Solar Powered Lighting:
By Amy Alton, ARNP
Who doesn’t worry about being in the dark without any lighting options? As a Mom and a prepper, this has been something that is not only on my mind for the future, but a need everyone should solve asap. Just yesterday our lights went out for a couple of hours because a tropical storm came through South Florida. It had gone out the day before several times also. Instead of having to look for our batteries and flashlights, we had a quick action LED solar light, called Luci Original. Thankfully, we also have the sister light, the Luci Emrg.
These inflatable, lightweight solar lanterns are small enough to store in many locations around your home and in cars. I actually left mine outside in the hot South Florida sun for 6 months to see how the plastic tolerated the rain and searing heat. Wow! After I cleaned them up, they look like new and the lights were as bright and long lasting as the day we got them. They really are 100% water-proof.
I have to say I was totally blown away. The Luci Original and Luci Emrg both turned on quickly and lasted hours, and all three settings worked. They both have bright, super bright and 1 second flashing for emergencies (the Luci Emerg also flashes red). The Luci Original lasts 12 hours, and the Luci Emrg up to 7 hours. To charge, just place the built in solar panel in the sun for a few hours. The Luci Original is clear and larger, and the Luci Emrg is frosted and slightly smaller, but both provide strong lighting.
I will be getting more of these Luci solar lights for emergency use and also for our outdoor adventures. It always pays to be prepared and having quality products is the best plan.
