Luci Core Light

MSRP: $19.95

Weight: 5.3 ounces

The MPowerd Luci Core Light is a utility solar light that can be used in a variety of different settings. Take it camping, and you can use it to light your tent late at night. It makes a good overhead light. It also helps you to accomplish tasks in low-light. And, since it’s solar powered, it’s a sustainable and eco-friendly lighting system.

MPowerd Luci Core Light Features

The Mpowerd Luci Core Light comes with four different modes. You can easily shift between the low, medium, high, and flashing modes, which makes it really easy to customize your lighting experience. This light also comes with overcurrent protection in order to keep you and your belongings safe from potential supercharges. 

Battery Life

Users can expect 12 hours out of the Luci Core Light when the setting is on low. The medium setting provides about 7 hours of lighting. The high setting offers 3 hours of light. And the flashing setting will work for up to 6 hours. 

Solar & USB Charging

Once the battery has entirely died, direct sunlight will fully recharge this device in 13 hours. Or you can choose to use the built-in usb port to recharge it in a single hour. 

Waterproof Rating

The Luci Core Light has a waterproof rating of IPX4. This means that the light should handle light rain without issue, but it shouldn’t be submerged into liquid. For best results, keeping your Luci Core Light away from saturation is a good plan. But it’s comforting to know that it’ll handle some moisture with no issue. 

Light Testing

I was lucky enough to test the Luci Core Light in a variety of settings on the East Coast. After using it for climbing trips, backpacking trips, and simple day-to-day operations, I found myself impressed with this light. While it isn’t a device that’ll help you read in the dark, it does emit a surprising amount of light. Even the lowest setting offers a great window of light. I imagine it’ll also be a terrific addition to your home when you experience power outages. 

But what I loved those most about this light was that it was so versatile. Using the adjustable arm that comes with this device, you can easily mount it on trees, your tent, or just about anywhere else you can imagine. This means that it’s really easy to optimize this light’s capabilities. 


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.
