THE SITUATION: When you’re camping, sometimes you don’t want to lug a lantern in and out of your tent.
AN ANSWER: EMRG, a lightweight, waterproof and shatterproof inflatable solar lantern was designed for emergencies, but the simple, reliable light works as a safe alternative to a fuel lantern inside a tent or RV. It also makes a nice mood light around camp or a way to light up spaces.
DETAILS: It is 4 inches tall when inflated, but reduces to 1 inch by 5 inches, small enough to fit in a traveling first-aid kit. It weighs 2.5 ounces and has four LED lights that draw little power. It has four settings: bright, super bright, flashing and red SOS. It runs for six to eight hours on its rechargeable battery and lights up about a 10-foot space. It’s inexpensive enough that you can buy several to light up your camp.
