Bought one just to see what they were about. They're great! They fold flat for easy storage in a drawer or backpack. Not sure how long they last as I haven't had one on for more than a few hours at a time. Used it on our dive flag for a night dive, and even the dive master was impressed. It has 3 settings, one that flashes, so perfect for alerting boats. has handles on each end, so you can use a D ring to clip it to anything. Bought more during hurricane season. They charge while still in the packaging, so you can have them around for any occasion. They make some with color changing LEDs that make great birthday gifts for 10 yr old boys! My nephew loved his! Great emergency lights!

      Comments about MPOWERD Luci Inflatable Solar Lantern:

      I have found this to be far more useful than I expected. I purchased one to test and found it to be useful in so many ways, and have since bought several more. I primarily use it on sailboats but it has proven very helpful in many situations.

      On the boat, I use it to light areas that the installed lights don't properly illuminate. Additionally, I use it so I don't drain the house batteries. I have also used it to illuminate the cockpit, camp grounds, as an emergency light, etc. It has almost no weight and is easy to attach to anything with Velcro, string, a carabineer, etc. It has a built in strap that makes affixing it easy.

      The one set of packaging says it lasts up to twelve hours however I have not received anything near that. Part of the reason is that it seems to need several days of charging in order to get the twelve hours. I am very happy with it since I can get six or so hours after one winter day or charging. In the summer I can get a little longer use. If you are going to set it outside, be sure to secure it if there is anything more than a few miles an hour of wind. It will blow around due to a lack of weight.

      It has four settings; off, low, high, and flashing (emergency). I rarely need the high power as the low setting is quite sufficient for most applications. My boats are all 27 feet long and two light up the galley or eating area quite nicely. In fact, one on low is often enough. In the V berth, one is enough for me to read with, even on low. I have turned them on in temperatures as low as 12 degrees (F) and they have worked perfectly. The plastic never seems to get stiff even at low temperatures. They also work well enough as short range flashlights in a pinch.

      There is one with colours that I will try soon.

          This is a very handy light to keep on hand at our cabin, in boats, and relational vehicles. It is perfect for those evening excursions when a reliable light becomes handy. It is also invaluable for those unexpected power outages. We plan to buy several more.

                This light is so versatile, uses are only limited to your imagination. I recently purchased these to give as gifts to family this year who all live up north and have frequent issues with power outages during the winter months. I Have had mine now for 3 years and they are still burning strong. Use it daily.

                  Fast, charming and simple solution to having light in evening and at night in the cockpit under the bimini. Attaches with simple strip of velcro to the bimini steelwork overhead. One more than enough at max light strength. Put 2, one each side of cockpit to have less nuisance from shadows cast by the people in the cockpit. Very happy with this cute and efficient product. Had people on the boat who saw the product and decided immediately to get some for their own.
