Remarkably lightweight, waterproof and supremely portable; the Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern is a task light, flash light and diffused lantern all rolled into one inflatable package.
Utilising the rechargeable lithium-ion battery and super-efficient solar panels, all you need to do is leave it in the sun (or under any incandescent light) to charge, then open it up and shed some serious light on the situation.
Perfect for clever campers and hard-core hikers, the Luci Lantern is an ingenious addition to any kit. It also represents an eco-friendly, real-world solution to the lack of electrical lighting in developing countries - providing educational, medical and environmental benefits to those in need.
Through their ‘Buy One, Give One’ program, every time a Luci Lantern is purchased, the fine folks at MPowerd have pledged to send one to someone in a developing country.

Ah the Luci solar lantern!!
Its charming, its cute, its effective, it does exactly what it says on the tin............. .
The pictures are very misleading! The children holding the lantern in the pictures must be midgets! I take it the lantern is produced in two sizes and you can only get the small one??
It will literally sit in the palm of your hand!!
Anyway, great product, just be aware the one sold here is the size of a small saucer not a dinner plate! Adam, Berkhamsted - 31st March 2013
I was looking for a solar lantern for camping abroad for a while, then I came across this one. I ordered it because of its simplicity and that one goes to a needy cause. The light is amazing and the fact it can be flat and so light to carry and pack is a bonus. To date I've got too and about to order one more. I would strongly recomend to any camper. We actually used them in the house and was amazed at the amount of light from them. Glenn, Uk. North West - 28th March 2013
