Originally created by a pair of graduate students to assist earthquake relief efforts in Haiti, LuminAID inflatable solar lights are now used by emergency workers, hikers, and backpackers worldwide. The durable, water-resistant TPU construction inflates to diffuse light, and flattens into a compact package that can be clipped on your backpack or tucked in your first-aid kit. Equipped with a four-level battery indicator and an adjustable strap for hanging, the light can be charged via the built-in solar panel or the micro USB input. The lantern also has a color-changing feature with seven color modes, a white LED mode, and a multicolor fade.
Note: This drop includes two PackLite Spectra USB inflatable solar lights. This drop has limited quantities available.
Founders Andrea Sreshta and Anna Stork met at Columbia University while pursuing their Master of Architecture degrees. When tasked to design a product that would support disaster relief, the women considered basic human needs beyond food, water, and shelter. They turned their attention to light, a critical resource in the dangerous nighttime conditions of Haiti’s tent cities. The LuminAID has been used in relief efforts following Hurricane Sandy, Typhoon Haiyan, and the earthquakes in Nepal. It’s also been adopted by outdoor enthusiasts and was even featured on Shark Tank.
