Finding Luci on My Morning Walk

There are not that many people left around here so the road out front of camp is pretty quiet and makes for a good route to take my morning walks.  I don’t have to contend with annoying ATVs stirring up a bunch of dust all the time.

On one such morning walk I found a Luci Light.  It was dirty and flat  I figured it had been run over.  Back at camp I cleaned it up, pushed a button and it lit up!  I got on the site to learn more about it.  I was already aware of Luci Lights for they are very popular with car and tent campers and nomads traveling in vans.

It is made of a soft vinyl plastic and collapses down and that is how I found it.  You blow it up as you see here.  The light has a low, bright and flashing mode, the latter I don’t know why you would want unless you plan to have a dance party at camp.  Set it in the sun to charge up and it will stay lit for twenty-four hours.  A charge will last for three years when stored away if you can believe that.

That evening I set it up inside and was very impressed with the light it gave off.  I can see why people really like Luci Lights.  You can get them from Amazon for $20.  I think they would be nice for the home owner to have in case of power outages.

I have 3 of them which I keep in a south facing window so they are always ready for action!

I gave these as Christmas presents one year to my three sons, one of whom does a lot of outdoor stuff...and to a good friend who also is a hiker. They are fun and useful...two qualities I admire in things.

Great tip. Thanks. Looks much brighter than my Coleman lantern, which I've never been happy with despite it's being powered by four D-cells.

I have never heard of these but they look marvellous, I may do some more investigation and perhaps make a purchase!

We have one and used it during a 3 day outage we had last month.
