When it comes to camping lighting you typically get to choose between one that requires buying batteries or the slightly more old fashioned versions that require you to light them. Well this camping light features a vintage look, so you can feel like you’re using an old lamp. However, it uses solar power to keep the LEDs burning brightly, instead of running on the same thing a vintage lamp would run on. It’s definitely the best of both worlds, old look and new technology. It might not be as bright as a modern flashlight, which can produce up to 1000 lumens, but it’s enough to light up your tent.
Although the lamp is shown in the bright red shown here, once you get to reading through the product page you’ll discover a brief mention that the lamp is actually jet black instead of red. The lamps use 2 AA batteries. If for some reason the solar panel does not receive 4-6 hours of the sunlight it needs to charge, you can pop in a couple of regular batteries to run the 7 LED lights. It doesn’t say quite how long the lamp will run on a full charge though. You can purchase the lantern for $21.99 from Sourcing Map.
