Bright Outdoors - Solar Camping Lantern


My son loves to have "camp outs" in his room so we try to set up chairs and blankets to make a fort/tent in the middle of the floor. We lay down our pillows, we turn on some TV and we just hang out. He's just about four now so he still wants a little light. I didn't want anything crazy so I tried to find a little low power lantern. It was a little bright for in there, but I just hung a dark sheet over it and it was perfect. The land handle on the top made it so easy to hang.

Since it collapses to just about the size of a hockey puck, it's easy to store in any camping bag or a hiking backpack. The fact that it is solar powered is massively convenient and should be a must-have for anyone who is going camping or even those who consider themselves a "prepper." Out at night, this lantern is pretty bright. Don't get me wrong, it's by no means a flashlight but it absolutely provides adequate light all around. They say you get about 10 hours of life out of it, but mine was closer to 10.5 hours.

Overall, this is a very versatile unit which is great for camping/hiking/building a fort in your son's room.
