This beautiful solar lantern by TerraFriendly has quickly become one of my favorite solar items! I can't seem to get enough solar products in my life....truly, and when this one came along, it is so unique I just had to try it out.
I LOVE fall, pumpkins, and leaves, so when I saw the pumpkin design, I didn't even have to look at what other designs they had available. This one was for me!
When I ordered it, I didn't realize the design is a removable sleeve. That's awesome, because you aren't stuck with a design you may not like, and you can also use it as a bright light without the sleeve on it. See image below.
It comes in a box about 6" x 6" x 2". Very small and thin. I was so surprised at how compact it is when deflated. It even works that way too if you wish to not blow it up.
The top of it has a battery life level on it to show you how much charge it has.
Just leave it in the sun for 6 hours or so, and you'll get a charge for 8 or more hours. It can be used as a nightlight, or a light to brighten up the area you are in, or as a flashlight even. You can use it in water, as it's completely waterproof. Toss it in the air, and play ball with it in the dark. Use it on a boat, kayak, or canoe for an evening ride on the lake. Picnic on the beach at night, or as a nightlight in your room.
So many uses for this item, and I'd love to get one to keep in the car for emergencies too.
Each end has a plastic handle that you can use to hang it up with, or to make it easy to carry. This has 10 led lights in it, and as you can see, it's pretty bright! Much brighter than I thought. When you put the sleeve on it, it is so pretty with a glow about it. Still bright enough to see whatever you need to see.
This also comes in other designs, but so far, most of them are for kids This is really the only adult design I saw when I ordered it, but it would be easy enough to make one of your own to slide on it, or wrap around it closing it with velcro. The sleeve provided is very easy to slide on and off with no problem at all. I did just look, and they do have a few other patterns available now that I didn't see before, and one of them is a constellation pattern. That would be neat!
It's a very cool item, and would love a dozen more of these to have around, and to give as gifts. If you are looking for a unique gift for someone that has everything, this is it! I can't think of anyone who wouldn't like to have this solar light.
If you'd like to see other reviews on it, or see the other patterns, they do have more styles available now. Please click the image at the top or bottom of this post to take you to the Amazon product listing. Thank you for stopping by!
