Whether you're always camping, or just like to go on hikes every now and again, you know the importance of having a safe and reliable light source when it starts to get dark in an unknown environment. This LuminAid PackLite Spectra Solar Inflatable & USB Lantern is ideal for outdoor use, whether you park them by the pool or plan to use them during your next camping trip.

These ingenious lights made their first big debut on Shark Tank, where they impressed judges with their slew of high-efficiency features and durable, all-weather exterior. These lamps charge both by USB and solar panel, making them perfect for situations where there's not a power source in sight. They even charge during overcast weather!

You can save battery life while getting a stable light source for up to 12 hours — and they're waterproof, so they can even float in a water source or during a storm. There are nine different color modes you can choose from, including white LED and multi-color fade so that you can send a signal to friends or people from your camp from a distance.

These environmentally-friendly lights had a second showing on Shark Tank back in December, when they were used by Convoy of Hope, a relief partner for natural disasters. Convoy of Hope distributed LuminAID solar devices to south Texas communities after Hurricane Harvey and to the British Virgin Islands after Hurricanes Irma and Maria. LuminAID also helped provide solar light to families affected by the hurricanes in the US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, Turks & Caicos, St. Maarten, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, St. Kitts and Nevis, and the Dominican Republic.

So whether you're looking for a camping accessory or to beef up your emergency kit, this 2-pack of LuminAid PackLite Spectra Solar Inflatable & USB Lantern is ideal. Usually, these lamps are $49.98, but you can get them now for $34.99. You can also donate a light to a family in need here.
