WINNER - No batteries required... Luci lights up the outdoors. Win a Luci Pro. Competition

© First Ascent

WINNER: Simon Davenport

A SOLAR light that also charges your phone?

Yep, that's the brand-new Luci Pro - a solar-powered, inflatable lantern that burns for up to 50 hours on a single charge, and tops up your phone/camera/device.

Via its two-way USB port, the 150-lumen Pro can be charged from the mains (or, of course, from sunlight via its solar panel), and become the ultimate camping, trekking or expedition light. The same USB port can be connected to any device to extend its battery life, making it the ultimate 2-in-1 outdoor accessory!

Not only that, a portion from every retail sale helps Luci's manufacturer - Mpowrd - fund its work in disaster-hit regions and developing countries. Since 2012, Luci lights have been sent to over 90 countries, bringing light to an estimated 2.6 million people. As well as relief regions, they've also made a big impact in helping with relief efforts in countries without access to mains electricity – helping schools to function, clinics to stay open, and small businesses continue to operate after dark.

Check out this UKC Product News item to see a larger range of Luci Lights.

Luci's re-chargeable Pro lights - the frosted finish Lux and the clear Outdoor 2.0 - are just the latest in Mpowerd's superb line of solar lanterns. These range from the ultralight EMRG (just 72g, and incorporating an SOS flash sequence) to the festival-friendly Colour (8-sequence colour programme). All are inflatable, waterproof, and pack down to a small disc for easy packing.

Genuinely, my "normal" (i.e. non-phone charging) Luci lite is my favourite camping accessory, and from a social enterprise too!

Falls into the category of "why has no one thought of this before".
