MPOWERD, the makers of the original Luci inflatable solar-powered rechargeable lantern, have tweaked its design. The result is the new Luci EMRG that provides a more intense focused beam of light. It can be used as an emergency flashlight, lantern, or emergency flasher. The Luci EMRG is a good alternative to other emergency light sources, such as candles or kerosene lanterns.
Earlier versions of the Luci inflatable lantern provided a soft diffuse glow. The light came from a set of multi-colored LEDs in the base of the lantern. The team redesigned the inflatable lantern to create a more intense beam of light. The Luci EMRG uses four new LEDs that shine brighter to create a beam similar to a flashlight. The LEDs can also glow softer like the original Luci to maximize battery life.
The LED bulbs are powered by a lithium polymer battery that is charged with a small (75mA) built-in solar panel. The Luci EMRG’s batteries are concealed in the waterproof inflatable lantern. They can be powered using a solar cell built into the bottom of the lantern. Eight hours of sunlight are needed to completely charge the battery.
The batteries can run for about seven hours on a full charge. The battery can retain 95 percent charge per month while in storage. It can be charged up to 3,000 times, which means it can provide about 10 years of daily use. The LED bulbs can deliver up to 25 lumens, which is enough to light a 10’ x 10’ room.
The Luci EMRG is ultra-compact. The inflatable lantern is 4” x 4” and weighs 2.5 ounces. It collapses down to 1” tall for storage or transport and is compact enough to fit in a glove box, bag, or emergency kit. The phthalate-free PVC housing is shatterproof and waterproof up to one meter.
