Luci Solar Lantern
A brilliant, inventive, and cool gift for anyone
You don't have to be interested in hiking or camping to appreciate what an ingenious invention this little lantern is; you just have to live in a place where the electricity is likely to go out at some point. That's anywhere in the U.S.! This lantern is practically weightless, requires no more storage space than a folded handkerchief, and gives off enough light to read a book in the dark. And, as long as you can expose it to daylight after its 12-hour charge is spent, there's no need to worry about having a supply of fresh batteries on hand. I hope Sahalie continues to offer these. If not, I'll find some other way to get more.

Worth the money
I purchesed 6 of these, 5 were for Christmas presents for my children who are avid campers, and 1 for me in case of a power outtage. All of my children were absolutly thrilled with them and wondered where I had got them, of course I told them. When I ordered them, over the phone, and talking to the gentleman, he told me that he had not seen this item before and that he was also a camper and was going to order one himself.
I think they are wonderful and very much worth the money and really give off a lot of bright light..

Solar powered, compact, transparent. I have given them to a number of people and their question is...where did you get this???

A great item...small, lightweight...fantastic for backpacking...but also handy to keep in the car. ..keep handy during power outages. Love the company's mission to bring a light source to areas of the world with no electricity.

Looks cute and potentially useful
Certainly much safer than a gas lantern, with no nasty batteries to dispose of, this solar lantern appears to be 'green-ish' (although it still requires petroleum products to manufacture its shell). Its brightness may not be strong enough to illuminate the reading of a book from across a table, but at your shoulder it could easily. Two solar lanterns suspended from above, could light a game of cards at a camping table.
I'm keeping my inflated, hanging near a window with diffused light, so it will be fully charged in case of emergency power outage at home.

Love it! One clever light weight camp light
The Luci Light is one clever little portable light for outdoor adventures. Perfect for hanging in a tent, sitting on a picnic table or providing an awesome light weight backpack camp light and can do it all in the rain,
In addition, the manufacturers mindful efforts to distribute the light to needy people in third world communities, at little to no cost, gets a big thumbs up too.

We live in Michigan and just had a power outage. Bought this because I thought it would be a nice way to add light the next time this happens. It is lightweight and folds down to a small flat circle. Will come handy when the lights are out. Not maybe the best thing for everyday use because one has to blow it up to inflate. Overtime this would cause spit issues.

What a cool item!
I wished the description said that the lantern was inflatable.....I expected a folding lantern not one you blew up. It is still a great item.
