"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.
I love my PackLite Nova!
I have a couple PackLite Nova lamps because we have occasional power outages. They're so easy and safe to use and the light is so pleasant. They keep me functional during power outages. And I really love them when I travel for night light in unfamiliar hotel rooms and a pleasant reading light that doesn't disturb others in the room, much better than bedside table lamps. I ordered these to keep in the car emergency pack but will give one to each of my sisters instead so they can "discover" them too. I think these lights make the world a better place! Thanks LuminAid!
That's great Merrick, thanks for spreading the gift of light!
color changing lantern
This worked out well when I was camping at a dark sky park. You can only use a red light and this was perfect.
Camping light and more
Got this light for camping and it works fantastic. Plenty of light for all night. Used for several hours when power went out at home and it lit up the whole room.
Perfect for tent lighting
Highly satisfied! Bright enough, lightweight enough, compact enough, and the burn time is excellent. We cut the clear plastic "bubble" off because it is extraneous to our needs. The lamp works perfectly. Best part is the more natural colour - significantly closer to full spectrum or natural sunlight or firelight that our human brains have evolved to appreciate!
Solar multicolor = Fun
Got this lantern in time for Halloween. What a beautiful little lantern. Choose any single color or set it to have the colors cycle. Added the Halloween stickers to it and we had a blast using it for our pre-Dawn morning run. Just plain fun as well as functional. Colors like red and dark blue are less bright, while brighter colors are of course much brighter. Perfect for every setting.
That's awesome Jeanette! Happy you had a blast!
