I bought my PackLite Max 2-in-1 online from luminAid as a backup power supply for charging up some of my electronic gear as I hiked. It served as a great source of lighting while in my tent after dark on the Appalachian Trail.

Pros

  • Love the light weight and bright light.
  • I loved hiking with the luminAid strapped to the top of my pack with the solar panel soaking up the sun for solar power to charge my gear when needed.

Cons

  • My only real problem is having to inflate the PackLite by mouth, which can lead to condensation on the inside you can't get to.

I carry a couple of different solar panels while hiking and or canoeing and when I saw the luminAid online I liked what I saw. I thought it would make a good camp light and I don't have to worry about batteries going dead. 

Experience

I first tested /used my PackLite Max at home while working on my truck. After that first usage I carried it with me on a hike of the Appalachian Trail. I carried it strapped to the top of my pack and when I stopped for the evening and set up camp I used it to charge up my electronic gear and then it lit up my tent as I was getting my bedding set up.

Source: bought it new
Price Paid: I paid $75
