Replacing traditional battery-powered lights around camp with solar-powered lighting helps reduce waste and reduces carbon emissions. While I’ve been living out of my van on public lands last spring, I used the Solight QWNN self-inflating solar light and charger every night for general outdoor lighting.
Left out in the sun during the day, the Solight QWNN solar light provides up to 40 hours of beautiful lighting after an 8-10-hour solar charge. You can also charge it up with the USB port.
Made from recyclable, non-toxic materials, the QWNN lantern has five light-level settings. The QWNN is easy to unfold (no inflating required) and includes magnets to hang the light on a metal surface.
MSRP: $110. Solight-design.com
