Light Storage

When we first heard about FireWater, we weren’t sure why one would need a combined waterproof container, solar powered light, and water bottle. But, it turns out, it’s an ingenious idea for anyone who’s outdoorsy. Charge up the solar lantern during the day or, if the sun isn’t cooperating, use the USB port. When evening hits, you’ll have 50-100 lumens to light up your tent or trek. Meanwhile, use it as a leak-proof water bottle. The LED light won’t warm up your water, but your water will have a nice colored glow. And as well as FireWater can keep your water in, it can also keep water out. This multipurpose lantern is a waterproof storage container, too. Put your valuables inside when you kayak or if it rains. As long as you keep the included elastic over the USB port, the inside will stay dry. When FireWater isn’t performing one of its many functions, it collapses down to pack. Store it in your backpack on a hike, boat trip, or camping trip, and you’ll almost be over-prepared.

    @mary Thanks for the question, Mary. Yes - It is absolutely safe to hang on your backpack while hiking. Simply un-clip the silicone strap from one end to loop through an attachment point on your pack, and reconnect the strap to allow it to dangle from your pack.

    @Sharon With a full charge, the light lasts for ~5 hours on the high setting, ~12 hours on the low setting, & up to 15 hours on the emergency/strobe setting.

    How long does a charge last and where is the product made?

  • Brendan
    Brendan – Special Guest
    7/19/2016 10:39 AM

    @Melody It takes ~5 hours to charge the battery completely via USB, and ~8 hours to charge completely via solar (highly dependent on light intensity). With a full charge, the light lasts for ~5 hours on the high setting, ~12 hours on the low setting, & up to 15 hours on the emergency/strobe setting. It is manufactured in China.

    Will this product be ok if left exposed to the elements should you be caught out in a rain storm while it is out side your pack?

  • Brendan
    Brendan – Special Guest
    7/19/2016 11:13 AM

    @D Yes - The solar panel & USB port on the lid is highly water resistant (just not long-term submersion waterproof), and given that the lid is sealed properly, the contents of the bottle will remain dry when it's being used as a waterproof case.

    @Dave Correct - It is made with food-grade silicone that is BPA-free, PVC-free, & dishwasher safe (except for the lid, which should be cleaned by hand).

    @Guest While I don't know the exact difference in lumen output between the colored & white bottles (sorry!), I agree that there is a VERY slight difference, though negligible even when side-by-side. They are remarkably similar and all emit enough light to read by, play cards around, be seen from a significant distance (i.e. in emergency settings), etc, and I would urge you to go with the color that is most appealing!

    The description says that it is only waterproof with the band properly placed over the USB port. Are they available solar only so that we don't need to worry about the water proofing? (Not looking for submersible just heavy rains etc.)

  • Brendan
    Brendan – Special Guest
    7/19/2016 12:38 PM

    @Michael They are not available as solar only, but rest assured that the band is very easy to put in place, which will waterproof the USB port even in heavy rains (there is also a secondary USB port plug underneath the band). The band is also glow-in-the-dark, so it is easy to find in your tent or on your nightstand at night. Additionally, it is textured and provides additional grip when tightening/loosening the lid with wet hands.
