Luci Inflatable Light + Power Bank

Inflatable Light + Power Bank Features

The Mpowerd Luci Inflatable Light + Power Bank is a fun and easy-to-use device. It comes with 360 powerful lumens, and 31 individual white lights in order to give users the best possible lighting experience. The adjustable strap makes it possible to hang this light in your tent, or to easily carry it by your hand. And it can even be used to charge small devices if you’d prefer to use it as a backup battery. 

Water Resistance

With an IP67 water resistance rating, you can expect this light to be nearly invincible. In fact, products with an IP67 water resistance rating can be entirely submerged for up to 30 minutes. This means that outdoorsy folks who like to bring solar lights on backpacking trips won’t have to worry about the Mpowerd Luci Inflatable Light becoming useless after a small rain storm. Instead, it’ll continue to operate and support your activities even after being exposed to water. 

Battery Life

Solar Panel

The Mpowerd Luci Inflatable Light + Power Bank comes with a solar panel and a built-in two way USB port. This means that it’s possible to recharge it via two different methods. It takes about 28 hours for the sun to recharge this device, while it takes 5-6 hours to charge it via electricity. 

When operated on its low setting, this light is capable of shining for 13 hours. The medium setting supports 24 hours. The high setting supports up to 5 hours. And the flashing settings will last as many as 9 hours. For a compact solar chargeable light, the light time is nothing to scoff at!

Bright Lighting

Some people make the mistake of charging this light on the dashboard of their car. But it’s important to remember that it can only safely exist in temperatures of to 113 degrees fahrenheit. So, don’t place it on your dashboard if you expect it to get hot. 

Light Testing Conditions

I was lucky enough to camp with this light in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Over the course of 6 months, I used it in moderate to extreme conditions. Overall, it was consistent, fun to use, and easy to operate. I’m always a fan of Luci lights because they’re innovative, sustainable, and creative. And this particular option is no different. Additionally, if you’re like me and you tend to carry a lot of electronics on your backpacking trips, it never hurts to have a backup battery like this one. 

Experience

I've worked with about a dozen different solar-powered lights, and plenty of standard lighting systems. I've owned this particular light for about 6 months, and carried it for a variety of backpacking and climbing trips.

Thanks for sharing this review, Mary Beth. I think you miswrote the battery life for the low setting though, and it should be more like 50.
