Hey guys. While on vacation in NY recently, my cousin said "hey... got a lantern for you to take along on your canoe trip." I'm thinking 3lb Coleman or something. No. He hands me a piece of round plastic with a button and solar panels on one side and says "buddy of mine is working for this company... they're trying to provide cheap light for the developing world, and he gave me a couple for free. So take it, try it out, and let me know what you think." I don't have any in-use pics, but my wife and I did set it up inside my Whelen lean-to and it worked great... plenty of light to play cards by, cook, eat, or just see what you're doing, without throwing "too much" like a headlamp or gas lantern sometimes can. There is a 3-way switch on top (red button in the pics). Push once, low power. Twice, high power. Thrice, strobe. Fourth time, off. There are two plastic straps that go across the diameter of both ends (you can see them in the pics). They're cheap, tacked on like any vinyl would be, but adequate. I ran a bungi cord through the one on top, to hang from the Whelen, and it was fine. The thing sell for about $15 online and I saw them for the same price later on at an Eastern Mountain Sports retail shop. Here's the website for those interested. The "charity" and "technical" side both have their own tabs. https://www.mpowerd.com/ Finally, here are some pics of a second one my cousin gave me, still in the box and just opened (I left the original one in NY w/my second set of gear). Top of box. It's 5" wide. Speaking of measurements, it weighs 4oz. Inside the box, there's a blurb on what the charity does. Bottom view of light, showing 10 LEDs and the blow-up valve (12 o'clock position). Side view. It kinda sits at 3/4" to 1" by itself, but you can squeeze it down to 1/2". Top view, showing solar panels and red on/off button. Laying on its side. It is 4.25" tall/thick when inflated, and the light is on in this picture. There is a nice diffusion of the light. You can also see the thin handle coming off the bottom. The one on top is the same. Overall, I liked it, will use it again for canoe trips, and would recommend it to others. On my own light backpacking trips, I might not take it just because I have a headlamp, but this would sure be nice to read or write by, and I would definitely use it in place of a candle lantern, were I tempted to take one.
