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

MPowerd Luci Explore

Fun, colorful all-in-one. We love our other Luci light (the Solar String Lights) for camping and the backyard, so we were excited to try out the Luci Explore. Something that drives me crazy about camping lights is when they put off a blue or bright white light instead of a warm glow. A nice thing about this light/speaker is that you can pick precisely the color and brightness you want. And honestly, the option to have the bright white light on the Luci Explore is also pretty handy for unpacking… Full review

MPowerd Luci Explore

A lightweight, fun, solar rechargeable light with the perks of being a Bluetooth speaker and backup phone battery! Great for use as a lantern at dinner or adjust brightness and color to add ambiance to your campsite.   Color Changing LEDs This new light from MPOWERD is plenty bright enough to replace a camp lantern or brighten up even some of the biggest tents. The color changing aspect is also very cool. The color along with the brightness controls and the "timer" function on the app could certainly… Full review

MPowerd Luci Explore

We tried the Luci Connect but THEN found the LUCI Explore. It's made by the same company, BUT has a few more useful features. I love the creativity of the team at Mpowerd. The Explore is a solar powered, light/speaker that can charge your electronic devices. It is perfect for people who love the outdoors but have kids who love their technology! The Explore option is a much more practical/versatile item than the Connect. We love it! The kids can listen to music and charge their electronics while… Full review

Black Diamond Moji

A small lamp with big ideas. It throws out a decent amount of light and it can be made bright or dim with anything in between. It is not the warmest light I've experienced. This was gifted to me by Trailspace for being a Reviewer of the Month last year. I have used it on a camping holiday and overnight in a Celtic Round house. It puts out a generous 100 Lumens, but can be adjusted to just a few Lumens to act as a "nightlight." This lamp is ideal for camping trips. It runs on three AAA batteries… Full review

MPowerd Luci Original

Lightweight inflatable solar lantern. We have four of these solar lanterns. I purchased them a couple of years ago at a Bob’s Store for $14.95 each to use as nighttime lighting in our Oru kayaks. The Oru folding kayaks are made of a double-thick, polyethylene sheet that is folded into a 12-foot kayak (Beach LT and Bay LT) and a 16-foot Coast model. The white hull is translucent, so we activate two lanterns for each hull and put one each in the bow and stern as we are assembling the kayak for safe… Full review

MPowerd Luci Outdoor 2.0

To sum up this light in one word...fantastic! I have owned two of these lights for several years, and they are FANTASTIC. They weigh next to nothing. I clip one to the top of my pack lid and it recharges while I'm hiking. They have a charge level indicator (which my first solar light did not have), and a loop on top to hang it in my tent using the mini-biners that clip it to my pack. On low power it puts out enough light to see to set up my tent, read a book, or any other task that you would perform… Full review
