I Like Lights!

    Got a couple of new toys, I love things that light up. Plus it actually serves as a power supply. Not really anything I would try to attach to my hat, but it doesn't weigh much. I set my glasses pouch next to it for a size comparison. No brand name anywhere. The box says work light. Oh and they are rechargeable to. 2c938d4499c6b63b666ef09f1ccfa772.jpg

    I also like lights that I don't leave my small flashlight when I go on a camping trip. But in the recent years, I also bring the compact rechargeable lamp which is better to be used especially when eating dinner. It would have been great if the solar charger works well.

    I love all the newer and modern camping gear that is less intrusive but just smart, and a lot of these lighting fixtures are just that. One of my friends has one of those fan like things that light up when you open it and it is really cool and barely uses any power at all, and it has good range.
     
  4. I was relying too much on solar rechargeable lights, which is unreliable when camping in the redwoods since we get those misty, foggy days. They help but now I'm looking for new options while getting my battery powered lights put. I really don't like it when my friends pull out their gas powered lanterns because we have enough fires around here.

    I'm with you - I don't like the noise. You may want to check out the LuminAID lanterns for auxiliary lighting. I have the two types and they are perfect for night time. For one thing, they last the entire night and are easily charged. I've tested them in summer and winter and they are excellent. [Keeping in mind that I'm expressing a personal opinion.]
    This model is about $29.00 and has four light settings you can select. I tend to use the third brightness and it lights up my campsite just fine. They fold down and can be packed easily.

    AND THIS COMPANY DOES SOMETHING DIFFERENT TOO -

    Lights sponsored for disaster relief will be sent to partner organizations and distributed to families affected by Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria, and Hurricane Harvey. Current solar lantern distribution includes: Puerto Rico, Mexico, British Virgin Island, US Virgin Island, Turks and Caicos, Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Tortola, St Kitts & Nevis, Dominica, Leeward Islands, St. Maarten, Texas, Florida, and the Dominican Republic. Following natural disasters, safe light is one of the most critical needs for families left in the dark. Help us send lights for rescue, relief, and recovery.

    I still have two of their older models that I purchased years ago and they both work fine.

    I rely heavily on my headlight that enables my hands to be free. Check out their web site@ LuminAID Solar Lantern.

    I don't like buying and replacing batteries. Most of the times when I camp, we only use our head lamps. I still pack the lights, thst I posted a picture of, but the only time I use them is to charge my phone battery.
     
  8. Yeah, i mostly need lights if I have work to do, otherwise I enjoy the night. This is especially true when we have meteor showers.

    I'm sort of progressive - from propane lanterns to kerosene/citronella, to flashlights of various kinds, and now mostly solar powered. The solar scene has improved remarkably. I use a headlight too - the one I have actually shines like a headlight and gives a broad view of what is in front of me. It can be reduced and also has the red light. I do have the Goalzero system that provides tent lighting and also a power source for small items like DVD's etc.
