Forget the batteries and take the light with you.

"Cute, compact, collapsible, the LuminAID solar lantern is ready for any adventure, big or small.
"When night falls and power is nowhere to be found, LuminAID lanterns are a light in the darkness."
"Bought it for use during emergencies, I've been recommending it to friends and family."
How It Works
Charge it in the sun or by USB -- no batteries needed!
Energy stored in the internal battery is used to power the lantern's LED's when you need light at night.
Twist and compress for easy storage or charging on-the-go!
All three models are the same size and weight. The main difference is that each model has different colored light output:
Firefly: Warm White
Spectra: Multi-Color (9 different color modes, including white)

LuminAID solar lanterns and power lanterns can be recharged by solar power, or by micro-USB input.
A micro-USB recharging cable is included with each device.
For charge times and run times for each model, visit our Product Specs page.
You can solar charge your LuminAID in cloudy or overcast weather, but be aware that it will take longer to charge. We do not recommend solar charging indoors, because windows will filter light and reduce charging efficiency.
LuminAID's 2-in-1 Power Lantern models charge phones. The basic solar lantern models (Nova, Spectra, and Firefly) do not charge phones.
The Nova, Spectra, and Firefly solar lantern models all weigh 5oz.
The Nova, Spectra, and Firefly solar lantern models inflate into a 4.75" cube.
They pack flat to 4.75" x 4.75" x 1.0" for easy storage and charging on-the-go.
As Seen On Shark Tank!
The LuminAID Story
We were inspired to invent the LuminAID light after the 2010 Haiti Earthquake. We wanted to create something that could pack flat, was waterproof and long-lasting, and powered by the sun -- no batteries needed!
It's been a wild ride since then. You might have seen us on Shark Tank! We got our big break when we pitched the "Sharks" and made a deal with Mark Cuban.
To date, LuminAID lanterns have been used by nonprofits in over 100 countries, and we're proud to that our products are also used by consumers like you -- for camping, emergency preparedness, and backyard fun.
Great Lantern! A Must for Texans!!!
Much more rugged than I expected. Get one that can recharge phones. What you’ll save in batteries is good for the planet and your money. Perfect for hunting, camping, skiing, or any outdoor activity.
Night time reading WIN
Love these lanterns! My main purpose for buying them was for my children to use them when reading in bed at night. No more lost flashlights, endless changing of batteries or complaints of someone shining the light in their eyes! The battery holds a charge for many nights of reading & the option to dim the light or use red light reading(great for early risers who share a room).
They most certainly do Sarah! Thanks for sharing!
Love Luminaid Product
Easy to charge, easy to use - and GREAT lumins!!
Bought the Luminaids as gifts
We have used the lanterns for camping, boondocking and emergency lights. We bought Luminaids for our family members for Christmas gifts.
Have purchased several charging lanterns through the years and given a number of them as gifts—they were greatly appreciated and all have worked tremendously well for all of us. Thank you so much for all you offer on your website and the work you do to help others.
Hi Craig, That's awesome! Thanks for sharing the gift of light with others!
