Energizer Weatheready 360 Degree Area Light

Ok, so have you ever ran out of batteries for your flashlight or lantern? Well, I surely have and it isn't pleasant doing things in the pitch black of darkness. It usually happens to me where I am either in the middle of nowhere or when all the stores are closed that would sell batteries. Well, the people at Energizer, the same people whose batteries you probably buy, made an LED lantern with this in mind: more battery options. This lantern comes with a multi-battery option using an included adapter… Full review

Ledlenser ML6 Connect WL

I’ve been using Lupine LED light systems for night MTBiking and other activities for more than a decade. It’s hard to beat the Germans when it comes to high-end LED equipment in terms of performance, quality, versatility, and reliability. When it was time to shop for a new camping lantern, I decided to choose one from Ledlenser, another German manufacturer with similarly good reputation, but in camping/backpacking light equipment. These high-end lighting German manufacturers have great pride… Full review

MPowerd Luci Explore

Lightweight, compact, and functional! I love how lightweight and compact this is. I can just toss this into my backpack and be set in terms of lighting, music, and phone charger. The wide range of lighting options are great and the mood setting is a nice bonus. The sound is okay, so this won't replace your bluetooth speaker, but it's a nice added feature. Durable, functional, and eliminates the need to pack a bunch of extra cords, which I appreciate. Full review

MPowerd Luci Explore

If you're looking for a reasonably priced Bluetooth speaker and light that can be charged by solar power, this light is a good deal. Audiophiles might have an issue with the sound quality, but it does the job. I used this light in several situations to test it out. Since I tend to travel in the Southwestern states in a Class A RV, there’s plenty of solar power to make this light shine. On a scale of 1 to 5, I rate the Luci Explore as a 4. The app is where the Luci Explore falls short for me, and… Full review

MPowerd Luci Explore

Combo light and bluetooth speaker works well around the campsite and the house, BUT it really needs a way to hang it up! This is a bluetooth connected speaker and light that may be charged via the solar panel or an included USB A-A cord. And let's get the power issue out of the way first...who uses a cord like that? If you misplace it, as I did once, you'll be scrambling to figure out another way to charge it if it dies after dark. At least it's white so you can find it easily. Charging via the… Full review

MPowerd Luci Explore

Great for car camping, backyard hangouts, or boating. I would love it even more if it had a way to hang. I give the Luci Explore a 7/10! We were very excited to try out the Luci Explore as we already have the MPowered String lights and love them! As avid car campers we love to really deck out our campsites and lighting can make or break an evening while camping! I really enjoyed being able to change the color of the Luci and even set my own collection of colors to create a mood. We did test out… Full review
