

It's called the Luci 2.0 Inflatable Lantern.

What I like with this particular LED light, is that it incapsulates the "Camping Ethos.."

1/. It's very light weight. 10 out of 10...
2/. Very compact to carry and pack up...10 out of 10
3/. Very Very cheap to run....10 out of 10
4/. Nearly Unbreakable...9 out of 10
5/. Excellent performance...10 out of 10
6/. Very easy to clean...8 out of 10...
6/. Very Reliable...10 out of 10

But most importantly...very reasonably priced for its real time performance!!!

You have to inflate the Lantern by blowing it up, just like that pool toy you did for the kids!
Yep, you have read right...
...You have to blow it up..

It is solar charged, so there is no batteries to buy.
This lantern is so compact, you can place it on your car dashboard as you drive along and it will get charged.
It takes about 3 to 4 hours to full recharge from dead flat...
On the maximum power setting, I got about 4 hours of decent light, on the lower setting ad about another 1 to 2 hours.
It has a built in indicator, so you can see how much the inbuilt batteries have in reserve.
The light has 3 power settings, low, high and alternate (Flashing).
The performance of this lantern light is very extraordinary and quite impressive considering its simplistic design.
Yes, it has a few foibles, but these in the lantern's over design are not too much.
1/. The Lantern can be a bit finicky to inflate initially, but once you get the idea working, there will be little hassles.
2/. The plastic can get dirty at times, but a quick wipe over with a moist rag...all clean again.

This lantern has some serious LED light output.

Bought.

Not so much because I need it, but because I like what the company is trying to achieve.

And it's a camping gadget that lights up...

Thanks for posting.
