LuminAID PackLite Spectra says, “Let there be light!”

luminaid-spectraMany of us happen to live in a society where we take all of our basic necessities for granted. Take for instance, water and electricity – is there ever a doubt that our taps will run dry when we turn them on, or that there is no electricity to power the router to keep us connected to the Internet at home? Rarely, especially in developed countries, but this does not mean that we should take things for granted. The $29.99 LuminAID PackLite Spectra ensures that even in the event of an emergency, you will still be able to have a source of light – coming in handy whenever there is a power outage.

The LuminAID PackLite Spectra will come with the ability to spice up a poolside party, too, thanks to the inclusion of 7 distinct color modes and multi-color fade, in addition to the mainstay LED light, of course. The LuminAID PackLite Spectra can inflates into a lightweight, waterproof, portable lantern if the situation and need arises, where a solitary full charge is able to deliver up to 12 hours of LED light on low setting. Sporting a 35 Lumen output, it comes with a high efficiency (19% efficiency) monocrystalline solar panel to ensure that you will have a source of light charged up whenever the sun comes out to play. It will take anywhere from 7 to 10 hours of direct sunlight to charge up fully though, so do take note of that, and with a 2 year storage life before needing to recharge, it is perfect for those emergency situations.
