"An outstanding gift because it supports a good cause, is useful in emergency and wilderness situations, and is a fun, functional piece of kit."
- Backpacker Magazine
We were inspired to invent the LuminAID light after the 2010 Haiti Earthquake. We wanted to create something that could pack flat for easy transport, 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.
