Big Light in a Small Space

  1. Edge-Lighting: A unique textured pattern on the lens reflects the LEDs on a steep angle creating soft, even light along the entire panel without requiring a cavernous space typical of most lanterns.

  2. High-Efficiency LEDs: White and RGB LEDs located at base of the lens provide warmth control and thousands of color options.

  3. Rechargeable Battery: A 12000 mAh battery maximizes burn time and gives the ability to share light to the daisy-chainable BioLite SiteLights. USB-charge out powers your gear.

  4. Stainless Steel Housing: Thinner and even more durable than plastic, the stainless steel housing works double time as a heat sink, helping the LEDs run more efficiently.


Bluetooth Enabled
