Camping requires light, as the moon and stars certainly won't provide enough during evenings in the wilderness, and the BioLite SunLight is a solid option that solves two problems at once. The compact, solar-powered camping lantern is effectively self-charging, and it has a lightweight profile that makes it a low-pressure addition to one's gear pile.
Weight is essential in camping. Without the benefit of motors, campers propel everything that they bring along with their own muscle, so reducing the load is essential — especially on long trips. Coming in at just 3.4 ounces, and with a slight frame of 3.5 inches, the BioLite SunLight is an easy choice as one's camping lantern.
The BioLite SunLight has a solar panel that can charge the 750 mAh battery in seven hours when exposed to direct sunlight. Once charged, the light can last for 50 hours on its lowest setting or 3 hours on its brightest setting.
