Lanterns are really handy things to have when the lights go out and you still need to get things done. The Crush Light Solar Powered Lantern is the small but durable light source that you can take pretty much anywhere.
This lantern chargers up during the day with the power of the sun. When it’s dark, it has a 35-hour run time while on low. Which you don’t need because the sun isn’t down for 35 hours unless your WAY up by the poles. If that’s the case and you’re relying on this thing for light, you’ve probably got much bigger problems on your hands.
Anyway, this thing pops up and crushes down to a slim half-ish of an inch so you can toss it in a bag or glove compartment and you’re ready for whatever life throws at you. You can also charge it with a micro USB if you really need it now, cord included! Get yours for $19.95.
