The glow you see in the pic is not quite an entrancing as the light is in person but it's still nice.

You had it first!

Did you call it right by offering these solar lights! We always take them with us when we sail, when we camp, and when we hike. We keep them charged to use in case of power failures. They are now available in various types from REI, but Grommet got them started. Good for you!
Prepared for outages

I'm in the process of preparing my house for any further outages, last one was 6 hours, light is main concern after it gets dark and I bought these so I would have light! I've seen these lights several times on TV and they are a great idea, I can just store them until I need them, in the event of a storm or something else to threaten an outage, I will take them out and place them in the sun to charge them and then be prepared.

Original Inflatable Solar Lantern

Our classic Luci light. Luci Original is a no frills, gets-the-job-done kind of light. Bright, compact, and portable for any situation—from camping to travel to working around the house. Completely solar, Luci Original is a clean, reliable source of light just about anywhere you need it.


Luci is an inflatable, affordable, solar lantern that generates continuous light with zero emissions anywhere on earth, independent of the grid. It can be charged under direct sunlight or cloudy skies (as well as incandescent light).

As easy to use as it is to deflate and stow, Luci’s durable, waterproof design makes it ideal for everything from boating and camping to outdoor entertaining, and power outages. In fact, lack of electricity was the inspiration for the idea. MPOWERD was co-founded by Jacques-Philippe Piverger, John Salzinger, and Jason Alan Snyder. Principal inventor Jason Alan Snyder worked hand in hand with John Salzinger to develop the Luci lantern after an earthquake in 2010 left thousands without power in Haiti. Now, MPOWERD is on a mission to illuminate the lives of people who live in energy poverty all over the world.

Unlike other solar light products, Luci incorporates the functions of a task light, flashlight, and diffused lantern. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery weighs only 4.5 ounces. In your car, at home, or for those in need, Luci has the power to shed light on all types of tasks and all kinds of situations. more Their Story
