Luci Original is a bright, lightweight inflatable solar lantern that collapses flat to 1 inch so you can take a little light wherever you go. Just place it in direct sunlight for 7 hours and Luci Original will last up to 12 hours on a single charge. Luci Original shines powerfully in three settings: bright, super bright, and 1 second flashing. A convenient battery level indicator located near the light’s highly efficient solar panel lets you know just how much power is left so you know when it’s time to charge it in the sun again.
Luci Original is a no frills, gets-the-job-done kind of light that’s perfect for the patio, garden, backyard barbecues, camping, emergency preparedness and as a unique gift. It’s a clean, reliable source of light that’s completely waterproof and extremely durable, so you can use Luci Original anywhere you need light. About MPOWERD:

Luci vs. D.light.

Great product in it’s own right, but I still prefer the D-Light solar light for general usage.
A revolutionary product

In the hands of people that do not have and have never had electricity this is a life changing product. But, lets rein in the claims a bit. It takes direct sun to get a full charge and from my tests on the 6 lanterns that I bought it is about an hour per hour trade off, hour of sun, hour of good light. On a day of fairly bright overcast my lantern just charged enough to give a little more than an hour of bright light and I am at 9 degrees north latitude in Panama. On the sunny days I get 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 hours of light that everyone sitting around my four foot round table can easily read by, even my 71 year old eyes have no problem. I would like to get more of these lights into the hands of the Indian people here, many of these villages have never had light after the sun went down. This is not darkest Africa, this is Panama, you know the canal, the huge new Trump Hotel, beyond Panama city are many that still commute by paddling dugout canoes. Anyway I will be ordering more Luci Lights.
Great for Halloween Trick or Treating and Awesome to Have On-Hand for Emergencies!
Little lantern puts out a lot of light! This was really handy for our Halloween trick-or-treating. It rained this year, adding slick roads to the danger of nighttime traffic. We took the children around as a group and this light lit the way for all the adults (no one had brought a flashlight) and made it easy for our son to spot his parents in the crowd, ensuring he didn’t get to far ahead of the group.
It’s small when deflated but easy to inflate – though you can see the residue …
We took this camping for it’s first use. It was just an overnight trip. We didn’t charge it before going but it had enough battery in it to last us the entire night. It’s small when deflated but easy to inflate – though you can see the residue on the inside from your breath if you are looking at it. I liked the settings – on, brighter, and flashing. We left it on brighter the whole night. Our flashlight was brighter than this lantern but I was expecting this. It’s easy to use – one button for turning on and switching settings and one button to check the power level. The power levels are hard to see in direct sunlight – I had to shade the area and really search the indicator light area. It has a handle that we used to hang it by. It is also easy to charge – just stick it in the sun for a few hours. I think the best part was it is child friendly – didn’t have to worry about propane, fire, heaviness, breaking, etc.
Buy it for the weight, not for its incredible light output
I have lots of solar lights. For whatever reason they are my thing. I have gotten two of these Luci units over the years. They are unique in their size and their compactness. If you are backpacking and are concerned about the weight you are carrying, this is your product. However, if you’re more concerned with the amount of light output and the money you’re spending, there are better choices. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind having this little unit. But if I were to just be buying for it’s use in a power outage, this wouldn’t be my Top Choice.
We like these because we never have to worry about batteries …
This is my second inflatable solar light by Luci. We like these because we never have to worry about batteries when we go camping. How long does it last? I can’t tell you exactly because we turn it on to get to our tent and then we have it on while we snuggle in for bed. When we wake up in the AM it is full dead. I like that you can just recharge it again the next day. It packs very small for backpacking too. It gives off a nice bright glow while we need it for tasks after dark and doesn’t attract bugs like some lanterns do. The only issue I have with this light is that I’m sometimes not sure whether to hold it up or down. With the lights facing up, they blind you and you can’t see your path, and with the lights facing down, you need to hold it up high to see whats near your face (if brush and sticks are a concern). It would be nice if it gave off light from both top and bottom like a traditional lantern.
Bright, durable, and easy to use!
I ordered the MPowered Luci Inflatable Solar Light to use. I wanted something that did use up batteries or that needed to be plugged in. I decided on this one because it had very good reviews. I now know I made the right choice! The light came with some power in it and is perfect for my needs. It is easy to inflate, easy to turn on/off, and all around easy to use. It has an indicator that shows the battery level and holds a charge really well. Since I only use it at night when I need to navigate through the house in the dark, I haven’t needed to charge it yet. I really like that it can be deflated to take up less space, that it is durable and that it has different brightness settings. I do wish had a dimmer light setting, but I’m still completely satisfied and hope to buy more soon.
nice portable light

I have had my light only a week, so I can not speak about longevity. But the light provides sufficient light for my bedroom at night, and also when I am moving around the house in the morning while everyone is sleeping. Why not just turn on a light you say? I like the soft light, as well as not hooking up to the power grid each time I need a little light in a spot. Looking forward to taking this backpacking as well. They are in high demand, amazon does not even have any for less than $40 presently. Come back when the price is back at $15 with free shipping.
