Tent lights or lamps  - Just how much stuff do you need to take camping ?

Lamp2

Over the years we have used and tried all sorts of things to light the tent; from massive lanterns runnig off 4x or more 'D' cells to 'Snap Light' glow sticks to simply not bothering and just using the head torch. That was untill we found this. (To be honest we actually had the eariler model  to this which didnt have the rechargeble battey
in it; that simply took 3x AA batteries and was slightly smaller diameter - a good lamp in its self) .

This has a built in rechargable battery  together with a USB socket so you can use it as a power brick to charge your phone. Thats the reason we bought it.
 
No more carrying multiple things. A full charge (4 blue indicator lights on the back) is more than enough to light the tent for a long weekend, charge a smart phone and charge the intercom on the helmet. Its easily hooked up in the tent or simply just sat on the floor. It has 3x brightness levels and a 'flashy' SOS mode if you want a disco in you tent ! - You charge it from a normal USB phone charger and it takes about 2 - 3 hrs from being fully flat.
 
So far its not let us down after multiple charging cycles and (using the low mode) gives a nice soft light to get yourself settled in your little tent.  There is an orange version too if you dont fancy the green.
