    If you are interested in learning more about our company background and story, please read our About page or check out our crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in 2011 for the background information on how we started LuminAID.

    We acknowledge that there are other companies selling inflatable solar lanterns. Whenever there is a unique idea, there are bound to be copies and counterfeits. We invest a great deal of energy in making the best products and integrating new technologies, and our technology is designed to be high quality and high performing. Copycat products are made out of PVC (a material that is harmful to your health and the environment), cheaply made, and prone to breaking, so we use the highest quality components and pay close attention to design details to make sure our products last. We believe that if we are putting our products in large volume into the world, they should be of the highest quality and environmentally friendly. We have a 1-Year, No-Questions-Asked Full Warranty.

    If you purchased a counterfeit or copy, please email info@luminaid.com.

    We believe that invention, entrepreneurship, and innovation are intimately linked to the protection of intellectual property and the legal enforcement of patent protection. At LuminAID, we stand behind the originality, authenticity, integrity, and uniqueness of our products and hope our customers will join us in supporting the power of innovation through patent protection of new technologies and ideas. 

    Thank you,
    Anna, Andrea, and the LuminAID team
