Big Light in a Small Space

    Edge-Lighting: A unique textured pattern on the lens reflects the LEDs on a steep angle creating soft, even light along the entire panel without requiring a cavernous space typical of most lanterns.

    High-Efficiency LEDs: White and RGB LEDs located at base of the lens provide warmth control and thousands of color options.

    Rechargeable Battery: A 7800 mAh battery maximizes burn time and gives the ability to share light to the daisy-chainable BioLite SiteLights. USB-charge out powers your gear.

    Stainless Steel Housing: Thinner and even more durable than plastic, the stainless steel housing works double time as a heat sink, helping the LEDs run more efficiently.
