So when we think outdoors we don’t really think “connected” mostly because outside is where we go when we want to break away from all the trappings of modern society. But just in case you’re wanting to get off grid without going too far off grid, check out the BioLight BaseLantern, the flat pack lantern that you can connect to with Bluetooth.
This is a lighting solution and a power source all rolled into one. Oh, and it can also give real time data on your power situation. This device is small, about the size of a sandwich and designed to turn your “off grid” situation into one you control. With the app you can set how the light reacts to certain things as well as just check out the analytics.
The lantern also comes with USB ports to keep devices charged even when away from outlets. The device itself can be charged via micro USB or the BioLight SolarPanel or CampStove. It works well as part of an off grid system with the company’s other products but you don’t have to purchase them. You can get the BioLight BaseLantern for $99.
