Save 20% on our favorite emergency lights
LuminAID’s PackLite products are basically light-up balloons.
Ok—technically they’re inflatable solar lanterns. The plastic pouches inflate to be about the size of a volleyball, and they can give off 65 lumens of light for up to eight hours without need for an outlet or disposable batteries.
That makes the lanterns perfect for automobile emergency kits. They’re cheap, packable, and easy to deploy as roadside distress signals. We also usually throw one in our hiking pack, just in case (the lanterns weigh just four ounces, so why wouldn’t we?).
