Chicago, IL (August 13th, 2019): Chicago-based solar startup LuminAID has announced the newest addition to its line of solar-powered, phone charging lanterns. The PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger is the company's most efficient lantern yet, and features a self-inflating design that allows for easy expansion with one simple twisting motion. 

The PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger is launching as an exclusive for REI customers, available chain-wide in all 152 stores. Following the success of the PackLite line at REI, which recently named the PackLite Max 2-in-1 Phone Charger as the best lantern for backpacking, LuminAID saw the retailer as an ideal launch partner for its latest innovation. REI members are some of the most avid and experienced outdoors enthusiasts, and LuminAID is thrilled to put the PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger in their hands first.

The LuminAID team is eager to release the PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger, the company’s most efficient charger yet. “LuminAID is always looking to do bigger, better, and brighter things with our solar-powered designs,” co-founder Anna Stork said. “Based on feedback from our customers and humanitarian partners, we’ve shortened the solar charge time without sacrificing power.” The PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger reflects this drive for progress by enhancing the technology that makes LuminAID unique in the solar industry.

The PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger follows both the PackLite Max 2-in-1 Phone Charger and the PackLite Hero 2-in-1 Supercharger, becoming LuminAID’s latest solar lantern with integrated phone charging capabilities. This product retains the aspects of the PackLite Hero that made it so impressive, including its brightness and unparalleled run time. However, the PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger excels even further by charging as fast as the PackLite Max 2-in-1 Phone Charger, allowing users to continue their adventures with less wait time. Owners of a PackLite Titan 2-in-1 Phone Charger can:

  • Fully charge the lantern in just 16 hours via a highly efficient solar panel, which reduces charge times by ten hours due to a 60% increase in surface area
  • Inflate the lantern completely with an intuitive twisting motion
  • Plug in their cell phones or other USB-compatible devices for 2 to 3 full charges
