All three models are the same size and weight. The main difference is that each model has different colored light output:

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.

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.

Love these lanterns

I’ve had a Firefly 2 in 1 for a few months. I just bought two solar lanterns for myself, and two for a wedding gift.

Multiple uses for Spectra!

I originally bought these last Fall when sold as Jack o lanterns. My two young grandkids took them trick or treating. My daughter loved them because she could spot her kids even when they ran ahead. Recently we were looking for lights to float in our small pool for an evening party. We ordered and returned solar “balls”. We tried these and they were great so I ordered a couple more. They’ll be nice for extra light anywhere in our yard. Love that they are solar! Great as back up lighting for emergencies. So many uses!! It’s nice to be able to donate light, also :)

A light in dark places

Staying in remote, funky places when traveling is our game...sure came in handy to be able to cook and read when off the grid. Relied on it for our only light on several occasions and it didn't disappoint!

Bright enough to read by

We bought this lantern on a whim and were delighted by it. If you hang it from a tree or the top of your tent, it is bright enough to cook, clean or read by. Perfect for those stormy nights when you are forced to huddle inside a tent with a book or deck of cards. We have purchased one for each one of our family members for camping (or emergency kits.) They are lightweight and easy to store inside a backpack. We prefer the plain white, as it is slightly brighter and the kiddos are not constantly trying to change the colours.
