Speaking of Solar Lamps...

Another great solar-charge lamp caught our eye and I was pretty keen to get a chance to try this one out.   What I notice about this lamp:

1. It folds down nicely and is easily packed.

2. It seems to charge quickly and being LED, it doesn't take much charge at all to light the lamp for hours.

3. It gives plenty of light:

It comes with a hanging hook that folds neatly into the top compartment of the lamp and has far more solar charge surface area than some other lamps in its class.

As for weight, it's difficult to be bothered by 20grams.  The light has 3 settings, well, 4 if you include turning it off :) and you can charge it via USB if you want to ensure it comes pre-loaded with enough power from the get-go.  This is a well designed little lamp.

 It's been useful and dependable both out in the backcountry as well as here at home and a great addition to our personal gear shelf :)

Happy Trails!
