Re: Interesting solar powered light
Picked up a Luci Aura (frosted plastic and different color LEDs) and I'm really liking it, though I haven't used it camping yet (soon though).
Puts out a fair amount of light, but I would say its more of an ambient light than a reading light. A half dozen or so in an SMB could be very cool though. Super compact (almost exactly the diameter of a CD), and just about the same height as a CD when inflated. Deflated, it becomes very thin, with the air valve being the only part that sticks out.
I have not yet checked to see how long the light lasts on one charge.
I ordered off of Amazon and when I ordered it, it had gone down in price to just over $20, but I see that it's back up to the $25 price now. Not sure what was going on there.
SMB-less as of 02/04/2012. Our savings account is richer, but our adventures are poorer.
