What Customers Are Saying About the Titan

My favorite LuminAID

"I have other LuminAID lights, but this is by far my favorite. I love how bright it is. I use it daily to illuminate a small cabin without electricity, I can even read at night and not even on the brightest setting. I also like that this model has Velcro on the strap instead of the two difficult snaps on other models...much easier to use."

Perfect gift

"Perfect for hiking, to keep in the car for emergencies, and to have in the house for power outages. The product is exactly what is shown. The red night light is excellent. Highly recommend."

Amazing product, highly recommended

"Amazing product, we have several on our boat and they are invaluable. We can use them to charge phones etc without turning on the generator and the red light option is extremely useful at night."

Love This Product!--5 star

"I love these lights! They are so handy and the ability to charge my phone through solar power is the best! No kidding, everyone should have one of these in their home."

Close to Perfection

"I purchased this solar light & phone charger for the upcoming hurricane, as well as for the frequent power outages that we get in NC. The light is bright at the highest level and has several levels down to about that of a night light. We immediately ordered 2 more!"

LOVE this & will buy more

"This folds flat for storage, which is awesome, and opens into a nice lantern. The light is bright on high and perfect as an almost-night-light on low. For a power outage it works so well. You can charge a device if you need and still have power for the light. GREAT for gifts! "

Love my Luminaid lights!

"These lanterns are so bright and I love that they can charge my phone. I bought for emergencies but we have been using on the patio as well. They are durable and fold flat for easy storage which is a huge plus! Have already shared with friends and family!"

See it in Action:


Buttons and Indicator Lights

Use the Power Buttonto turn on your Titan, adjust the brightness, and turn it off.


Use the Battery Buttonto check the battery charge level, and initiate a charge to your phone.


The Charge Indicator LEDlights up when the solar panel is in light. It will shine brightly when your Titan is getting a strong charge.


The Red/White Switchlets you choose red or white light. You can even use the switch before you turn the lantern on, to protect your night vision in the dark.


Introducing: Red Light Mode

The Titan is our first product to offer a Red Light Mode for night vision!
Red light is easier on your eyes at night, and great for reading, stargazing, or movie night!


How to Recharge Your Titan

There are two ways to recharge your Titan:

1. Charge it outdoors by solar power. This should take 16-20 hours in direct sun. During the winter, or in overcast weather, solar charging will take longer.

Note: we do not recommend solar charging indoors, as windows will filter light.

2. Charge it indoors by USB input. Use the red micro-USB recharging cable that came with your Titan. This should take 2-4 hours.

Tip: When the red Charge Indicator LED is shining brightly, that means your Titan is getting a strong charge!

For more charging tips and troubleshooting, please visit our Product Support page:

A Bigger Panel for a Faster Charge

We designed the Titan with a larger solar panel for faster charging.
You can get up to 100 hours of light from just 16-20 hours of charging in the sun.


How to Charge Your Phone

The Titan is compatible with all major cell phones, including iPhone! Because it provides power through a USB output port, you can use your own phone cable. Plus, it will also charge tablets, cameras, and other small electronics that charge by USB.

 

Step 1: Take the USB cable you normally use to charge your phone, and plug the small end into your phone. Plug the large end into the Titan's USB port.
Note: if you have an Android phone, you may be able to use the red micro-USB recharging cable that came with your Titan. For all other phones, including iPhone, you should use the cable that came with your phone.

Step 2: Press the red Battery Button to initiate a charge. You should see your phone start to charge.

Troubleshooting: Not Getting Enough Charge?

You can check the battery level on your PackLite Titan by pressing the small red Battery Button. If the Titan is on low battery, it won't charge your phone for more than a few minutes.
